Sorry for not getting in here and introducing myself. Prospero Quevedo 63, I'm a native Cali born in downtown Los Angeles. I started building models when I was five years old, my family later told me they thought I was going to be a genius I would build my models be so nest with my glue no spilling. Lol they told me that years later and I told them I was sorry I disappointed them and wasn't a genius. By middle school and high school I was into large scale 1/32 tanks and aircraft. In Jr. Coolege I got into 1/144 started with LS kits they were very inexpensive and very detailed. They were one of the first companies doing etched detail even ha sagas and tamiya were just starting. Anyway the company disappeared could never find out if they just went under or bought out but their old molds still seem to resurface now and then. I'm hoping to meet other 1/244 modelers to discuss kits and products. Have a great day to all on the forum.
