Any model builders 'round these parts?

I too was into models  , lost interest , life got in the way .   But I also am looking at getting back into it.
I was always into military stuff , jet planes & battle ships.  I have 5 models in the shed , I was thinking about giving them away but not now.
As much of a car nut I am , I prefer military models.

Ain't nothing wrong with military models, I have some modern fighter jet kits (F-14, F-15E, F-16, MiG-29, etc.), and an Avro Lancaster WWI English bomber I inherited along the way, along with a YB-49 Flying Wing glue bomb rescued from heading to the dumpster at work.  I love building the warbirds as well and plan on more jets and WWII kits.  There are a bunch of military ground vehicles (tanks, half-tracks, armored personnel carriers, etc.) and even some ships (aircraft carriers, destroyers, battleships, Titanic, galleons, etc.) I'd like to find time for as well.  I also have a growing collection of sci-fi ships (Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, etc.) with many of them being original release kits from the '70s & '80s I picked up from ebay.

I just love building miniature replicas of things I've seen.  I had a lot of fun building a few homes and commercial buildings when I was taking Architectural Drafting classes in high school (that was my dream career, but the Air Force had other plans for the direction my life took).

My goal now is to be able to get through the rapidly expanding list of things I want to build before I eventually run out of time (hopefully, quite a ways down the road).  I've done my full-size car restoration (reminded me of putting together a giant kit at times), so it's time to concentrate on the small scale stuff and just enjoy the Mach 1 now.

I think the reason my interests leans toward the military models, is where I live , we are only 45 minutes away from an old military air base. I think thats my reason toward the military models, I live only 45 minutes away from a former Sac base. (KI Sawyer).   So we were seeing bombers B-52s and other jets  flying over our small town all the time. Base turned over to the local goverment years ago.
As a young boy scout I was able to actually sit inside a B-52 bomber, we also got a tour of the base and up close look at the other jet planes. 
And as a young boy , I was around military people , my uncle was a hi ranking officer in the Air Force and a pilot at a  B-52 bomber base in lower Mich.
I would sit on my dads lap at nite and watch war movies with him.
