Yet another Newbie...

Hi,

I'm Jeff. Had Lego sets as a kid, bought them for my kids, and now I'm buying them yet again... Not that, that is a bad thing. Mostly into Technic, so far.

Spent 20 years in the US Navy on the Lockheed P-3 Orion. So am an aviation buff as well. Currently working in the aviation industry.

    Nice. Do you favor aviation themed Lego models and/or MOCs?

    Greetings from a fellow Jeff...my dad was an airline pilot, so I've been flying all my life. Biggest thrill was a ride on a B-17 for my 40th birthday; what an amazing aircraft!

    Have you seen this store? You might like this particular model!

    Just getting back into Legos, and Technic for most part. Back when my son was younger, I did an airport on his bedroom floor using colored electrical tape. We used Lego's, some themed aircraft, and some MOCs. Though unfortunately apparently the box with those Lego's were left at a house we moved out of.
