Hi, welcome to my website. I reckon my FrontPage has probably hinted you some ideas on what this site is all about & how it's gonna be slightly different from the rest. My name is Tee Shiuh Sheng; I am in my 30s and am married. Sigh! How times flies! Since this is a modeling related site, maybe I will elaborate more on my modeling background.
I have been messing with models for over 17 years. My favorite subject is 1/12 scale motorcycles and large-scale (1/12) cars. Of course, I did not get sucked into motorcycles building; I remember my first kit, a Hasegawa 1/72 WWII Messerschmitt Bf109, given to me on my Birthday. I build it in a day and later painted it with poster colours. From then on I was hooked! Poster colours gave way to model paints from Humbro & Tamiyas'. Back then like all boys, I was fascinated with military stuff (still am) ships; tanks & airplanes and they made up most of my collections.
Bikes & cars did not capture my attention till late 1985 where news of Freddie Spencer winning the double reached me. My first bike? Cannot remember. Might be the Honda NSR500. Modeling skills? Horrible. Glue marks everywhere, untidy paint jobs and always "build them as fast as possible"
My first serious bike was not till 10 years later. Tamiya Ducati 900 NCR. It was then I started working, I buy more kits, build more bikes but still not as good. Then suddenly there was the "Internet"! A lot of information, a lot of reference materials! Those unbelievable serious works always amaze me! I vowed someday that my work would be as good as theirs'.
Come Year 2003, what have I achieved? Sad to say: 12 bikes built and a dozen more lays half built. What happened?!!!? Work commitment and marriage kept me busy. During those years I amass a huge range & quantity of models. I am proud to say I have almost 98% of all Tamiya 1/12 cars and bikes! 2003 will be the year I stop buying (I hope) and start building and along the way I'll show you what I've learned and how we can improve together. Like I've stated in my FrontPage, I hope my website will be great for beginners venturing into this hobby.
Hey wait a minute! This page is supposed to introduce "About Me"! Well below is three love of my life:
