Hello,...I'm starting to do some research for a future project but I've never worked with these models before. I was an outdoors kid growing up so love of that led to some taxidermy for a while; however, my true interest is bone and antler carving,...mix in a little scrimshaw here and there etc,. I've piddled with a variety of things but never really worked with plastic before at all. 

I am really interested in the WWi bi-plane type models. I have a few things to clear off of my bench first but will be reading..saving web pages,..may purchase a book or 2 over the next few months. 

You guys seem to have a nice forum here,..I'll be lurking. Best Regards,.-Aaron

Welcome to the forum, Aaron!

You've picked a great time to start building World War One biplanes.  Look for a company called Wingnut Wings.  It was started by the movie director, Peter Jackson, who is an aviation enthusiast.  That company produces the finest 1/32 WWI subjects ever made.

In other scales, there are some very good kits available from companies like Eduard out of the Czech Republic.  And there is a great selection of kits in 1/72 scale.

And we have a huge selection of tools and supplies, too.  It's a good time to be a modeler!

I look forward to seeing your builds, and I'd like to see your carvings, too.

Best regards,

Brad

I should mention, too, that if you have any interest in sci-fi, fantasy, and horror subjects, that there is an annual show, held in Louisville.  The show's website is here:  https://wonderfest.com/

Even if you're not interested in the subjects, it's still worth visiting, to see the talent on display.

Best regards,

Brad

Brad,..thanks for all the info. I have wingnuts saved,..looks like great products. I'll take all the recomendations i can get for models, tools, info sources etc. I'll probably load up on some come Christmas.

I actually work in Louisville so I appreciate the heads up on the sci-fi show as well. I have a high appreciation for many types of handcrafted work whatever the genre. My bucket list is pretty short but it is all related to different hand made arts. 

I don't have anything current in 3rd party hosting but here is a link to my current on the bench project. Scroll toward the bottom of the thread for the most current pic. I appreciate all the feedback from you guys. - Aaron
