Though I build more than tanks! Hi, I just joined. I am getting back into plastic model building after having been out for a while. With better liquid glues, acrylic model paints, and the internet, I'm finding it a lot easier to build and finish models. Gotta admit I hated using enamels with the paint thinners stinking up everything.
Anyway, I've always been fond of tanks and for the last 24 years have been involved with the design, protection and / or the builiding of tanks and Army vehicles (I work in Warren, MI if that's any help figuring out what I do!).
Last year I wanted to get back in and decided that 1/72 was a good scale for me to build in, to save room. My 5 year old son wanted to know what I was doing and naturally wanted to do it too. So I started buying Armourfast models, with two models per box, one for him and one for me. We've gradually been letting him do more and more of the building and painting.
Below is a selection of our models in various states of build.
