Welcome Sign

Welcome Saffer!  You've tried the rest, it's good to see you've come to the best. Ha-ha-ha!  But seriously, this is a great hobby to be in where you can find most any flavor to satisfy your modeling sweet tooth.  The best part is that you truly have come to the best modeling chat forum on the web.  

ASK ANY QUESTION!!  Don't feel shy or embarrassed about anything!  I've been modeling for about 40 years and I swear I'm still learning new things.  That's the thing about model building.  You never stop learning and you always get better.

Welcome once again and it's great to have you here!

Welcome o the Forums Saffer! Glad to have you aboard!

I've been building for 70 of my 76 years along with all the other hobbies too. I've learned a lot over the years and continue to earn from the membrs here. As Eric said, this is the best of the best. I keep learning something new almost every day and my builds keep getting better too.

Soooooooo, sit back, relax, have a sip or two of your favorite brew whether it be CoffeeBeerDrinks, or my favoriteToast and enjoy the hobby.

Howdy!  Great to have you onboard.

If you can glue one piece of plastic to another... then your a modeler.

If you can glue ten- thousand pieces of plastic together...  well .. then... I'm out of my league.

I will observe your progress from my cave.

While I glue together sticks and rocks.

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

Having a few hobbies is a good thing.  Adding modeling to the list is even better.  Smile
