Hi there
Posted by mrcdrx on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 8:34 AM


Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Marc and I just got into the wonderful world of scale modeling, as a way to relax after work. I'm currently building my first kit, the Revell 1/48 Spitfire Mk II, and on my birthday received a few other Revell kits as a gift: the 1/72 Vought F4U Corsair, the 1/72 UH-1 Gunship, the 1/144 U-Boat XXI U 2540 and the 1/48 B-17F "Memphis Belle". So I got my work cut out :)

I'm lookin forward to meet you all, and I'll post pictures of kits in progression for you to comment on.

On the bench:
Revell 1/48 Supermarine Spitfire Mk II

On Deck:

  • Revell 1/72 Vought F4U Corsair
  • Revell 1/72 UH-1H Gunship

  • many, many other builds...

  • Revell 1/144 U-Boat Type XXI U2540
  • Revell 1/47 B-17F "Memphis Belle"

Hi Marc, Welcome Sign

1/700 Tamiya Scharnhorst

Completing a kit is like cutting the head off a Hydra. Two more replace it in the stash.

the 1/144 U-Boat XXI U 2540

Welcome !  U-2540 the Wiliam bauer ( probably didnt spell that right ) I built the cut-away version of that a few years ago. You will love it !

                      Dont worry about the thumbprint... paint it rust and call it "Battle damage" !
