Welcome to the Forums Fletcher! Glad to have you aboard!

You've come to the right place to accomplish your goals. The members here are very knowledgeable and are ready to help you with any problems/questions that you might have. That's what we're here for.

I've been building for 70 of my 76 years and learned a lot here and I'm learning something new almost every day. My favorites are 1/72 and 1/48 WWI & WWII planes along with sailing ships. But, I also build anything I see that strikes my fancy and my wallet says OK.

Enjoy! Looking forward to seeing pics of your builds.

I keep hitting "escape", but I'm still here.

Howdy Fletcher !  I started building models at a young age too ( I was 4 ) but now I'm 51. 

I almost remember 16..... LOL.  Feel free to ask as many questions as you want . Sombody usually has the right answer. Dont forget.... we love pictures . make sure to post a few of your builds. 

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