Hello!
Posted by Kali Alaura on Saturday, September 09, 2017 11:50 PM

To be honest, I really haven't built many models, but I love admireing them!  I want to get much more into models of all sorts, though planes and cars are probably my favorite.

Here in the airport in town, there are litterally thousands of tiny planes!  I could look at them for hours!

Howdy ! "Goddes of destruction " you say..... You just keep your hammer on your side of the workbench and we will get along just fine.

Welcome to the forums.  Dont forget to post pictures of whatever you'r building. We love pictures. 

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

Welcome to the FSM forums Kali.  There's tons of information here and a great community of modelers to learn from.

Well thank you all for the big welcome! 

Honestly though... I have a bit of a confession. My real love is to set a perfectly done beautiful model on the ground at my feet, then pretend that I am a giant goddess.... then crush them into tiny smashed pieces! Indifferent Devil Wink

There is nothing as wonderful or makes me feel so powerful as feeling the plastic shatter under my boot, or my high heel penetrate into the fragile wing of a plane!  :-)

I am sure you all will hate me, but that is REALLY what I enjoy about models!  I used to have a boyfriend that would build them for me as presents just so I would get to crush them and pretend I was a giant goddess!

I hope you don't hate me, but that is what I want to do to every little model car, plane, tank, ship I ever see! ;-)

Hi , And Welcome ;

 Now that said . Planes can be fun . Building models of them even more so . You may find that there is one or two that really have caught your fancy . The modern biz jets don't count as there are very few in model form . Helicopters and prop jobs aplenty , though . T.B.     There are a lot of fairly common military aircraft though .Perhaps a BF -109 In triplicate would help curb that destructive hunger ?
