Hello everyone, just subscribed and set up this account so I'll introduce myself.

I've been turning great kits into terrible models for some years now, but that's fine. It seems to me that I enjoy the process more than the outcome - or maybe it's just the solvent vapours. 

The subject matter varies but civil aircraft, cars and motorcycles are my favourites. Mostly from the era that can be called AC-BC (After chrome, before carbon).

I live in Ireland at the moment, where the long winter evenings are conducive to the hobby.

I learned a lot from my Grandfather, he came from the Era I like to call B.G.  ( before Gas )

Welcome to the Forums! Glad to have you aboard!

You've come to the right place. If you have any questions, or problems, just ask. 

My faves are WWI & WWII planes and sailing ships bring up a close second. 

Sit back, relax and enjoy.

Welcome Sign  I like the vapours too, especially Tamiya extra thin.  Gotta be careful, though.  Must preserve the few functioning brain cells I have left!
