Returning to modeling after a very long break!
Posted by HHscale on Tuesday, January 30, 2018 4:23 AM

Hello - I'm glad to be part of this modeling community - as others often say, life got in the way - but now I'm retired and keen to get more active again. I live in Denmark. My dad was an avid modeller, had a Tri-ang train layout and my earliest modeling memories are of him Building Kitmaster models of locomotives and carriages, usually using custom paint for the various operators in the UK. We also built the large Airfix HMS Victory. I was put in charge of painting the cannons. The Vistorybhas a lot of cannons! I progressed to Airfix and Revell car kits and cars remained my main interest, though I also built aircraft kits. After work, and families, I am now back and keen to build armor and softskin models. I have my brother to keep me on my toes, we keep build blogs. I have been a reader of your excellent Magazine for some years now, and I'm ready to take the plunge!

Welcome aboard. I don't recall seeing anyone on here from Denmark before, so you may be the first.

Howdy !

I build just about anything i can get my hand's on. First snap-together kit when I was 4. My first real kit ( AMT 57 ford victoria ) when I was 6.

Also started my first train layout about the same time. There are a few train guys here.....

Plenty of room for one more !

Welcome to the Forums! Glad to have you aboard.

I've been building models for 71 of my 77 years. WWI & WWII planes are my favorite with sailing ships bringing up a close second. I've also built anything that struck my fancy over the years and my wallet said OK. Still do. Hang in there and enjoy.

Welcome to the Foruns...

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

Ha, ha...  this is true...
