Hello from Ontario Canada
Posted by Auggie on Friday, February 02, 2018 1:13 PM

I have been a model figure enthusiast for ages now. I thought that I would like to try my hand at building a ship model. This site/forum looked like the best place to start. Just reading some of the entries has helped me immensely in my choice of a first model.

A bit more about myself,....

I live in Fergus on the banks of the Grand River. My wife and I are now retired from the advertising business. In the summer months I'm a fly fishing guide and instructor.

Off season I create Napoleonic dioramas. The figures range from 90 mm to 30mm and 1/72 scale. I also paint flats. Now I'm keen to build a ship model.

Thanks for welcoming me fellas!

Howdy !

I will build just about anything.   I use to do Ral Partha figure's , as well as Grenider gameing figure's. I sold them all for 10 x what I paid for them.... wish  I hadn't .... can't find them for any price now.

Welcome to FSM.

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