Hey Everyone!
Posted by Grade on Monday, April 30, 2018 8:51 PM

Hello everyone. Long time lurker of FineScale here. At least as long as I've been modeling which is just over a year. I've thoroughly enjoyed the discussions and hope to be part and offer something myself. As for now, I'm just happy to hear the opinions and techniques of others.

Welcome Sign Welcome Grade!

Glad to see that your lurking days are over and you've finally decided to take the plunge.  What is your favorite genre of models?  Me?  I'm a U.S. WW2/Cold  War kinda guy with the Monogram/Revell kits being my all-time favorites.

The weekend is here.  Time to get building!

I started out with a Revell Corsair which has always been a favorite. Yet for some reason, every other model I have done has been a Cold War era jet(F-105, MiG-23, DH Sea Vixen). The mix is of Revell and Trumpeter with one Airfix. 

Also you are right! I've got a lot on the bench!
