Old modeler here.. from Canada
Posted by satiable on Saturday, September 22, 2018 10:17 PM

Hey everyone, just getting back into modeling after a looong layoff lol. Looks like an amazing community here. I'm strictly focusing on model warplanes now, in 1/72 scale, hoping I can impress. *crosses fingers*

Great to be with you!

Welcome to the Forums! Glad to have you aboard.

Been building for 71 of my 77 years. I build whatever strikes my fancy and my wallet says OK. My favorites are WWI & WWII planes and Sailing Ships. 

Don't worry about "impressing" anyone. Build to please yourself. If you do, that's all that counts. No one here will tell you your work is not good. They will tell you how to improve your builds "if needed" and "if asked for".

Enjoy!

Thanks so much all for the warm welcome! Smile

When I mention looking to impress, it's just my sense of pride that wishes for a positive review on my builds, however, I will always welcome negative criticism, as that just drives me to be better at what I do.

I used to focus on building cars mainly, with the odd truck/aircraft thrown into the mix. Lately though I've obsessed with warplanes, as I reflect on the past, wishing I'd have joined the air force. Ahhh, but alas I'm approaching 50, so too late lol.

Right now I'm finishing up a custom CF-18, using an F/A-18A+ kit, trying my hand at weathering for the first time. So far, so good. Yes

You will be just fine here. Lot's of modeler's here are "into" the same thing.
