New man on the deck!
Posted by Desize on Friday, November 16, 2018 7:51 PM

Hello! My name is Liam, or Desize. I am a 11, nearly 12 (December 30th is my B'day) year old modeler. I am fascinated with the World War 2 area. I collect, and have even built up my own archives on it. My first model I ever made was a 1/48 Tamiya P-51 Mustang model at the age of 7 with my father. We had done 1 other model after that, but I sort of got out of modeling and into gaming. I've decided to set aside the gaming mouse and keyboard for a while and get back into modeling. Right now, I am currently building a pretty annoying model, that doesn't want to sit and stay (heck, even my dog knows how to do that!). Also, I'm an old soul. I like to paint in old ways too. I don't ever use a single airbrush. I like my spray paint and Tamiya paints manually applied with a brush.  Anyways, that's enough of me for now! Adios!

Howdy !

My wife say's I "act" like I'm 12 year's old ..... so we will get along just fine.

I like WWII stuff too. Especially German Sub's .

I like to paint in old ways too. I don't ever use a single airbrush. I like my spray paint and Tamiya paints manually applied with a brush. 

I have been using "Rattle Can's" for 46 year's . Nothing wrong with them, But, I recently got an airbrush..... MAN, that's a different animal entirely !

Welcome to FSM.

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

Welcome to the Forums Liam! Glad to have you with us.

I've been building models since I was 6 years old. I am now 78 years old and still building. My favorites are WWI and WWII planes followed by sailing ships but I will build anything that I see that I like and my wallet says OK. 

If you have any questions or problems with a model, just ask for help. That's what we're here for. There are no dumb questions. We have all needed help at one time or another.

I keep hitting "escape", but I'm still here.
