Hi from Bristol, UK
Posted by scale_army on Friday, January 24, 2020 10:09 AM

Hello everyone. I have been a lurker for a while but I signed up today.

My name is Dave and I live in Bristol, UK. I started building last summer after not touching a kit for 20 years. In that time is has gone from casual weekend build to full on obsession. My background is in visual arts. I run a design and animation studio by day.

Still finding my feet but I am loving 1/35 armour at the moment.

Following a recent trip to Bovington Tank Museum, I currently have a Meng British Heavy Tank Mk.V Male on the bench. It is going to be in a maintenace diorama with a sponson removed so we can see all that lovely interior detail. I also built a trolley for the sponson (also on display at the museum) that will also be in the diorama with four WW1 figures. 

Glad to join the community.

Welcome back to the hobby and welcome to the forum, Dave!  That looks like a great project, and I look forward to seeing your progress and your finished build.

Best regards,
