back to making models again
Posted by rejd on Saturday, April 11, 2020 5:53 PM

Hey all. I just joined this great community. I made a few models back in the day (30 years ago) but never had to patience to do them correctly! Was always in a rush to get them together. With us all in basic lockdown, my son and I have started to buil models. I made a post on the Ships forum (it was my first post so waiting for it to be approved) of our work so far and what I have learned that I will bring to my next project.

I have been looking through many topics and see there is a great deal of knowledge here. I am looking forward to progressing throgh this hobby and learning what I can. Perhaps in the future I may be able to help others as well.

Thanks all and have a great day!

Welcome!  I see I'm not the only one who is getting back into model building after a long break.

Yes, we all acquired the "build it after homework but before dinner" habit.

Most active modelers will build more than one model at a time. We all have our most and least favorite phases of builds and this helps overcome getting stuck.
