New Guy Here
Posted by afv_junkie on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 1:58 AM

Hullo all! I have decided to get back into the hobby after a very long hiatus. Now that my kid is nearly an adult, I want to build some models! I've done armor, planes, figures, and a couple of vessels, but armor is and will always be my first love. Went to my local hobby store but the pickings were lean. Walked out with a Lindberg T-55 as it was the only AFV kit they had but it suited my wallet ($12 bucks on sale).  It comes with parts and decals to make an Israeli Tiran 5 and that's my groove for this project.  

Forgive me, I'm rambling. Just excited to get back into the hobby and learning some new tricks and techniques.
