Hi there

After haunting the forums looking at some of the great info and content I finally decided to join up!

I have just recently done the Dragon Apollo 11 kit, finshed an AMT 73 Corvette and finishing off another AMT 62 Corvette.  As much as I love older sytle cars, these AMT kits were a bit of a challenge... fitment mainly.

I have just picked up the Dragon Apollo 13 kit as my wife is obsessed with the movie and the Apollo 11 wasn't a challenge enough (sarcasm).  I'm sure I'll still enjoy building the kit and making the same mistakes that I made the first time.

Anyways, I am looking to do a 1/48 WWII fighter of types, but can't make up my mind.  I hear plenty of good things about the Tamiya Spitfire Mk1 done with the new tooling as the detailing looks good. Would anyone recommend it? 

I would also like to check out some recommendations for a  good Eduard kit - i'm chasing detail of course - so please recommend away!

Anyways, it was good to finally join the forum.  Look forward to catching you all on here later!

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting a head off a Hydra, two more take it's place.

Welcome aboard.  I'd love to see your realspace builds - I haven't done those, but I've been getting interested lately.  I did the old tool Tamiya MK1 and it's a great kit.

Thanks,

John
