Hi im 13, and have been off and on with models since i was probably 7 or 8.I now am trying to get into more detailed models, like airbrushing, drybrushing, etc. I just started airbrushing and im practicing with it because i have a nice 1/48 scale P-38J Lightning and want it to be my best model so far(and detailed).If anyone has any good tips that would help a lot, thanks.Big Smile [:D]

Welcome to FSM flyboy11. It's great to see the younger generation striving to build higher detailed models. And I must say I like the thought that you want this one to be your best, so far. Keep living up to that and you will do great.
Happy Modelling and God Bless Robert

Welcome flyboy11.
Glad to have you on board. The forums have alot to offer. I've picked up a few things and I hope I've helped a few people in the process. So ask question and try new things.
