Looks like we should have some really nice builds coming!

I'll be doing a 1/72 Hasegawa Fw190 F-8. I picked it up along with a resin pit at a show earlier this year.

I am stoked about building this one. It is motteled upper and lower heavily and should take some time to paint. It looks super cool in the box art. Thanks for the kind words.

This sounds like it's going to be fun!

Put me down for both a Bf 109 G-10 and an Fw 190 D-9, both 1/32 Hasegawa.

I got a bunch of goodies for both of them, so I might go a bit crazy with that...

Hi all. I am interested in this GB. This would be my first one! Will this work for the build? I am new so I am worried that my level of building will not be up to par or expectations for a GB?

PB,

Your kit is perfect for this GB. And do not worry about your level of building. I am still new to this great hobby and a GB is the best place to learn tips and techniques from all of the members involved in the GB. I have learned quickly that everyone in the forums are more then happy to help...don't hesitate to ask questions. That is one of the great things about a GB...the conversations that take place. If you read all of them I promise you will learn something. Happy to see you join, and just enjoy the build. Look forward to seeing your build.

Sweet! Count me in. I will put this on the bench with the 69 dodge and do them both at the same time. Since I have so much time to do this in I will be able to do research and get some airbrush practice in. Really excited about this!! You should make badge for us also! lol.

Interesting looking kit. We don't get Lindberg over here, so will be nice to see somthing different. And don't worry, all levels are welcome in the GB's on here. All thats needed is a kit, a camera and a sense of humour and your well away.

 I know Andy will welcome you when he checks in.
