Hello from Argentina
Posted by FJSigma on Thursday, October 15, 2020 12:58 PM

Hi to everyone.

I've been looking around this site (and SAM) for a time now, but never posted here. I started building small planes as a kid with my father, then started to buy and build my own 1:72 airplanes. Then I decided I wanted to build 1:25 cars, bought a few models based on price and availability mostly (before the 90s there was not much options here and Internet was a dream). Started to build a few cars at the same time and got stuck in shell painting because I never had an airbrush and spray cans were also hard to find here. Then I started university, knew my wife, got engaged, married, moved to a small appartement, kids, work... and the hobby got boxed for about 30 years.

A couple of years ago I had to let my 1:1 project go and started to unbox what was left from when I was young and continued the build from there. I've posted on the SAM forum because I'm currently trying to finish a few car models but I already have some airplanes waiting to be built. I really enjoy the Autos, Military and Civil aircraft, Helicopter and Sci-Fi forums. I hope I can keep learning from you, since there are a lot of amazing modellers in the forum.

Below the 2 models I was able to finish. I'm not particularly proud of them, but considering they are my first 2, I'm happy anyway.

SA modelers are many on this site. You have the advantage of real time posting with we Northerners.

Your cars look good, nice photos too.



 Modeling is an excuse to buy books.
