Hello from San Jose
Posted by Martinlb on Sunday, February 20, 2022 7:04 PM


I've just joined here and hope to get some help and advice.  It's been close to 50 years since I was building scale models and I'm getting back into it and looking forward to building as an adult.  As a kid I lacked the patience to do things right, even to the point of not always trimming the tags off after taking a part off its tree.

Thanks for having me here.
