New Guy to Fine Scale Modeler
Posted by Buzz64_53 on Tuesday, March 15, 2022 10:16 AM

Back to modeling after a short 45 year break.

Joined a local club and discovered how much the hobby has developed and kits/supplies have evolved and improved.

I stay mainly in the Armor / military vehicle lanes with 1/72 my preference. 

Looking forward to learning from forums and posts.

Happy Modeling!

Welcome.  I look forward to seeing your builds.  Especially 1/72 armor!  All those tiny road wheels

Welcome back to the hobby, Buzz, and welcome to the forum!  I look forward to seeing your armor builds. I built Braille-scale armor when I was a kid (b 1964), mostly Airfix.  They were a lot of fun!

Best regards,

Welcome to the Forums Buzz! Welcome back to the hobby. Glad to have you aboard.

My favorites are WWI & WWII planes followed by sailing ships. Used to build 1/72 scale a lot but at 82 years old the eyes and hands are not what they used to be so 1/48 is the smallest I go now unless it's a special model that I really want. Only problem with that is you quickly run out of room to put them. 

Relax and enjoy. If you have any questions/problems just ask.

I keep hitting "escape", but I'm still here.

Welcome back to the bench! I peek into armor every once in awhile. Will look for you when i do. Looking forward to seeing you 1st build!

In the pattern: Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! leaning out the list, we're down to that Tamiya P-38F/G to use the other nose art Exito Decal (in-flight for this one), & in keeping with MC's hydra theory I bought another F-5E to do in FROG camo! And I just got a Trumpeter 1/32 F/A-18F!
