I've restarted modeling as and adult, I loved its as a kid and am rediscovering the joy of modeling. I'm really enjoying learning new techniques of the hobby, so much has changed from when I was a kid. I'll be turning 60 soon. There is so much to learn and discover. My main build interest is in wwii armor and figures.

There are tons of folks here with the same passion. Everyone is freindly and happy to give advice when asked. You won't find any mean people here. Welcome aboard the sprue addiction train. Let the stash building begin.

FYI, in armor the scale 1/35 means build one, buy 35.
