Greetings from WA
Posted by PhoenixG on Thursday, October 14, 2021 1:57 PM

I've spent the last couple of years working back into the hobby.  The last six months seeing a marked uptick in my model building activities.  Throughout this time I have been busy absorbing information from all of the wonderful resources available via FineScale and its community.

My focus is almost exclusively science fiction but have recently been dabbling in WWII era fighters and enjoying it.  AFVs are on my radar as well.

I've spent a lot of time being an observer and perhaps this will be the start of a transition to participant.

On The Bench:

Bandai 1/144 Y-Wing

Well, welcome to the forum!  I look forward to seeing your builds.

Greetings from WA to WA.  My WA is Washington state, and I'm going to guess that yours is Western Australia.

 

One way or another, welcome and I hope you always get joy from your modeling.

Welcome PhoenixG! Can't wait to see what you post up...

In the pattern: Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! leaning out the list, we're down to a Monogram 1/72 SR-71 and 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!

Well, welcome indeed!  I'm in the north end of the greater Seattle area.  It has seemed that Australia is very well represented in these forums and I just assumed more of the same from the other end of the world.

Looking to see your work.  Smile

Best regards,
Rick
