Well I have taken the plunge and decided to start proper modelling again and quite by chance found this 1/32 Tamiya kit with loads of accessories on a popular auction site and although I'm better known for car modelling I have always wanted to do a 1/32nd aircraft kit .
Because of things that are happening with us at the moment (my dad is seriously ill in hospital) I needed a boost and this has done the job, because I'm taking mum to see dad every few days replies may be slow plus I need to get paints etc :wooo: also won a cheap airbrush just in case I didn't enjoy the kit I will add some photo's later of what I have and then once I've started we'll go from there--Its good to be back!!

Best wishes to all
Steve

Steve, I've used a temporary fix so that the images are visible, however I'd recommend you open a flickr account. This is free and they give you oodles of storage space.

Hi All

Well started the kit on Saturday after everything else had been done and I had been round to see dad who isn't well but comfortable at the moment, The engine is great and straightforward so much so that I had most of the photoetch on will add pictures when I get the hang of my new Flickr account.

Yesterday I mixed up a Green interior colour that I was happy with and used my new used airbrush and wow its my 1st Paasche airbrush and I could have done the inside of my shed in 10 mins :D trying to decide whether to use all off the detail stuff or sell some on but the Eduard photoetch is excellent and very thin?? like I said as soon as I get the hang of the Flickr account I will chuck up some pics

Thanks for looking and its great to be back proper modelling

Just a quickie to say that on a par with everything else that's happened this year my mums brother has now passed away this was the uncle who got me into modelling in July 1966 hopefully now that my dad is out of hospital I'll get some modelling done

Thanks for your patience

Sounds like a rough few months. Hope your Dad stays well and you get to enjoy your modelling.
