Since there's a new policy which may or may not be in effect for a good long while, I thought it might be best to give new members a new place to post at least one of their three new posts w/in the forum. Several other forums here on HobbyTalk - as do a few other forums I infrequently frequent - have such an introduction/welcome thread, so why not, right?

With that in mind, please tell us a little bit about yourself. You don't have to give a laundry list, but tell us what sort of kits you build, maybe a geographical reference - i.e. "I live in the greater New York City area" sort of thing - and how long you've been doing this.

Hello my name is Thomas Doughty, my friends in the Battletech Community call me Bandit. I am an avid player of Warhammer 40K, and Battletech. I have just started getting into the hobby side of 40K and have been painting the minis used for the game. Chad Glass a friend of mine recommended I come to this site to get ideas on how to better present my models. I am very eager to see your post and pics and look forward to learning a lot from the members of this site.

Hi, my name is Smusno (Dave)

I made kits when I was a kid. I built some Trek, I built some planes, I built A MILLION F-14's:tongue:
I drew, I painted, I painted all my brothers GW miniatures.

I STOPPED!!

I grew up. I got a car, a girl, a sport, and a taste for Jack Daniels.

30 something years later, im back painting spaceships, and LOVING IT.
Ive finished 1, in the middle of another. Im a massive starfleet fan, but seem to like painting grimy Klingon boats more?




She is my first..........

But she...........................


Is my mistress!

There are only 2 things you need to know about me.
1. I take very little seriously, and i love to laugh.
2. I HATE the Trek police. If I want to paint it pink with blue spots, im going to.
:freak:

Welcome! When I was new, I wondered the same. But the OTHER sci/fi forum is strictly off topic shows and movies "talk". No personal models or builds are pictured there.
Although my tag says "elder statesmen", I'm a relative newbie here. I just post alot. Hope to see your builds pictured here!

:wave:

Welcome, Dave! I love your pictures! Great job. The Voyager is one of my all time favorites! (And the Reliant.) Hope to see more of your stuff!

Welcome, Bandit! The art of Battletech and Warhammer is appearing at my local IPMS meetings. I attend the Silicon Valley Scale Modeler's chapter, in Milpitas, CA. Glad to see some cool stuff coming "mainstream". Although I'm listed as an "elder statesmen", I'm a relative newbie. Just started building again in the late 90's. Again, welcome!

I like it!! I went back to the first post a few nights ago, and saw you there! You go way back! Thanks for the mod duty. Nice to have a guy at the ready when things go South.......:wave:

Greetings and felicitations! Tally-ho!

Hi, I'm new here--well I've lurked occasionally the last few years--but I post fairly frequently on Starship Modeler forum. I do love my '50s sci-fi, hence my handle "Bellerophon" from Forbidden Planet.

After years of not getting much modeling done, I'm at it just about every day. I'm doing a build log on my Pegasus Martian War Machine (I do build logs about everything now!), but I'll start a thread for that.

Well, I'm not new by any means, but I was gone for a couple of years so I could focus on gettin an education. The project that I was researching when I joined is still on the agenda, but is gonna be sittin on the shelf for a while because of cost and not having room to do it right now. That project is a historically accurate 1/48 scale diorama of the air battle my grandpa was shot down in during WWII.

a little about me: While I was gone, I went to tech school to study auto-diesel technology and heavy equipment maintenance. My three favorite hobbies are football, fishin, and model building. It has been a while since I built a kit, so I am looking to get back into the swing of things with a 1/48 corsair as it is one of the few American fighters I have not built. Star Trek is what brought me back though. After I have done a model or two, I'm planning to do a lighted version of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D which will likely be followed by the lighted 1/350 scale NCC-1701-A.

end rambling...

New member here.

I build mostly 1/48 Aircraft of all eras with some Real Space and Sci-Fi ships as well. I dabble in 1/35 military vehicles from time to time.

I'm actually coming back to the hobby after a slight hiatus of around 15 years!

Hi everyone!

I'm Carl, and I love me some Trek models.:) I built them on and off since I was a little kid, but now that I'm a semi-grown up, I'm attempting to go back and build them properly. I'm just starting to try my hand at resin kits too, so expect plenty of noobish questions from this poor hapless schmoe. :eek:

Anyways, I should have some stuff to post soon, see you around!

New here

I'm a 42 year old father of 2 and accidentally got into modelling last year when my wife bought a Polar Lights Batboat for my birthday. Had such fun, I've completed a handful of kits since then. I found this website when looking for tips and you guys do amazing work. I got a looong way to go, but getting there is a lot of fun. Waiting for a 1/1000 D-7 to arrive in the mail, which will be the first kit I use an airbrush with:thumbsup:.

Well I have lurked here some but I usually hang out at the Starship Modeler site. I have the same Forum name here, so it shouldn';t be too hard for most people from SSM to identify me. I just finally decided to set up an account here.

Hello from Japan!

Hi all! I walked into my local Volks shop and my jaw dropped when I saw the Fujimi Spinner from Blade Runner prominently displayed. I hadn't built a kit for 25+ years but I had to give this one a try!

I felt the need to warm up so I built a simple Japanese arcade console, Taiko no Tatsujin. By this time the Blade Runner sedan and police car had been released, bought 'em both and built the sedan.

The Spinner's up next and I have my eye on the 2001 Moon Bus. The threads here have been incredibly helpful!

Cheers,

Martin
