Thought I'd drop a 'hi' in on the newb thread.

I'm not as much of a modeler anymore as a fabricator type. Really, I'm here for the info. This type of forum has a different view then a lot of other forums.

A bit late to the party as I've been a lurker for a while now, but...
Hi!
I'm a science fiction / fantasy builder mostly although there are exceptions. I do most of my work in the winter as summer is taken up with other hobbies. Look forward to seeing all the great work folks are doing on the board over the colder months!

Howdy folks! I'm Rob, some of you know me from other boards. I've lurked here for a while. I got tired of not being able to see all the pictures so I joined up :)

I've been into the prop hobby and haven't had time to build models, but I hope to do some next year.

Introduction

Greetings all,

I am new to the forum but not modeling. I grew up building models, mainly Star Trek and Star Wars. I am also a model railroader.

I am amazed at what has changed in the years I have been out. The large decals the increased details and I like that models are being released again with improvments made to them.

I am just getting back into building sci-fi models and I am looking at taking my work to the next level with adding PE parts and adding lights to them.

I do not post often. I will add pictures now and again and ask questions from time to time but mainly I will read and learn.

Take care,
Christopher

Hi, I used to be a big modeller but drifted away from the hobby about 20 years ago. I have an assortment of old Trek models to finish, and I just bought a PE TOS Enterprise to get back into the hobby. Wish me luck

Hi all!

I started building models at age 7. Back then I built Aurora super heroes mostly and brush painted them. In my teens I got into WWII german military miniatures back when Squadron Shop had an actual store in Michigan and discovered the air brush. I did try to build an Enterprise out of balsa wood with a boy scout knife in seventh grade and have a bad scar on my thumb to remind me. I did a lot of modeling into my thirties, mostly science fiction and then went back to school to become an Architect. I have collected kits sense then, but have built almost nothing. I'm now in my fifties and want to dive in again. I know this site will help.:wave:

Thanks in advance,
Gary

For me I like most models. I used to build as a kid . Turned 16 , Got a car all the fun stuff as a teenager and a man in his 20's . But never stopped collecting models. Love STAR WARS and Battlestar Galactica orginal and new series or anything Sci Fi related. Bought so many models . I sold a lot of them and started getting into more expensive models. I collect Spaceships and things already prebuilt. But Im retired at 50. Now Im trying to get back to building. I live in Saint Petersburg Florida.

Greetings everyone. Lots of talented people here! I've been checking the various threads here that would help with my 350 TOS build. Maybe to gain confidence, more than anything! Having grown up on classic Trek, I haven't built a model since the TNG Enterprise in the mid 80s. So when the Round 2 Big E came out I just couldn't resist. Will post the results soon. -Steve

Hi all. Been around other forums for a while and I see a lot of familiar names here too. Wanted to expand out to other communities as some others seem to be getting too old fashioned and crotchety. Lol. I mainly build sci-fi and aircraft and occasionally ships.
