Hi Dobbber. Your name sounds familiar. Welcome aboard!:wave: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.
Hello from Greely Ontario Canada...long time modeller of mostly cars, but some air, space and water crafts to my name and in the build queue including the TOS 1/350 Enterprise, 1/144 Saturn V and a 1/48 B-17G. Hope to use a lot of the reference, tips and tricks available here in all three of these builds!
Hey folks, I already introduced myself over in the general modeling forum but wanted to also do likewise here, since my primary interest is in sci-fi and fantasy modeling. I'm highly inspired by both 1/350th scale iterations of the "Big E" (both TOS and refit versions) I've seen members here do. Very nice builds! I'm coming out of a 20+ year hiatus from scale modeling...how long? I'll put it this way...last time I was building spaceships incandescent wheat-grain bulbs were the way to go. Not a single LED to be found!:lol:
I purchased a PL 1/350 refit Enterprise just over a year ago; it's been languishing on the closet shelf while I've decided just how to tackle it, so please bear with me if I ask some n00bish questions! But I think that the wisest thing to do would be to get back into it by building a few simpler models first (I have some unboxed kits, Ertl/AMT Excelsior, Enterprise B, Reliant and a couple of Macross fighters). I'm also designing a DIY spraybooth...Iwata airbrush and compressor is already on my Xmas list. :thumbsup:
Hi everyone! Welcome and remember to post lots of pics!I also recently said hello over in the general welcome room, but thought I say hello here too, since, like Guns, my main interest is Star Trek modeling - though not exclusively. Right now I'm working on the Bridge model - I have both the original and first reissue. I'm building from the reissue and have borrowed a couple of crewmember parts from the original kit and did some sculpting work on the heads and insignia to come up with a Dr. McCoy and Scotty to add to the Bridge.
We like seeing great works, and we all share here. No question is stupid (though some might elicit a chuckle); we were all beginners once, and we're all still learning. Welcome!It's actually pretty amazing that there are so many people willing to share their experiences and advice on these sort of things.
