Another new old guy from SW MO
Posted by Uncle Billiam on Monday, April 01, 2019 3:29 PM

So I've started back into models after an 30 yr hiatus. I've done car, aircraft, space, figurene and sci -fi. I really love the access to info now available now due to the internet, and sites like this forum. I've already built 4 vehicles and one sci-fi since getting back with plastics. I want to thank you all for the info and help and I hope I can do some assisting in the future.

Welcome to the forum, Bill, and welcome back to the hobby. A lot has happened in the hobby in the last 30 years. It's exciting but sometimes a bit overwhelming. If you have any questions, just find the proper part of the forum and ask away. Enjoy.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

Welcome Billiam. I'm sorta like you... in and out of the hobby over the decades. Have several car kits going and making room in my garage to do some more dioramas. Love to see some photos of your builds here.

here's a link of all the items I've worked on in the past year. As you will see I also work with minatures for Role Playing Games.

Welcome. I checked out the pics from your link. Nice work.

Welcome Uncle Billiam, Look forward to any input you might have. Yes, things might be different these days but sometimes old styles and tricks does wonders for new molders like myself. Later!
