Hello from Argentina
Posted by FJSigma on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 5:18 PM

Hi to everyone.

I've been looking around this site (and Fine Scale Modeller) for a time now, but never posted. I started building small planes as a kid with my father, then started to buy and build my own 1:72 airplanes. Then I decided I wanted to build 1:25 cars, bought a few models based on price and availability mostly (before the 90s there was not much options here and Internet was a dream). Started to build a few cars at the same time and got stuck in shell painting because I never had an airbrush and spray cans were also hard to find here. Then I started university, knew my wife, got engaged, married, moved to a small appartement, kids, work (some of you know what I'm talking about) and the hobby got boxed for about 30 years.

A couple of years ago I had to let my 1:1 project go for monetary reasons, started to unbox what was left from when I was young and continued the build from there. I never posted here because I didn't know if I would be able to finish a model, but now I've done with my first. It took me 30 years... but I'm glad it's done.

I'm happy to be here reading what you do.

Welcome to the forum FJ, and welcome back to the hobby. Your story is very familiar to many of us. I had a break of over 20 years, but been back at it for over 15 years, now. Enjoy.
