Hello
Posted by Anonymous on Monday, November 17, 2003 5:05 PM
This looks to be a great site. I just joined and have only peeked around a little bit. My name is Joe and I come from the Boston area. I am fairly new to the scale modeling hobby, at least seriously anyway. As a kid I always thought more glue did a better job, until I realized that fingerprint development was not the primary concern of a model builder. I have been working off and on (mostly off) on some Corvette models from Revel. A 67 roadster, a 68 roadster and a 58 roadster. I look forward to learning from the experts.

Welcome to the forum Joe. Just remember, even the so called experts can learn a thing or two as well. You never know, you just might have a trick that no one else has thought of.

Looking forward to seeing those corvette's posted on here some day soon.

Cool, I just bought that kit today and can't wait to get home from work and tear the plastic off of it so I can look at the pieces........... I'm currently building the 1964 Fairlaine Thunderbolt.

Sorry guys for changing the topic on someone elses welcoming.....Disapprove
Again, Sorry for being rude!!

hi joe , i'm leon from Arlington, VA I've been this hobby for at least 25 yrs and the one thing that i would like to tell you is:

if you don't like a peticular model anymore, don't throw it away or give away, keep it and use it's parts to create a new model (kitbashing - making one model from two or more other models)

if you build a new model from a kit, don't throw away the spare parts

Liljohn speaketh the truth. Big Smile There's no such thing as having too many spare parts.
