Greetings to all from South Eastern Australia. Wasn't sure where else to post this...I can't see a 'New Members' area...may need new glasses.

I'm a 44 year old father of two and I've been modelling for about 37 years now. Mostly aircraft but lately a few vehicles and even some sci-fi just for a change. My usual has been Second World War but I've been known to get stuck into a Cold-War jet of two and now, with the advent of 'Wingnut Wings' from New Zealand I'm dabbling with the WW1 aviation too. I like to build 1/48 or 1/32 aircraft because there's space to add this and that and for armour I'm strictly 1/35.

I've been looking around the site here for just a short while and I've seen some staggeringly beautiful work by the membership. I look forward to learning from everybody and maybe even getting to know a few too. Thanks for a great site, I hope I can make a worthy contribution. Best wishes to all.






Some of mine.

Thanks for the welcome and compliments Soarin'.

Some say the armour weathering is a bit much, the thinking being that they didn't survive long enough to get so beaten up but that doesn't worry me.

I basically model simply to weather...painting and weathering is easily my favourite bit. I have a couple of other finished models at present but Photobucket seems to have 'lost' my pics.

Thanks again.

Righto...consider all drinks bought or at least put on my tab.

Thanks for the warm welcome lads. Be back later with a few more pics and some shots of my current project which I'm busting to finish before the year ends. I'm a very slow modeller...some say a 'dilletante'. Cheers.

:D, Welcome to the madhouse Geek44. I think I'd like to try a Bluetongue. Never had anything from a boutique brewery before. I was in Victoria this last weekend visiting damo. I took no kits with me but added 6 to the stash while I was down there.
