    A quick bio note about me, I staretd building kits over 40 years ago, then dropped out in the mid 1980s for the normal reasons of family and such, and only can back to it last year at teh family's sugestion.

    I'm no expert, I try to do the best i can with my fading eyesight and arthritic hands, but i have a deep love for the hobby and so i muddle along. I also know little about cameras so my pictures could be better!

    Please bear all this in mind!

    Nice work Chris, and an interesting scheme too. I gave up on 1/72 scale when I went back to modelling and choose something a little larger to get to grips with. Well done!

    Cheers

    Thanks peter, i appreciate it.

    I was given a bunch of 1/72 kits that nobody wanted, I prefer 1/48 and 1/32 as its easier for me to see (and you can see my mistakes better too!)

    I didn't like the decals that came with the kit, so i bought a techmod set that had those, they came out pretty well.

    Sometimes i can't even focus to see the details, even wearing my eyeglasses.

    Had perfect vision when i was younger though, so can't complain!

    You'll like it here Chris because most of these guys shy away from the 1/72 and the 1/144 scale stuff. :p Whats this about a bunch of 1/72 scale kits that you're to blind to build? I know someone whos almost blind but not too scared to build them(me) :occasion7:

    Nice work on the P-40. I don't think I saw that one before.

    Now you see why I was pulling for a 'mighty eigth' group build!

    the hasegawas were given to me, i picked up the others here and there in my travels.

    The one I most want to make and am affriad of messing up is that ESCI phantom, it is a sweet old kit that I bought for about 7 bucks on Ebay, god knows how i got it at that price.

    Good job. I feel your pain. I've got about an hour before my eyes start to water and I have to stop. Used to work at it all day. Problem is after almost fifty years of building in 1/72 I don't want to change scale.

    Real men build 1/72nd... well with perhaps some exceptions of members on this site. But they will all have to ask Charon (Boatman of Hell) for permission to cross over for entrance into modelling heaven. :toothy5:
