    Looking forward to seeing them! Sadly, all of mine from that era have become landfill. I at one time had about 80 models hanging in my bedroom as a teen but now, at 52, I'm building a new collection up again.

    I am currently working on a fleet of 1/72 birds, but have decided rather than hang them, I'm building them all with landing gear down so that I can display them on a shelf.

    Can't wait to see your collection.

    I was going to when I get a few more made. To be quite honest, after seeing some of the work on here I'm a little hesitant about posting mine.

    I have much much learning to do.

    A few of my models have been posted already, but I am not where near the level I've seen on these forums.

    I don't think that the level should be a problem. How do you want to find out what you should or what can be improved? So don't hesitate please....

    I agree. As the sayings go "We're never too old to learn" and "We learn something new every day" - apart from Jan, who misses out due to being in the pub .... I am now running as fast as this disease will allow !!
