    Hi my name is Jim and I recently after a 20 plus year hiatus came back into the hobby of making scale models. I have noticed a few changes since building models then to now and am very excited that I came back. I have always had a passion for WW2 aircraft and that's where my focus will be which leads me to joining this forum. Hopefully I will not only learn many tricks and tips but will contribute as much as I can to this community, and before I forget I did play the online ww2 flight sims Air warrior 3 and Fighter ace until they went under just in case there are any former players of those sims in this community and that's it thanks for having me.

    Looking forward to seeing your stuff, we have a new Group Build starting on Nov.1st. It is the 1914-1939 build, (that covers a lot of ground), so if you have something that would work, we would love to have you join in! Have a look around, and as Aaron said, the Asylum welcomes you!

    Welcome from another with dual flags from down unda.
    There are plenty of us who had been away from this hobby for many years.
    You truly are in good demented company.
