    Hey, Everyone! My name is Justin. I am new here, and look forward to reading, and learning all of the massive amounts of information here, and getting to know everyone! I love Model building. I am more into naval vessels, but love to put together aircraft also. I was so excited to find this site. I have been looking for a site like this!

    I have loved World War 2 history since I was just a young boy. Mainly because my Grandfather was a Fighter pilot. He was part of the 40th FS/35th FG/5th Airforce. He started out in P-39 Aircobras, and later moved into the P-47 "JUG" Thunderbolt. He was stationed in New Guinea from early 1942 - late '44.

    Anyways, just thought I would stop by, and introduce myself. :)

    Hello again everyone! Thank you all for the welcoming! :D I do plan to show some of my modeling eventually, but I have to warn you, it is nowhere near the quality of all your fine models, that I have viewed so far on here! There are some amazing model builds in the gallery! Very impressive. I have yet to attempt any weathering of my kits. Never have really known how to do it. :( I hope you all can show me the art of weathering, so that eventually I can make my models look as some of yours! :)

    I do have some photos of my grandfather, but will have to get them scanned first. Also I have some stories that he shared with me. Is this the proper place to post them? Or is there a thread for such stories? Again I thank you all for your warm welcome, and look forward to sharing and hearing many stories from you all! :D
