    Hey Gang,

    I joined this site while back but finally starting to get chance to post and introduce myself. My names Mike Bhangu and I am from North Cali. I mostly build aviation related stuff but lately I notice myself purchasing more mixed stuff...ie; armor, ships, sc-fi, etc. I have several WW2 aircrafts in stash that will be getting build. I just bought the new P-61 in 1/32 and I know I'll be adding B-17 something next year. Most of my stuff is in 1/32 (my prefer scale), but I have few in 1/48 (B-24, B-17, PBY). Oh, I just purchased a book on Assembly Ship, so a lot of weird scheme aircraft will be coming of the assembley line here 8)

    Anyway, looking to chat with you all. Take care and happy modeling.

    Mike

    By Northern CA do you mean above Sac?

    Welcome to the forum from a CA expat living in Oz.
    Now you gotta post some pictures of your builds!

    Welcome from Northern England which, apart from being Northern, is nothing like California !

    I'm in Scotland, which is even more northern, than northern England and being a Swede, I'm even more northern than that....

    Enjoy the ride, because it's bound to be a wild one!!



    Ok, who's round is it!



    Oh, right.....almost forgot, welcome to the madhouse!

    Welcome from true Northern California...no beaches, over-crowded cities or Hollywood BS here...just mountains, lakes and rivers with small towns here there.

    Hardly mon ami, we have quite a stretch of oggin between gods chosen city,Plymouth and la belle France... well, Brittany anyway.

    We always say to people who complain about Plymouth 'get on a Megabus to Leeds / Bradford and you'll be praying to come home' :)
