    Hello everyone, great forum, too much info to even begin to mull over. Like many of you I am a long-time modeler who has been in and out of the hobby for years, though I have always been messing with something as long as it had an engine or wheels. For the last 10 years or so I have been building and customizing small scale fire apparatus and working with resin.

    I have always been fascinated with WWII Bombers. I know I built a few when I was a teenager but 30 years later my skills are much better and Its time I do up a nice B17F or G, and maybe even a 24. So please forgive me if I ask what may seem like repetitive questions. Looking forward to making atleast a few friends, and possibly picking up some tips of the trade from anyone willing to give it.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Chris!

    Welcome to the forum from the Underside. Are you Irish???? Like O'Zinzki? Or O'Omernik??? Just making sport, my first wifes relatives were from there.

    No question ever needs forgiving. Learned That a long time ago.

    You do need to post some of what you have done. Make up a thread of "my collection". Being from the north of Wiss, I know you would have plenty of snow time for building.
