    Greetings everyone. My name's Andrew and I'm a Brit living in Ottawa, Canada. I took a very long break from modelling, but got back into it about 2 years ago. WW2 single engine Allied fighters are my favourite subjects, especially Spitfires. I mostly model in 1/72, but I'm game to try any scale.
    I'm enthusiastic, but ham-fisted, so don't expect competition standard builds :)

    Cheers

    Andrew

    Welcome Andrew, It seems another Runner has found Sanctuary. Poke around, ask questions and post some of your old build. The format is a little different then what you are use to but it's easy once you get the knack of it. The one downfall IMHO is no individual workbench threads. Other then that its really cool here.

    I got to run to my sons baseball game but maybe we can catch up later tonight.

    Cheers...

    No, but my next door neighbour works for CSIS :)
    This doesn't breach operational security, everyone in the neighbourhood knows...

    We've been here a year, after 10 years in Saskatoon- my wife's from Ottawa; we're renovating our house at the moment, so we're staying with the in-laws! :shock:

    Thanks Aaron. I used to work in Abingdon, England. A nice place. They used to make MG sports cars there. What's Abingdon, VA like?
