    Hey fellas, I just found this site when googling info on a kit. I like the looks of things here so I decided to join. I am a long time modeler who has been frequenting "other" modeling sites for years and I am always looking for new places to exchange ideas with like minded folks. I can't wait to jump right in.... BTW, is there a way to upload a custom avatar? I tried the suggested methods but found that my only options are to not have an avatar or pick a preloaded one. Anyway I hope to learn some things here and maybe I can help others as well.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Do you mean the avatar or siggy? If you want to set your avatar ( the small picture at the right top corner of your post ) go to your personal settings. There you will find the proper option. The size of the pic must be of 100x100 pixels in maximum.

    Oh sorry... welcome to the site.

    Welcome from England. Please deposit your stash of bacon with Jan at reception .... you'll find him under the reception desk. And by the way, he only understands Swettish. English, and other languages, make little sense to him.

    Leaving Jan and Bacon tête-à-tête is something like allowing a fox to move into a chickenhouse. :lol:

    Welcome aboard.

    Hmmm though, modeling site? Not sure if I like the perception that this is first a modeling site, and 2nd a historical research site. Hmmm...

    I agree. It happens to be a place with many very knowledgeable members, some being pilots or aircrew, active or retired, and some of whom also happen to be modellers, as an extension to their aviation interests.

    Hmm, Joe eh? Sounds like an alias, we need to be wary. We need to assign some to keep tabs on this one.
