    Hi guys! I'm a new member. I think this site is really great. I am an avid WWII modeler, usually planes and armor. I am looking forward to learning from and sharing with all of you.

    I tend to gravitate towards any WWII aircraft in 1: scale. I have a gallery at hobbytalk.com in the model section.

    Here is a link to my gallery:

    I will post some pics here when I learn the ins and outs of this forum.

    Nice. Do you use an airbrush, looks like it.

    Yes, I use an airbrush. This is the first batch I have used one on. The Me109 is the first model I have used a double-action airbrush on. The Avenger and Wildcat are modeled after planes that flew from my Dad's CVE.

    The Spitfire was built by my 10-year old son. He hand painted the cammo.

    You fly/flew Ospreys....wow, I just had one go past the house about 2 weeks ago. I had never seen or heard one before. Damn...what a thrill it was just for a moment seeing that dude go by in level flight. And the props holy cow they are huge. Sorry to say I heard him coming a ways off but we have thick air here on the northwest coast. How much power that is, it must feel fantastic.
