    Hi there, another newbie signing in !!
    I'm a another 40-something born-again modeler after my wife signed me up to the Airfix club and I recived their 1.48 Spit. Then realised I had another in the loft ( Hasegawa Mk Vb ) and an Airfix Lanc, so it looks like I've got enough to keep me quiet for a while !! I found this site while doing some research, and it seems perfect!!
    I'm into Military Aircraft of all periods, though WWII seems to be a fave.

    I live in the flatlands of the Fens, UK so get to see my fair share of military types overhead and I'm lucky enough not to be far from Duxford musuem.

    I also enjoy throwing spanners at perfectly usable cars until they don't work anymore, motorsport, music, films and the produce of Mr.J Daniels, but only when there isn't something in the house to fix, or one of my small people to transport somewhere !!
    Cheers, Neil

    Welcome to the forums here Neil, if you haven't found them already be sure and check out the "Technical" section and all the manuals folks have posted there...thats a cool resource.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, chaps......
    Lucky13...no, but I'd have probably married her as well if she did !!
    Airframes....yes, I have been known to play with the odd Mini ( roundnose and flat ) - I've got a 1380 lightweight project lurking in the garage that I will finish one day.....honest !

    Cheers, Neil

    Ha, wife involvement, excellent. Welcome aboard mate. look forward to seeing the Aiirfix Spit - is it the one that comes in black with "bling" gold spinner or alternatively the silver/red 41 squadron racing livery?

    Conkerking - yes, that the one. I'll probably do it in the black scheme. It's nice simple and a bit different. Having said that, the 1/72 FAA set has just arrived, so I may ease myself in with those first.
    Cheers, Neil

    Hi Neil

    I got the 1/72 FAA when I signed up for the Airifix Club, but I only did the Seafire... the stringbag went on ebay and my lad has nicked the Hellcat and turned it into a blue and yellow stunt plane. I have the decals to do the black XVI Spit in 1/72 Heller kit... the red/silver 41 squadron racer I have two 1/72 options, the Fujimi Mk XIV "Kings Cup" kit and just managed to track down the Aeroteam Spit 21 kit which is apparently more authentic, historically speaking. I'll get round to them eventually, only been specialising on Spits a few months but the stash is already a bit ridiculous :rolleyes:

    Look forward to seeing your models, great bunch of guys (and a few gals) on this forum you'll find!
