    Very nice forum you got going here! Which is why I registered. Um, that's about all...

    Okay, a bit about me. I've been interested in things that fly for as long as I can remember. I used to use my pocket money to buy those cool little 3-piece polystyrene planes with the little plastic spinners, and spend hours playing with them... I used to make entire wings of paper aircraft (or spaceships... :oops: )

    These days I'm mostly interested in anything that flies, with a preference for WW2 (I have a pile of model kits I need get around to building one day) piles of books...

    Okay. Enough. So yeah...

    HI! 8)

    Hi Loyal watcher and welcome.:D
    I know exactly what you mean about the pile of models. I have built well over 300 1/72 scale WW2 aircraft and still have a pile around 50. I think they are mating. I don't even remember buying that many ( although I don't remember much at my age anyway.
    But welcome to the sight, and have fun.

    Thanks for the replies guys, really nice welcome.

    @Corsning ... okay, I need to redefine my idea of a lot of models. 350+ total is about 20 times what I have to do. As a plus point, it means I can buy more with a clear conscience :D
