Hello to All
My name is Phil, I'm 47 and a construction site manager. I hail from Liverpool, though I spend most weekends in my beloved Wales, where I do a lot of walking. I collect and play with toy steam engines, so burnt fingers are pretty normal for me.
I've made model kits all of my life (off and on) but I must admit that I haven't made anything in a few years (life eh?). Unfortunately, and with the best of intentions, I've become something of a kit hoarder.
My main modelling interests have always been aircraft, and figures, and it's fair to say that I generally enjoy the painting and finishing work, rather than the actual construction.
I'm thinking of climbing back into the saddle, and so, I've been exploring this forum for inspiration. My thought is that a path less well trodden, from my point of view, might get the juices flowing, so boats, cars, tanks, sci fi etc.
Happily, I can see that there is masses of inspiration here, some really fantastic work on display.
Also, I've followed a few of the threads, and I'm pleased to see what a friendly, supportive group this is.
Looking forward to future posts.
Welcome Phil, you are quite right this is a friendly group and no mistake. You won't get negative or unconstructive comments here, just good honest advise.
Any questions no matter how mundane you might feel they are, fire away and the answer will swiftly follow.....
Glad you like walking in Wales, snap! 45mins sees me walking in Snowdonia.
Enjoy your time here.
If it wasn't for Thomas Edison, we would all be watching T.V. in the dark!
