Hi , Everyone,:D
Just wanted to introduce myself.
I first started building kits in the early 50`s ( the days of balsa wood ,plan & sandpaper).
After a long spell bringing up a family I decided to return to my hobby.
My main interests are WW2 afv`s+ diorama, mainly 1.35th scale. Although I have completed a 1/16th Tiger 1 from 30+ monthly issues by Hatchette Partworks which I consider my best build to date. :violin:
I have now purchased the Citroen traction Avant 15 six . 1/8th scale which I am looking forward to building. However,I feel that I will need to call on the expertise of my fellow modellers as this is a big leap for me in scale and experience. :?: :idea:
John
