Hey Everybody!

Postby Bfam4t6 » Sun Dec 22, 2019 5:44 pm

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for accepting me into your community. I'm very excited to get back into model building and be able to share and learn from a like-minded group of people.

My name is Dustin. I started building plastic models at the age of 3, moved on to building paper models (Halinski, GPM, etc) at around the age of 10, and pretty much stopped all model building at the beginning of college, over 10 years ago. I built mostly 1/33 scale aircraft. I've also always been a gear head, and became aware of and starting looking into large scale Pocher kits this past year. They seem great, but I worry that some of the older ones I really admire require a little too much painting and gluing. I had never heard of part work models until about a month ago. I now live in a small apartment in a big city, so the prospect of being able to build impressive, detailed models that do not require painting and airbrushing seems perfect for my current living situation. I'll add extra details here and there, but I really don't want to set up a full painting station in my apt.

So far I've started two subscriptions, one for the 1/8 Jaguar E-type and one for the 1/8 Porsche 2.7 RS, and can't wait to start receiving parts. I wish I had known about the new Agora Shelby offering before I signed up for the Porsche, as I think I would have chosen it instead. And thanks to browsing this forum, I have also become aware of some Centauria Ferrari Kits that I would die to get my hands on. I don't know if anyone has worked out a system to get these Italian subscriptions to the US, but if so, I would love to learn how!

I look forward to chatting and sharing ideas and skills with you all. Hopefully my first issues arrive soon so that I can start some build threads. Until then, thanks again for accepting me into your community, and Happy Holidays!
-Dustin

Eh, I probably shouldn't do the Snake, but history says I'm known for doing things I shouldn't do :D We'll see how the next month goes.

And no, I haven't seen Mustang's Ferrari build yet. The one that caught my attention was Betto's
viewtopic.php?f=191&t=8809

You have a link for Mustang's? I'd love to check it out.

Mustang's Testerossa is here. viewtopic.php?f=39&t=8356

It's a real beaut. Mustang's doing a fabulous job bringing an old Pocher to life.
Cheers
