Hello from Paris and London!
I'm new here, I come from figure painting scratch-builds of warhammer buildings and converting WWII tank to Ork Bigatanka and such.
I'm back working on ships, the last I built was.... 40 years ago, I was a kid of course, but the Yamato I made was quite "clean" and I was so proud. I suffered lasting trauma as it ended up destroyed by my Mom and her vacuum cleaner with the handbrush attachment ("if it can't withstand standard dusting, it's not well built!").
I'm currently working on a s-100 (revell) diorama with all the PE and trimmings. In the cooler are an italeri s-100 and a U-boot VIIC (revell) with the inside room by CMK plus scratch built add ons by yours truly.
I considere I'm currently learning the art and skill for ships (and PE :-c ) so I take my time.
I'm going to annoy the hell out of you with all my questions, be warned
What else can I say...
Oh yeah.... did I mention I'm female? I hesitated a lot before posting this as I always get strange looks from other modellers (especially young ones, don't know why) when I go to conventions “no, I’m not accompanying my husband, he’s the one doing the accompanying, he’s here just to carry the boxes! He’s going to fall asleep soon unless he sees a synthesizer keyboard, so I brought one in my pocket, scratch-built 1:72 for this kind of occasion.”
But I'm sure there are other females here!!
In any case I'm glad to be on board, Cheerio, mateys!
