Not sure if any of you will remember me I was really active on the groups, doing reviews/features and running build campaigns (and was an admin) on the Kitmaker Network for several years. I had a bit of an enforced stop to building when I became pregnant in 2015 and the smell from everything made me really ill. Had our son in 2016 and its just been hetic since (in a good way)
After not being anywhere near a bench or modelling for the last 4 years decided to open this and give it another whirl. Tamiya 1/72 P47 Razorback which will be finished as Damons Demon thanks to a set of Barracuda decals
Currently I have only spent about 4 hours working on it and doesn't look like Ive forgotten much (well apart from where the paintbrushes were tucked away)

Welcome back. Good luck on finding modeling time. The little ones can be quite the handful at times.

Thanks Mark, might have to just accept only doing 10mins here and there but better than none

Welcome back! Looks like you haven't lost your touch at all. There will be a lot to balance but it can work out fine. I was just thinking this past week about when my dad spent time building with me, and when I was building with my kids, so there will be lots of fun things to do in the future.

Welcome back, Sam! And yes, I remember some of your post here at Aeroscale. Good luck for your build and happy modelling, it will be an easy one. I have built the bigger brother of it some years ago.

Sam,
It's good to see you back. You have 31 campaign ribbons, you were very busy on this site. Looking forward to the Thunderbolt build. Did you use kit decals for the harness?
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

It is the kit seatbelt decal I used, given the scale its looks good, I know when I did the 1/48 one a few years ago I used the Eduard seatharness for it.
