Hello
« on: January 29, 2020, 06:31:27 PM »
Just a quick hello from a new member.

I've been modelling since I got back into the hobby in 2001, a mixture of 1/72 and 1/48, WWI and WWII. With a couple of nippers I don't get as much time as I would like, but at the mo I've got a 1/72 Roden F.I and a 1/48 Roden Viper SE on the go which I'll endeavour to post my hamfisted manglings with on here.

Apart from scale modelling, I fly fish, salt water fish and sail during the summer here (which I admit gets in the way of playing with plastic) and am a bit nuts about rugby and cricket. I also play the odd tabletop wargame.

Thanks for having me and looking forward to participating as much as I can,

Tim

Welcome to the forum, Tim.
I like me some Cricket too! Also like tabletop gaming figures, but I don't play the game myself.

You won't find a better bunch of enthusiasts anywhere on the wiry web.
Enjoy!

Not especially Dave but I'm an expat Kiwi who also lived many years in Oz so the love of cricket and rugby run pretty deep with me. I can also even get rather enthused about AFL if the Dees are playing!

Thanks once again for the kind welcome everyone.
