Hello from Toronto
« on: November 24, 2017, 02:01:42 PM »
I’ve been lurking for a while. I’m returning to modelling after a 10 year gap. I used to build in 1/72 and mainly wwi... now the mark 4 eyeballs don’t seem to be quite up to 1/72 and I’ve seen some of the newer 1/48th and 1/32 scale models so i’ve been drawn back lol... Compared to even 10 years ago, I think we are living in a golden age for wwi aircraft.

Currently building a special hobby 1/32 scale Nieuport 11 it will be one of Jean Navarre’s Verdun aircraft...  It’s a nice simple model. Could do with a few location pins at least for the lower wing.  But nothing brass rod won’t fix..

This site and forum are a really great resource ;)
Probably back to lurk for me..

Thanks for the warm welcome. I’m sure I’ll post a bit about the adventure with the Bébé....or that could be titled does the Nieuport survive my ham handiness
