Welcome Aboard !

What photos are you wanting to post ?
There is no " completed builds " section so everything goes into the appropriate category in the " works in progress " section .

Yep,i`ve had a look around and realised that there`s no "Completed" section.It`s not important,i was just going to put some of my recent stuff up as Pantherman was curious.I`ve now just put my current build up,so that`s all good:cool: .

Welcome Andy. I am a relative new comer myself and this is the only model forum I now look at. I am an Aussie and live in semi retirement on the mid north coast of NSW. It's a hard life but some of us have to do it. This forum seems a lot friendlier than most with few, if any, nit pickers. I too am an armour modeller with a preference for WW2 pieces although I am starting to lean towards doing a WW1 small dio. Look forward to seeing your work.

Glad to meet you. Like so many of us, I have recently got back into the hobby.
My build preference was aircraft but lately I have gotten into armor and figures and having a blast.
I look forward to seeing your work!

I don't know about that Andy, Devon looks nice to me on pictures anyway. Where I am there is a lot of sand, sun, beautiful weather, deadly brown snakes and great white sharks. I guess that is about it for the good points.....

If deadly snakes and sharks are the good points I hate to imagine what the bad ones are!!

Tourists....by the bloody thousands.....Oh yeah and the nearest model shop being 174Km's away. Thank god for on line shopping.
Wow! 174km away?!? And I thought 23 miles (37km) away was too far for a dedicated model shop, like G&G Model Shop, which is near the Houston Zoo.

We have crafting stores nearby (Hobby Lobby and Michael's) Which are neighborhood type craft stores. Thier model sections are sparse.
So like you I'm glad for online shopping.

You said G&G and my heart started racing; I thought you meant the shop up in Northwest Indiana.
