Hi all,

Checking out a new site! I hail from Nova Scotia Canada and have been modeling again since about 2009 when my wife suggested I take up the hobby after abandoning it when I was about 15.

My main interest is 1/48 scale float planes and flying boats, but I do build some other winged birds as well if they catch my attention and are out of the ordinary.

Some of you might have seen these elsewhere, but here are a few examples of my builds,

1/48 Revell PBY


1/48 IMAM Ro 44


1/48 Choroszy Modelbud E6Y1


1/72 Matchbox Do18


1/48 ProModeler P-38


Hope to meet some new people and have some fun here!

Thanks Scott, Jim, Grendels and ECH!

BS1 suggested this site to me. Going to have a look around and will try and post something soon. I'm currently working on 3 builds at the moment but with summer here and me being crazy at work, not sure how much I'll get done until the fall.

ECH, I have been to a few of the shows here in Halifax, mostly at Shearwater, but never entered any of my builds in any. Thanks for the kind words though!

Welcome

Nice builds.
Prop aircraft are not my cup of tea but I do have a soft spot/curisoty for float planes.
I look forward to seeing a WIP on one **hint hint** ;D

Thanks Quaralane and WebbyNZ!

I have an interesting float plane I have in the queue for once I finish the others I have on the go.
I'll see what I can do WebbyNZ!

Well then....I think you should next year. Shearwater in April, and CAMS in Fredericton in May. Both awesome shows!
