I had been over on ukairshowreview modelling forum but it was fairly dead .
One of the members there pointed me in this direction.
I have been making one or two aircraft kits over the last few years.
I made loads badly when was I was a kid, and then after 20odd years not building I decided to make a few.
Now I'm trying to learn new skills, but each time I make a new model I try a technique and it ends in tears
But I'm enjoying it all the same, I now have a pile of built models and very little space .
And yeah the talent or lack there of is reflected in my name choice .
Sometimes when I'm sanding something I need to refill it after , I just have no finesse and I am liable to go "f#%k it, it'll do"
Welcome to ISM Steve! Yep, you'll fit in nicely here if you're looking for a chilled out place to chat about models etc. Good bunch of lads on here and very knowledgeable too so fire away with any questions you may have.
Keep making those mistakes, it's all about learning from them... and being able to fix them! I'd save none of us gets through a project without some cock-up but experimenting, trial and error, and asking for help, will give you the skills to recover from it.
What kind of aircraft do you like to build?
I will post up some builds photos later.
But I also have a soft spot for old matchbox models too.
As they create a lot of nice nostalgia vibes for me.
Currently my modelling takes place on a knee high coffee table with rattle cans and Hairy stick for painting.
I have only just started using varnish and weathering washes.
And that's going not so good mainly due to the process and cleaning inbetween coats etc .
I was me that gave you the tip. Welcome aboard ol Stock and lets hope we can get those problems sorted out for you here. Theres a fair few experts here that hopefully can assist.
I find with the different fluids we used now I get some horrors from time to time but then I find out I was applying them wrong or such so fingers crossed.
