Hi all, Books/Liam here. I've not built models in about 16 years (dear god..), but recently I've felt an itch for a creative hobby of some kind. I've been reading a lot about the Vietnam War in the last couple of months, so what better place to start than an F-4D? It's on its way from eBay, but in the meantime I've been browsing through the forums and suffice to say I think I've got a LOT to learn!

Look forward to seeing ya'll around

Welcome to the network Liam. It is always good to see a person being drawn back to the hobby, must be the paint and glue. The Phantom is a popular subject and I am sure you will be able to get the help you need on Aeroscale site, they all come under the KitMaker umbrella and you can sign in to all with the same user and password details. I hope you feel at home and have fun as you learn new techniques.

Hi Liam,
Welcome on board, I hope you have fun, just FYI if your interested there is a modelling Club in Adelaide, called Sapma, if you speak to Craig at Aeroworxs model shop he should be able to help you contact them.

Cheers Mike
