Hello to all. I'm currently in lock down so time to get a hobby, so jumping back into model building, haven't done so for 40 years . I have ordered a couple of kits (jump right in with both feet ) gotta start that stash. I have so many questions ( paint glues etc ) all can wait but I also hope to add to this forum. Cheers Tom.

Welcome to the Kitmaker family Tom, always great to see more Aussies joining the crew here!

Don't be shy about posting images of your work and asking questions, the folks here are full of knowledge and really helpful.

What genre are you into?

Cheers, D

Wow, that's cool! Does that make me famous? Or infamous perhaps?

My cunning plan for Chevy domination in the car world is slowly taking shape.

What have you got lined up first? Are you planning a "Barn Find Build" ? I'm having a small scale practice run on a '36 Ford 5-Window Coupe before I tackle the big '57.


The full build log is HERE if you've got some time and a big mug of coffee!

Looking forward to following your progress mate.

Cheers, D
