Hi There,

I have been building models since I was 11 years old.
Still remembering that first build darkblue coloured spitfire completely covered with glue!
Nowadays, after a break of some years, I continue building AFV models and I can tell you it is still big FUN
I hope you all share the same experience.
It is fun being at the ARMORAMA , nice people sharing their knowledge with others.

Keep on building.

Nice to meet you! It sounds like our origins in the hobby are pretty similar. I built my first kit when I was in the third grade. It was a Lindbergh P-47 molded in some ghastly blue plastic that wound up with an elaborate (and unplanned) fingerprint camoflage pattern. #:-)
I'll see you around!

Hiya Patman,

Great to meet you!
I see alot of similarity in your modeling history. I too was 11 when i built my first kit. I remember it well........a 1/144 Me109 by Revell. I still have that kit in a display case in my bedroom
