Hello from Maine

Post by Tckirner » Tue Aug 08, 2017 9:47 am

Just joined. I work mostly in plastic kits. I do have a Mamoli 1/53 scale Golden Hind. I joined, in part, because I am looking for plans for the Golden Hind.
Just finished building plastic models of every plane I flew in while in the Navy. Spent 26 years in the Navy/Naval Reserve and was never on a ship.

Any kind of medium is welcome. I see that we have several that are more into plastic which is great. We need more Resin / Plastic models represented. I also welcome paper of which I have not seen much of. I have seen some paper before that was stunning and hard to imagine how they did it.
