Allright! Off to the hobby shop today, because unlike you boys, I don't have billions of models stuck in every nook and cranny in the home. There's no room because Slug shoves his military figures in those places! Even the bathroom. Which causes lively discussion when the ladies come over for bunco...

Let's see, no tanks...don't want to wrestle with tracks

Planes...been there, done that

Ships?
Vehicles?

This will be fun! I'll see what catches my fancy.

Right, I'm in!!! So as I understand this can be your favourite subject. I'm going to have to see if I can find a Hurricane IID, preferably 1/48 or bigger, the old eyes aren't what they once were!!!

Hm... sitting here during the quiet time at work thinkin' about it. I'm lost. What to build man? Something 1/35 and Canadian I think... Or the B-58 I want to build for an IPMS show (my first - be brave little one)... Or an Avro Arrow... Or a 1/72 Panther that I have a hoard of aftermarket gear for... Argh... maybe I'll have a poll.

You've mentioned canadian models twice now, Duncan. I think you should go that direction. Besides, I'd love to see it progress from start to finish.

Okay, we've just returned from the modeling shop. We went to two that are nearby. Made friends with a nice man that invited us to the IPMS club meeting. He has tables set up at his shop, and folks can come in and work on their models whenever. He gives help, lessons, and it seems, good advice. The IPMS national convention is in Anaheim this year, just down the road from us, it might be fun to visit.

I am drawn to weird shaped things, so I bought a gun tractor and a DAK Kublewagen.
I couldn't decide which to build. Mike and Brendan both picked the Kublewagen, so that's what I'll construct for our summer build.

Isn't it great when you find a model dealer who is helpful, friendly and supportive. There are three big shops in the city here and all three are staffed by arrogant creeps who think if you can't name the differences between a Panzer IV Ausf. D and an Ausf. E, you've got no business in their shop. Creeps.
The guy in my local shop is great. He has a small shop with limited choice but I'd rather give him my business. His attempts at humour everytime I go there are a little lame but I bless him for trying.
Great stuff Dolley. I feel you have the makings of a good modeller. There's nothing wrong with your workpersonship. Sometimes it's just a matter of being aware of what products are out there that can help you achieve what you want or even finding a ridiculously simple technique that will help. I found that recently, finding and learning a few little things really helped me and elevated my results just a little. My Mig 15 from the first build was my first try with some new ideas and products and it's my best work so far.
Good luck.

I think Slug is going to build the first hot air balloon by the Montgolfier brothers. But he is also contemplating the robot from Forbidden Planet. I don't know the scale, they're packed in the garage somewhere where they may never be found...

My favourite topics are Canadian and unusual service markings. Even though I have not built many, I am attracted to unusual nationalities. For example, I have a large collection of Russian lend lease decals, German armour in Russian service, a Portugese Spitfire, a German KV, a Canadian Grizzly captured by Serbian forces, etc...

So, I am going to build this F-5E Tiger II. It will not be American. I'm going to start a poll to choose the markings.

You should do a Navy "Red Air" F-5. We have a small section of Tigers that are visiting, done up in soviet camo with "NAVY" along the side.
