Howdy all


Recommended Posts

I feel a bit silly, but I'm finally introducing myself after joining back in 2013.  My name is Rob, and I have been modeling since I was about 10 years old (43 years give or take).  Nothing special, but I have done figures, tanks and sailing ships.  I am currently building a 1966 version of the Mayflower (which holds up extremely well after all these years).  I will post some photos, but my progress is slow (especially now that summer is coming and I have a lot of property to mow). 


I have read a lot, learning a lot and viewed a lot, and I can say that I have seen a lot of real talent and innovation in this sight.  You guys and gals are really good at it!!


Look forward to a lot more learning and enjoying.

Welcome aboard Rob,


It doesn't matter that your progress is slow. Modelling is all about patience, not about speed.

Is your Mayflower made of wood or plastic?

Looking forward to your photos.


I wish you smooth sailing and happy modelling.

Welcome to MSW Rob! Glad you have decided to join in more directly. You will get even more out of the site that way with good companionship and answers to those questions that arise. Good luck to you and I look forward to seeing your Mayflower!

Geez, thanks everyone!  I am already feeling at home here.  Anja - the model is plastic, made in 1966.  It was on sale on ebay years ago, and I just bought it (I think for less than $20).  Yeah, slow is how I am moving these days.  Again, thanks everyone for such a warm welcome.
