New here...re-entering the hobby...seeking sage advice

Recommended Posts

First, let me say, I appreciate the fact this magnificent forum exists. A lot has changed in the world of information since I began my modeling journey 50+ years ago. I've taken a 20-year hiatus from the hobby (as life priorities mandated), but I'm anxious to re-enter the hobby.


I'll post a proper build thread, but I though the obligatory introduction was the correct way to start.


I look forward to reading through the archives and seeking knowledge. As with other new members, I appreciate your patience.

Hello Bryan and welcome aboard,


Life priorites, I think we can all relate to that. Life always has a way to rearrange your life.


There are a lot of people here who are willing to help and advise and answer any questions you might have. 

We are all here to help and encourage each other.


I wish you smooth sailing with our gallant crew.








Those we loved but lost are no longer where they were, but are always where we are.

Hi Bryan,


Welcome to MSW.  Life sometimes gets in the way.  I think we've all been there.   I'm looking forward to seeing your log.
