Hello from Lake Michigan coast...

Recommended Posts

I'm new to model builds ...senior citizen ...live near South Haven, Michigan ...member of the Michigan Maritime Museum because I like their programs. So, when I found this site through "Friends Good Will" search, I found Mark Krug's post. Even though it's WAY beyond my skill level, I'm "following" 🙂 ...have so much "basic" stuff to learn. Thanks for having newbie categories.

 Sally, welcome. Grass Lake here, between Jackson and Ann Arbor. There are more jaw dropping artist here than you can shake a stick at but they're friendly folk and willing to answer any question asked. Don't, I repeat don't feel intimidated, everyone starts on the bottom rung. Strolling through the build logs is a great pastime in and of itself, finding your niche and joining in will add that much more to your Model Ship World experience......Keith
