    Hey Guys,


    I'm Tom (TJ) and I'm from the sunny SouthEast of the USA.

    I've mostly been an AFV modeler for the last 15 years or so and been a member of some of the online armor sites. But I was lurking here trying to pick up some ideas for finishing my figures.

    However, in the last few years I've become interested in customizing figures and sculpting my own. A few people like it but in general that doesn't get much interest with the other groups. Obviously that is the focus here so here I am...

    There some fabulous work been shown on PF and I'm looking forward to learn and develop my work.


    Thanks
    TJ

    Welcome to the Planet, Tom! I congratulate you for taking the path to do more with figures. I grew up on Monogram kits, both the armor and the aircraft, and for me, a kit wasn't complete without a figure or two. If I were looking for tips on converting and sculpting, I'd start with the master-Shep Paine, and his book on figures, or even just the overview in the "Tips on Building Dioramas" sheets. A good, solid base from which to start.

    I look forward to seeing your builds-ordnance as well as figures!

    Prost!
