    Thanks for the welcome. I'm from Liverpool in the UK and started making plastic model kits again about 5 years ago. Around 2 years ago I discovered the Tommy's War WW1 figures and moved to busts and other figures from there. I'm no expert, but enjoy what I do. For me it's the ultimate stress relief after work and a good way of avoiding the wife while she's watching soaps. I'm always open to advice and can handle criticism.

    Peedee is a massive help. I'm trying to get to one of his painting groups, but work gets in the way. I'm a member of Merseyside Scale Model Group and he attends there for painting sessions. He's really patient, willing to teach and full of good advice.
