    Hi everyone,
    I've just joined . I see some fantastic work on here.
    Hopefully I can pick up tips to improve my own painting.
    Being an older chap, I'm a Humbrol enamel user. I'd really like to get into using acrylics and hopefully can learn a bit on here.
    Cheers. Alex.

    007.JPG Hi all,
    thanks for all the welcoming messages.
    To put you in the picture, although I kept up with all that was happening, I hadn't lifted a brush in 20 years !
    I'm just finishing this Masterbox kit. Feel free to comment.
    As I've said, Humbrol enamel, back then was the most used paint. Now acrylic is in. I'd like to try and get on with that.
    Cheers. Alex.

    Alex that's a nice style you've got going on there !

    I think it will lend itself well to acrylics .

    Welcome to this world of strange people. You must be patient with some I warn you. So do you like motorbikes, rock music, Tiger tanks, Napoleonics? Do you like Cuirassiers?

    Cheers
