    Good evening and greetings to the forum.
    My name is Rafael Garcia, I am Spanish, I am 56 years old and until a couple of years ago I was an active soldier. I've been modeling for more than 40 years but never in figures, that's why after knowing this forum I'm bitten by the bug of leaving both tank and plane hahaha and painting figures.
    I hope to learn a lot from you with you.
    Thanks again for opening the doors of your house to me.
    A sincere and respectful greeting to all from Spain.
    Raphael Garcia.
    My signature as a painter is abnmayrit which means born or son of Madrid.(y)

    Hi Rafael,
    I'll endorse what other posters have said here.
    This forum has a wealth of knowledge and experience that the members are happy to share whenever anyone reaches out.
    I've received a lot of help and support from various great people on here, for sure.
    It's not all deadly serious either. There's a lot of good banter flies around as well.

    Welcome to the Planet, Rafael! What sort of figure subjects interest you? As far as armor and airplanes go, you won't need to leave them behind. Just add figures! I grew up on Monogram and Revell kits here in the US, so I'm used to having a figure or two with models of tanks and airplanes. Most kits today might not include figures, but we can always add some.
    I look forward to seeing your work!

    From Alicante (Spain), thank you all very much for your words of welcome, without knowing you I feel as if we were lifelong friends. I paint in 20 mm, what I am most passionate about are the Napoleonic era, I have not yet painted larger scales because I don't feel qualified yet. I would like to present models in contests but to be valued and learn from my mistakes, for that there is still a long way to go.
    Again a respectful greeting to all.
