Scale Modeller (Air,Land and Sea), re-kindling an interest in figures

    Hi all,
    I'm a fairly experienced scale modeller in Aircraft, AFV and Warships. Anyone familiar with Britmodeller, can find me there (extensively) with the same handle!
    During a recent sort through of quite a huge stash, I came across some old figures (kits and casting) that originate from many years back and which has re-ignited some interest in having a go at some of these again. Surprised to find five unmade Historex mounted figures, some resin WWII Verlinden, various white metal 54mm subjects (WWII, Napoleonic and more ancient) plus a 120mm, a 100mm and a 75mm figure, so plenty of choice! When I've finished off a couple of existing aircraft build projects, I plan to start on a figure ..... or maybe two!
    I live in deepest Dorset, and am a member of both Poole Vikings and Poole Scale Modelers, so likely know one or two of you folks.
    I'll post something as soon as I can muster up some courage to do so!

    Thanks Paul, flattery will get you everywhere!

    Thanks Nap, lots of helpful pointers and I will definately be seeking lots of advice and guidance from you and everyone here! I'm sure we have met before, and reckon we will for sure this year as the shows start to open up.

    Thank you Steve!

    I'm busy having a good look around here, and also contemplating which of the figures I have "in stock" to start with. Napoleonics have always been a favourite, as well as British Army pre 1900's, plus most nationalities WWII.

    Thanks again each.

    Welcome to the Planet, Terry! There are several of us here who are also scale modelers, too, including me. I grew up on Monogram and Revell (pre-merger), and Airfix, and other classic makers. It was the kit figures that gave me exposure to painting figures. I look forward to seeing your work, whether figures or ordnance!
