Hello Guys

Well - I have to make my first post here, and introduce me, so I will do so.
Just got back to the hobby after a 12 years break, and gosh a lot has happened since then.
There are so many "new"(for me) kits and manufactors out there, new technics with new products and a whole new world of acrylic paint.

When I started building armor again, I was sure i should usemy 100+ tins of Humbrol enamel, that was in my attic.

But soon I started to see the benefits off the acrylic paint. So I bought a new airbrush, a spraybooth and some basic Vallejo colours.
Now I can have my airbrush right next to my building table - without a big fan to take away the fumes - without having to spend an hour cleaning the airbrush, and the best part, it dries so fast

However, it is not all sunshine, I have a lot to learn, and relearn, but I love it.

Rigth now I am working on a couple of old (inexpensive) sets, to learn all the new stuff.
Some off them are really bad, like the Omega K Ural 4320 Truck, but I just build the out of the box, well sort off, and then use them to get used to acrylic paint, preshading, wash over gloss coat and a lot more.

So - You guys will probably get a lot questions from me about my new modelling world.

Talk to you soon.

Peter
