    I’m going to try to re-enter the hobby after a long absence with this little kit that’s been in my stash for decades. It’s a cheap kit, not very high quality, but it will allow my to get my tools together and hopefully hone my ability to make a model! I will post some photos of my progress but not every little detail.

    That photo with the beach behind you looks just like Flager (not too far from where I am).
    Then again, it could just as easily be in North Carolina for all I know. 🙁

    Not NC, not Flagler, ( at least not this time), it’s Crescent beach. My wife and I go up and down the coastline quite a bit. This trip was to St Augustine, a lovely destination. I love the beaches of Florida!

    I am taking a long time getting back into the hobby, probably for many reasons. I am frustrated with painting my model because most paint jobs involve many steps; primer, color coat(s), weathering, sealer/gloss coat prior to decalling, and then a final sealer coat in either gloss or matte finish after decals. I am starting to conclude that in my favorite scale of 1/144, all this paint only ends up obscuring detail such as panel lines, rivet detail, etc. Is the only solution to use an airbrush? It must be! I’m using Model Master spray cans and have even tried warming the can in hot water first! I just don’t know how to proceed! Brush painting is not smooth enough, and spray cans just spray out way too much paint, in a pattern that is way too big and wide! I think I’m going to have to break out my airbrush, and try getting better results before I move on to some of my more expensive kits!! Anyone else have these concerns?
