Hi ,
I’m new to here and thank you for allowing me to join. I’ve been a modeller for 40 years and have watched and experienced our hobby/interest/addiction get bigger and better. I’m here to both show my work and to learn from others on here. I look forward to engaging with fellow enthusiasts.
Thank you

    Welcome to Imodeler. I think you will enjoy it here. We all learn from one another and it's a friendly place. I like your armor builds. They look very realistic. I was a "tanker" in the M-60 series and we were just transitioning into the M-1A1 when it got out of the Army. Welcome aboard, and I hope to see more of your work. Happy New Year.

    I made sure to click on the "like" button before I left.

  8. Really nice work, Dave. the models are superb, highly realistic creations, and then they're made even better by your excellent and also highly realistic diorama settings. This is the kind of stuff that keeps me doing airplanes instead of armor dioramas. 🙂
