I live in upstate NY. The closest thing to a modeler's guild we have is a local comic book store filled with Warhammer and Magic the Gathering nerds.



Welcome! How far "upstate"? When I lived in lower Manhattan I considered anything above 14th Street to be upstate.



Why the Capital, of course.

Are you a member of any local model builders or a member of IPMS or AMPS?

We are getting a HobbyLobby just up the street from me soon. Will check it out once its open.

Thanks for the warm welcome, gents! I'll make sure to post all my pics of the Sherman once I'm ready.

Welcome SCAR,

Thanks for the brief intro and willingness to eventually post your builds. Are you a member of any local model builders or a member of IPMS or AMPS? Joining either one (AMPS if you are on on an armor run) can expand your network of friends and lead to finding great tips and techniques.

Cheers!

Howdy folks! I'm not new to modeling, just to the KitMaker forums. I've been modeling on and off since I was in my early teens and am now in my thirties. I first started with cars and now do mostly armor and occasionally aircraft.

At first I painted my models with brushes but now got myself an air compressor and two quality airbrushes from Badger and Iwata. I'm still learning techniques with my airbrushes but I got the general idea.

Right now I'm working on a M4A3E8 Sherman from Tamiya and will post some pics once I'm done in the appropriate forum.

Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself. Happy modeling!
