Hi Guys, new guy here. I have been lurking here for a long time, but now my allegiance to 1:144 seems to thicken and I felt it was time to join up. I (scratch)built 1:700 warships for a long time, even dabbling as a garage manufacturer for one long summer. Used to hang out at modelwarships.com, still do.

Since about three years I've delved into 1:144, first starting on the kits I used to build as a kid in the 80ies: a Crown B-17, Revell's Lancaster (or its issue). Discovered that here as well was an unknown world of garage kits, small resin outfits and small groups of like-minded fellows. As with all my modelling, I'm attracted to the oddballs, goofs and outcasts: and the plucky line of outdated bombers and fighters that held the line or failed to in the early war years.
