Hello from Arizona

#1

Post by GIGENE »

Hello,

My modelling skills are not the greatest, but I recently discovered the F-Toys line of pre-painted easy to assemble warplanes. So I am trying to find more information about them.

Cheers,

Gene

Welcome to the forum, Gene! :D

Firstly, don't worry about your skill level. If I did, I wouldn't still be here after well over a decade! Secondly, as a starting point for F-Toys, check out the listing of gashapon that we are updating regularly. Like you, I got back into modelling after a chance purchase of a handful of gashapon on evilBay (mainly Takara and Popy, then a little later, F-Toys and CafeReo). In a lot of cases, gashapon are the only option for various aircraft in our scale. And, more often than not, they are accurate and very well detailed.

I butcher kits and leave big, gluey thumb prints on canopies all the time, so, welcome aboard!

Gene, welcome aboard! I too am an assembler rather than a true modeller. My skills are modest and although I have three airbrushes I can't use the things,

Hope you enjoy your time with us.

Welcome! I rediscovered this hobby partly through Gashopon too. Glad to have you here.
