    Hi everybody. I'm Tonino, from Republic of San Marino (ever heard about it? It's a very little -independent- country in the center of Italy). I signed some time ago but never had the time to frequent a lot this GREAT place (two little sons are enough as an excuse? You can't imagine how hard is only to keep them out of my "modelling room"). Now I have a little more time so I'd like to be more present in this very active group..
    I am a "total" modeller. I mean I builded models for a long time and every kind of subject (planes, helicopters, ships, cars, tanks, buildings, figures...) and techniques (mostly plastic and wood). You can say I'm a sort of ... unsettled. Recently I discovered the world of paper models and it was love at first sight!!! Now I'm learning the basic but I'm enjoing my time very much. I like to modify slightly the models I buy and, with paper, is really funny to draw print and create new parts.
    Besides, when you have to keep your work away from children, it's very useful to have just few tools and your "work in progress" can be easily put on top of a bookcase.
    I'll try to build my image gallery with my first steps in paper model world. I have a couple of other things I want to share with you. You will find someone soon in the tools section.
    Well, it's all for now. Hope to have a lot to talk about with you.
    And... excuse my poor English... :oops:

    Tony, I have heard of it! I have also visited your country when I was a young teenager on holidays with my family. Welcome to the forums :)

    An advantage of coming from a tiny nation: If you convince two friends to build paper models, you can claim to have the world's highest number of paper modellers per capita.

    Your English is better than many native-speakers, so feel no fear there.

    Welcome Tony. Not only have I heard of San Marino, I have been there several times during the late 70s. Nice place 8v) I have since lost 99 percent of the Italian I learned living in the Aviano area for three years. Only remember the curse words 8v) So don't worry about your English. I'm just glad I don't have to worry about conversing in Italian...or Danish...or German...or Russian...the other languages I use to speak but have since forgotten.
