    I already feel comfortable, thanks! well, im interested about airplanes, space ships (specially sci-fi), robots and cars, i love formula cars, no matter if they are old or new. I like very much BSG and Stargate. On the other hand, my girlfriend is a fan of Startrek, so... you'll see me often in those threads too (my integrity is at stake ;)).

    When i was very young i builded and painted plastic models of airplanes and some thanks, then after a large period i was absent of the hobby, and now i rejoined the activity, when time allows me. Recently i started with model papers, i found really great how it resolves 2d to 3d with paper! started with a macross vf-9 from designer urashiman, for testing porpuses and i love it! then i build the famous ninjatoes viper mk2, and same! so... i think i will go forward to paper model, pure or hibrid.

    I promise to take photos of the plastic models, but for now i will post here the (few, unfortunate) pictures of this 2 paper models. I guess ill open a thread in model build categories-->science fiction and fantasy? im looking the forum, if i must start in any other place, im open ears for advice.

    Just start a thread in the appropriate categories, though you can post the you have now as part of your Introduction. We do have a few people making plastic, we are not "paper purists". Whatever it takes! :)

    Thanks! i enjoy it alot! as you can see, there is no guns in the viper, cof cof... i will finish it when i get hands of it. I know as a building perspective (this can be reflected in the photos) i lack expertise and experience, but i love this more and more every day, so the journey just begin for me.

    I've already read the rules, and pretend to respect it and stay and grow here with you people. I've been looking here and there diferent topics and i like the place you have buil.

    For the moment, you'll find me just having fun and building a few things. As a long range project, im thinking in learning how to and design stuff. Will see what's going on.. i have a basic experience with cad programs, so this will by starting from step 1 or so for me, but no problem. I've already looking in the cloud tutorials for designing, if you let me, i will ask you for support in this project (technical and psicological :p).

    For the next days. im thinking of going with a level medium build, guess you'll see me in the next days showing something.

    Have a nice weekend!

    So, you held back on us, eh? You are an expert modeler! All the better!! You models are "dead on". Crisp, straight lines. You can see you have talent. Thanks for posting these pictures. They're great!! :)
