Hi, My name is Andreas, and this is my first post . . .ever! So pardon me if it ends up all goofy. I have been cardmodelling for about a year now, ever since a colleague put several of his Canon/Epson animal models around the office. To paraphrase W.C. Fields, "A friend drove me to card model and I never had a chance to thank him." I have been doing mostly free models, and in my search ended up here. I have been lurking for more than 6 months, and since there has been a bunch of new members I thought I'd jump in too. (I was waiting to see what else Phil would offer next in the Welcome Wagon - wait don't join yet, you also get this free Gizmo, it punches holes, it hides mistakes, it keeps fuselages banana free, and . . . it makes julien fries!). I thought I liked planes, but have biult ships (Wicked Wench), cars (Canon's Etype Jag) and trains (Thomas the tank engine and The Preussische P8), so I'mm interested in several forums! My latest idea: to biuld in a combo laser-pointer/torch into the TNG Phaser model, inspired from the narrow / wide setting. I'll post a thread if it gets anywhere!
