    Hello and welcome to the forum.
    It is always GREAT to see a child following in their parents footsteps in this hobby.
    What sort of things are you interested in?

    By all means, please post a build thread of your builds. If you have any models that you have already built, please post photos of those as well.

    I look forward to seeing your work.

    Once again, welcome aboard.

    I hope that you enjoy yourself here.

    Welcome aboard. It is always inspiring when kinfolk tend to follow in the footsteps of their elders. Pick a genre, start cutting, pasting and posting photos. We are here to assist if possible and if not, direct you in the right direction. Needless to say, read the rules and policies and hope to see some of your builds around here soon.

    Welcome, young man! I'd say I expect great things from you, but I won't. I know it sounds weird, so let me explain: you don't have to feel obligated to show amazing works right now, this is a HOBBY.
    As many have written above, what you need now is to HAVE FUN and ENJOY the hobby. Once you get to love this hobby, then, oh boy, I'll expect FANTASTIC things from you.
    So, young man, welcome aboard, take your time, have fun and enjoy!


    P.S isn't 12 ft 9' the height of the Hulk?

    Hi Marcell,

    Actually, my son lives in South Africa, with his wife and children. But, they are thinking of emigrating here in the future. But the way the bloody weather has been around here, I might advise them (and myself,) to settle a little closer to the Med. :rolleyes:

    As you and I live relatively close, maybe we will meet you for a beer one day. sign1

    Tell Dad to take you to a Michael's Craft Stores, get UHU Brand Glue, and a bottle of Zip Dry Glue, the best, and both non toxic, they also sell a nice 3 pack of cutting scissors, three sizes, that are excellent. You then need to go to Staples and get .67 lb and 110 lb. card stock. Then pick a subject! :)
  11. Welcome to this forum.
    I am pleased that father and son build together something beautiful here.
    Many building and paste pleasure.

    Since you live in South Africa, you may want to make contact with Thunder Child. He too is from South Africa, and can answer all of your questions as to where are the best places to get supplies, and such.

    I am looking forward to seeing your work!
