One of several boards I visit. I am more of a "lurker" than a poster. I suffer from the inability to see a project through because it does not measure up to what I see on these sites. I am trying to cure myself. I will enjoy what you post and maybe soon add to the discussion.

I’ve only been a short time but I too am from Virginia (Manassas). You’ll love it! I’ve already learned some great tips, recommendations for books and marveled at the skills of other members. This is a great site!

Rich,
Welcome!
Your comment: Remember, nothing has to measure up to anything even our outlandish expectations. You’ll have more fun and satisfaction and learn tips along the way. Look forward to posts from you when you catch the bug!

I agree, I have only been here a few hours and the site and the ships are an inspiration to do better.

Welcome Rich, I was also a lurker on other forums but I have felt so comfortable on this site I started a few build logs. The encouragement and constructive criticism has help me to improve my skills. So jump in and enjoy the site.

Aye, welcome. I build kits and they tend to look 'weathered' when finished, more by incompetence than design but still I'm always satisfied with the result. My formula is always happiness >accuracy!
oops I forgot to look at the 'date joined' and I don't know how to delete this post

Welcome! Don't worry if your builds don't reach the level of perfection of some of the people here. Mine sure don't - as far as I'm concerned - but I sure have a lot of fun building. And it's quite relaxing. Just do it and enjoy the progress you make from beginner to what ever level you desire to reach. It's all good!
