  1. Thanks guys, been reading some of the posts and I get the sense you're all a great bunch. Looking forward to getting going again but this time with some great advice from you all.
  2. With a 10 year break I have a feeling I'll be a tad rusty! I might start with some basic builds to practice on before I tackle the Hood. I haven't got the skills to scratch build yet, again something I'll practice with. It's really nice to find a forum of like minded people and looking forward to learning from you guys. Jon
  3. Hi everyone and thanks for accepting me. I'm jon, 36, father of 2 and from north east England, I work as a postman and used to be a keen modeller. Been about 10 years since I last picked up a kit due to having kids. I was talking to a friend at work about building models yesterday and he showed me some of his builds that he's shared on this forum. I have a couple kits sitting in a cupboard screaming out to be built and since looking over some of the posts on here I think I've caught the bug again. I don't imagine I'll be posting much on here at first but rather looking for hints and tips. Nice to to meet you all and thanks again. jon
  4. The only real information we have on him came from the hms hood website he was only 20 when he lost his life and was an only child there are some family photos of him with our family but I haven't seen them for a few years. My great grandad had some fond stories too but sadly he passed away and we lost touch with his brothers family. It's strange I used to love to make models and by chance it came up at work yesterday and the lad I was talking to showed me this forum and some of his builds. I've got an HMS Hood kit to build that my father in law bought me when we were researching my relatives past. I've never had the time to start it but I think I've caught the bug again so was looking for some ideas on here when I came across your post. Was a nice coincidence.
