Do you accept an insane and compulsive model maker in your community?


Recommended Posts

Hello, gentlemen.

 

My name is Eric, callsign Snafu35, aka Bob C on Utube ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcEdaxcpWySA0CQKp2fZSww )

I am a french modeler (Nobody's perfect :rolleyes: ),  and I happily fill 57 years.

I have been building models since ... ( prescription!  :clif: ) and if my stock of planes to do at 1/48 is around a hundred - I think I am a small player compared to some of you -, I have been on a 1/72 trip for a few years.

This scale allows me to make scenes that mix airplanes and vehicles.

I fell in love with the flying fortress. I collect models of four-engined aircraft and I put them in situation on dioramas ( B24s too). 

Finally, everything that comes close to the Mighty Eighth.

But I do not disdain other planes, like those of the Battle of the Pacific, and the French aviation of the 80s.

The battle of Normandy, in particular the American front in the Cotentin, on land and in the air, is also one of my hobbies.

Maybe it's because I lived in Cherbourg, and now I still live nearby.

I decided to subscribe because  Britmodellers community seems to be international, and also because I fear to bore my compatriots on our French forum with my delirium!

A forum is for me a way to share and to motivate myself.

Is it serious, doc'?.

Welcome from the home of the 8th (East Anglia) - I am sure that you sneaked picture no 2 in as it looks too real to be a model.

 

Do take a look at the various Group Builds as they are a great way into Britmodeller if anything takes your fancy.

Good morning all.

 

I Thank you for your welcome, which seems to be very international to me.

 

@Paul821/ I assure you that this photo is made with models: The B24 in the foreground is the1:48 Monogram one , then there is a  1:72 GMC Heller, An Austin K6 Airfix and a Liberator Académy.

I am a big mythomaniac. 

I continue to discover the messages on this forum, and my God there are extraordinary things. 

 

By the way, here is a picture of a port of my B17 collection:

Bonjour Eric

Welcome to the truly International forum of modellers.

 

I like your theme of B17's, I have a thing for the Lancaster so we are part of the brotherhood :thumbsup:

 

Like you, I also dabble with a few vehicles to create scenes  . . .

Well, to name but a few, we have one @general melchett, a visitor from Mars, a Belgian who lives in the naughty corner (@corsaircorp), a Space Ranger, (@Space Ranger) a refugee from the Viz adults comic, (@CedB) and of course @Mike who started this site and is therefore by definition clearly bonkers. Yeah, I think we can just squeeze you in. :welcome:

Clearly, the insane are not only welcome...but thrive here.

 

As for compulsive...my friends all tell me I'm compulsive...but I've told them thousands of times that I'm not....

 

Welcome, Eric! Glad to have you aboard.

Insane ?? Compulsive ?? 

Never heard these words before....

Welcome in Britmodelloonies.... 

I think that you will soon realise that lunacy is not only welcome but mandatory...

The nasty corner is on Venus, we let the vogon poetry down as a password...

Now, you just remember Triple Karmeliet, Blue Chimay and Delirium Tremens...

Naughty corner is a nice place to build models...

Huh, Great collection of B-17

I did'nt start mine yet...

To be a serial starter is also appreciated !!

Stay safe man

35 ?? Britany ??

Sincerely.

Sounds like you'll fit in well, in fact, so well, we may not notice you, unless of course you mark your territory with some of those superb dios from time to time. :) 

I hope you don't mind me asking but what is the story of that last dio, the one with the Pzkpfw IVs & Shermans in the village street?

Hello, Ian

This photo makes me hungry. I will really settle down on this forum!

I am a suck' at an English truck, but is it a Fordson? Did you scratch it?

Hello CC.

Yes; I live in Rennes, a frog who wants to be bigger than the ox. So I isolate myself by building model kits.

It's not a naughty corner but I adapt.

Thank you, Chris.

I'm afraid to spend a lot of time here!

Hello Andre,

I'm sorry for being egoistic!

Can I stay anyway?

Hello,Steve.

Okay; I will  sing the Marseillaise to get noticed, when I post a subject.

But you won't want to hear me anymore, after that!

 

Have a look here for my diorama with tanks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReTCu8rWhWs

Eric-Snafu35

 

PS: I don't speak or write Martian, can I stay anyway? :penguin:

Bien sur!

 

Oh, and speaking Martian comes naturally after a certain number of beverages, no worries.

It is indeed a Fordson aircrew bus that I scratched built

 

I also converted the Bedford and Albion 48th vehicles to other type.

 

I recently converted an AEC Matador 4x4 kit to 6x6 AEC refueller vehicle for my large scale Lancaster (WIP)

Au revoir for now

I resemble that comment half-heartedly! <_<

 

:welcome: aboard Eric.  Most of the members here are harmless, and thanks to their advancing age, when they do bite, it's mostly just gums ;)

Hi Eric,

 

Welcome aboard.

 

I really like your modelling subjects. I am glad I noticed the Allied armour column on the right I was just about ready to pounce in my Typhoon.
