I was watching a you tube video of the Polaris 350 Enterprise Refit and the thanks went to this forum.
I joined to try and learn the new methods to build models.
I haven't built a model in over 30 years.
Last Christmas my wife got me the Fine Molds 1/72 millennium falcon and I want to learn the new techniques before I mess it up.
SO I was wanting to know if there are some you tube videos that can show an old dog some new tricks.

I have several small models to learn on.

Welcome Tim!

This is a great place to be. Feel free to ask any questions you might have and someone will help you out ...

I've been wanting one of the 1/72 Falcons for a while now, but you can't find them for a decent price now!

Here is a picture of the models I currently have.
The plan is to build the Stearman Biplane and the Curtis P40 to get used to the glue again, trying not to make a big mess.
I also will be using these two kits as my first airbrush kits.
I want to build the Apollo 27 kit and use LEDs to light it.
I will probably build a few other kits to get more experience before I tacke the 1/72 falcon.
I really don't want to mess it up.

Any suggestions on the glue. thickin a tube, medium, thin, ca????
What is a good entry level airbrush, I think I want a dual action one.

glue i use MEK but you can use glues such as testors,Tenax,ambroid, etc super glue thick, medium, and thin i use zap a gap, a good starter airbrush to me i use Paasche single action but double action is better. just to let you know i would sk the same question in our general discusion part of the forum might serve you better.
