Hello ALL
« on: October 09, 2016, 12:16:08 am »
Hello board, I joined last week after discovering the SMA board while searching for AMT TOS Shuttle Galileo builds.  I have to say I am very impressed with the builds I have viewed and the friendly nature of the board! A bit about myself, I am 45 years old, married with four kids and live in Lafayette, LA.  I enjoy all scifi, but Star Trek TOS is my passion.  Like most members, I got into models when I was young and built several scifi as well as military models (defiantly very crude).  A couple years back I picked up the AMT K-7 Space Station I always wanted to build when I was a kid.  After finishing it I started the AMT Three Piece Space Ship Set (USS Enterprise, Klingon D7, and Romulan Bird of Prey), my brother and I must have built this set a hundred times growing up.  I finished it up this weekend and will post pictures.   My next build was going to be the AMT Enterprise Bridge Set, I have the set already, but I think I want to build the Galileo kit first.  I am currently looking for the Galileo Shuttle Panels from Outer Space Outfitters if any one has a spare set they want to sale.  I will ask the board in the trading thread, but I know I will probably get more views here  :).  Anyhow,  I am glad to be here and thoroughly enjoy looking at the work you guys have done!

Outstanding, Malleman!

Welcome to the boards! For a while, I lurked here a bunch before I joined, too! But after joining and interacting with the masters here, I have learned ALOT about the craft!

I've seen your gallery posts and it looks like you are well on your way in building! We love, as you can tell, WIP threads with lots of pictures so keep 'em coming!

Again, welcome and I look forward to you builds!

Welcome aboard! Always great to add more modelers to the boards. Can't wait to see your work!
I play, I putty, I spray, and pray! Putty, sand, repeat...
All putty and no spray makes TOS models green and gray... All putty and no spray makes TOS models green and gray... All putty and no spray makes TOS models green and gray... All putty and no spray makes TOS models green and gray...

Welcome to the group.  Looking forward to your builds.

To build or not to build.... that is the question.   The answer.... build... Duh.
