Hi to you too Geoff. I might have a go at some military vehicles sometime, but at the moment my passion is for WW2 aircraft. I still like ships, but not in the scales that the plastic kits come, they are too small and fiddly for me, although I do have an un-started kit of the Titanic in 1/400 scale which I have had for quite a few years, so I think I will make a start on that pretty soon and try and rig some lighting into it.
My first aircraft build will be a 1:32 Revell Spitfire MkIIa. but still waiting for paints and stuff before I make a start. I have almost got my workshop ready, after dusting away all the cobwebs and giving the inside a fresh coat of white paint. It's at the bottom of my garden 12ft x 8ft and insulated, with heating for the winter months and of course an electric kettle for brewing up. [rolleyes]

your ship models are superb, reminds of the scale models of ships you used to see in shipping companies or the 'old' IWM. As you say plastic kit ships are too small although I have a couple of 1/72 scale MBTs up in the loft (unmade of course). Military vehicles have always been my 1st passion but packed up modelling in the early 90's and started collecting militaria instead, but packed that up when I filled my house up. Then last November I saw and bought AFV Clubs Churchill ARV in 1/35 scale but I haven't started it yet as I bought some fairly simple builds first to get my hand back in, which I seemed to have to done, but I am struggling with the painting side, I don't seem to get on too well with all these acrylics now available, in my day it was Humbrol enamels.
Still mustn't prattle on.

all the "new" things associated with scale modeling are a matter of use, familiarity, experience.......but you know that. Water based paint can be a real challenge to get the effects you are used to with oils. Best wishes!
