Wow all the changes!
Back in the day there were 2 paint brands no special effects products and glue, still remember the headaches and brush painting was it. Bought an iwata eclipse hp-bs .35 small color cup and smart jet comp. krieky what a difference to technique and finish plus modulation hole new realm . Kits have come a long way and variety of manufacturers and yes cost whoa. But the tools yes awesome variety don't have to ravage dads old fool box now I'm the dad oops grandad .
Several kits on the go and learning tons from you tube and various paint manufactures sites . Love my armor tanks are it for now but artillery will follow them diarama oh sorry vignettes lol. My stress levels have dropped and PTSD is under control once again cheers to all and please keep vids coming as I've got a lot of catching up to do

Welcome!

So many gentleman like yourself here. Comebackers is the term I often use. I’m a 61yo grandad who returned to the hobby after being away since I was a teen. Totally agree about being shell shocked at all the products and kits—aftermarket extras and such. All I ever had was an
Xacto knife, cheap brushes, and $2 models. Oh yeah, testers glue. I actually used some of my mom’s old nail polish to paint with sometimes! Hope you enjoy this website as much as I have!

Welcome back to the hobby. As Ted has said, you're among a lot returnees. Yeah, a lot has changed. Quality and choice, in my mind, have been the biggest changes.
