This is my first post in my model making blog. This will be a record of my journey of getting back in to model making.
When I was younger I used to build quite a few model kits, aircraft, AFV’s and figures. Then life happened and I stopped making model kits. Over the years I would look at models in shops and even got one or two. However I never really made a effort to re-start the hobby.
Well last year I did start again, and boy have things changed! Thought my old “skill” would suffice, yeah….no! So it is basically re-learning new skills, which is a bit frustrating at times, but great fun.
As this is an Cold War themed website, I will only chat about my Cold War builds, this may also include vehicles and figures, but the majority will be aircraft.
At the moment, I’m building 1/72 and 1/144 scale aircraft, but I’m considering trying some 1/48 scale kits, once funds allow.
Talking of funds, I’m a member of the Amazon Associates scheme, so I will be linking useful items to the Amazon site, if you buy after clicking on the link, I get a small commission from Amazon.
Oh, must also mention, that not only am I trying to improve my building skills, I decided I’d also start using an airbrush!
Well I hope you join me on this journey, I’m always happy to receive constructive criticism.

Just a quick note about the Airfix affiliate scheme that I’m in. The commission I get from them helps towards the cost of running this site, and also with the purchase of new kits. So if you buy via the links, thank you so much.
