      Newbi To Going Down Uner

      Post  ojays on Wed Oct 22, 2014 10:13 pm

      Hi my names Gregg,
      I returned to plastic modelling about 3 yrs ago after a lay-off for 40+years.
      During that time I was into R/C aircraft, both building and flying (crashing)

      Now retired and being my disabled wife's & Elderly mother's carer, I made the decision to get back to my original passion of kit modelling. This I thought would allow me to escape from the outside world occasionally.

      For my first new plastic build on my return I decided to change Genre,  so I converted an 1/35 Italeri S-100 Schnellboat into R/C. Having limited (me) time this took me 3 years starting it in 2011 to complete.

      Having completed this, and recently seeing a completed Revell Type VIC submarine. I thought I would give one a go, and have decided I would like to convert this to R/C.
      I have managed to obtain both the Revell 1/72 Gato & the Type IX U-Boat.
      I will probably only build as a surface runner, as it seems quite complicated/expensive to get it to go under.
      A member of another forum suggested I look on here, so here I am!

      I hope you will forgive me if I ask some questions that me seem simple to you, but maybe confusing to me.

      Gregg

      Welcome Gregg.

      Looking at your model we can't teach you anything about weathering. Very nice.

      (And you've even negotiated our strange photo posting system!)

      See you and ask away!
