Greetings from Suwanee, Georgia

Recommended Posts

Hi, finally decided to dip my big toe into the pool and test the IPMS waters! Joining IPMS is a significant step for me, since I am just an average modeler looking to get a little more serious about the hobby. Never entered a model into a contest, but interested in meeting others who do. I participate in the forums at Modeling Madness and have posted some images of completed and WIP kits there, but that is the extent of my connection to other modelers socially. Not sure if there are any active chapters around here (Northeast Atlanta suburb) or others in my area that would be interested in getting together.

 

I build mainly 1/48 scale aircraft with the occasional 1/32 dropped in the mix (just because I could never afford them when I was younger!).

 

Current project is Tamiya's wonderful 1/32 F4U-1. Just about ready to attach the outer wings and start the exterior painting - have done quite a bit since taking this photo.

Welcome Kurt! The Atlanta area?....can't be more than 3 or 4 IPMS clubs within an hour of you! :smiley2:

 

If there's any one misunderstanding about IPMS it's that we're GREAT modelers! Ask almost any of us and we'll say we're right there with you- "just average". That's the great thing about IPMS, it's for everyone, no matter if they're just beginning or in a position to pass along some pointers to less experienced builders.

 

Glad to have you here on the forums with us, and I encourage you to find a club there in Atlanta and get to know some of your fellow local builders. Let us know how WE can help you along, though by looking at that Corsair, you're far ahead of the game!

Welcome Kurt. What Gil says is true. Most clubs get together simply to talk about modeling (and other things) and to exchange tips etc. The Corsair looks good.

Welcome Kurt! I'm on the far side of the country from you, but I like what I see already. For an 'average' modeler, you put me to shame! Well done and I also highly recommend joining up with a local club.
