    Hi all,

    Just wanted to say hi to all, and give a bit of background about myself.
    I've been modelling since I was a kid (>30 years ago) and love building military models - tanks, planes, ships, dioramas, etc.
    I signed up on this site quite a while ago,m but totally forgot about it, due to work, real life, etc/
    I recently re-discovered paper models and have build a few of them. I'll post some pics of them soon :)

    Some of the works on this site are outstanding and an inspiration to me!

    Cheers
    Alan

    Hello Alan,

    Welcome to Zealot. You have come to the right place for all things in paper modeling. There are many members here who are military vets and who are into military models. So, I hope that you will feel at home here. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, need help or advice, please feel free to ask, and we will do what we can to help you (or at least point you in the right direction).
    By all means please post photos of some of the models that you have built. We love seeing photos.

    Once again, welcome aboard. I hope that you enjoy yourself here.

    Thanks all for the warm welcome!
    Quick question - do I post pictures of my work in the Gallery? Can I post modelling pics (ie not just papercraft models)?

    Thanks again!

    Howdy! I love building anything military, but my favourite are tanks and figures. I build a few planes, but I'm not really very good at them :p

    Post your pics in this thread you have started. The Gallery is only for models that have a build thread associated with them. You can post quite a few pictures here, 10 per post, as many posts as you need. More people will see them that way too. Use the "Upload a File" on the lower right side of the screen, you can select "Thumbnail" or "Full Size', use "Thumbnail" if you post large pictures, or the thread takes too long to load, that ind of turns people off. Thanks for posting an Introduction. ;)
