    Hi everyone my name is Allan. I am a recently retiredCommercial artist. I have spent the last 40 years illustrating everything fromjewelry to rockets. When I started things were done by hand. When I finishedeverything was done by computer. Over the years I collected a lot of tools thatbecame obsolete with the computer. I have found that with paper modeling theyare once again viable even priceless and irreplaceable. I loved using them andhated putting them on the shelf. I like modeling just about anything. I leantoward ships, space (Si-Fi and real), and just about anything mechanical. I aman avid fan of UHU02’s work, particularly his 2001 models. I am presentlybuilding his EVA pod. I plan to share this build with you.

    Welcome:wave:

    My model may be difficult .
    (that lack of adequate Instructions…etc)

    But I hope you enjoy it.

    I felt when I walked into this forum… "Wonderful world of model."
    I hope that you feel the same way.

    sorry…My bad English.

    Thank you everyone.

    Thank you everyone for the warm welcome . I think I am about ready for my first build installment. While I spent a great deal of time on the computer I must admit this forum stuff is new to me.
