    I have finally decided on my first project. I am going to try my hand at a P-47 Thunderbolt from Fiddlers Green. A couple of you wanted to see a few pictures. Here are a couple of pictures of the start, please ya'all don't go to hard on me, after all this is my first build.:twisted:

    Everyone has to start somewhere and Fiddler's Green models are an excellent choice!:thumb:

    Oooops

    Well this one is gone, finally got the tome to finish it to find that my two year old had gotten a hold of it and totally destroyed it. I will start it again hear in a few days.

    Ack! What a morale crusher. Sorry to hear your first model is KIA. It was looking good. You need to build some high shelves or a moat around your work area.
