Hi All,
1st post new to the forum. My name is Brian I'm 65 years old and retired. I was a fitter on London transport for 50 years.Been building models for about the same amount of time. I build most types of model my main interest is WW11 armor/Cars F1 and I also like most things RC.And of course ships. At the moment I'm building the Trumpeter 1/200th HMS HOOD but I've come to a stop because I'm waiting for my PONTOS upgrade set to arrive. So far I've removed the lower hull and boxed in the hull plus started to build some of the sub assemblies. So at the moment I'm back to my PERKASA MTB the 1/32nd scale. Must admit the air indoors has been blue with this kit :twisted: but I'm getting there. I forgot to say I live in Romford Essex. So I will be picking your brains at some point. All the very best, Brian...

A warm welcome to the forum Brian,
I've built the Hooben Perkasa, with a bit of care and swapping out of some parts, it makes a beautiful model.
A little forward planning, saves a red face later!
