    Ah yes, how could you have "OLD" models when up till 30yrs old you were still kidnapping poor cocroaches and butterflies to put them in a scrap book with "scientific murder" in your hobby mind What a Face Twisted Evil Laughing No

    Its only a matter of will, if you come regular to the club bring your work with you, sit down listen , go home continue your work , you will become a prof modeler....
    bye the way and this count to every beginner , remember this is just a hobby , first your study and your prof for the future don't let the hobby comes first of your study......... cheers

    Don't worry, you will, all you need is patience, commitment, practice and being able to absorb and evaluate criticism. Wink
