Anything you need just fire on and you'll find someone to help you for sure
Irrelevant of how your previous work looks like, POST some of it in the finished models section! No one was born an accomplished modeller and no one will die so believe me, so go on let us see some of your "sweet monsters" on our forum
Thanks Ray! Will do!
I still need to find these models though, they're somewhere in the basement, and it's been at least 2-3 years I think. Must be swimming in dust.

Thanks! Haven't really started on anything so far but I've got a lot of unassambled Resin model kits... Some of them cost me quite a bit and I don't wish to start on them before I know I can do a good job on them. Maybe if I could make copies of them out of cast molding, that'd be perfect... It would even give me an excuse to try out different variants and practice.

And we were discussing yesterday that video games ONLY create distruction from our hobby, might work opposite sometimes you got interested thanks to them ... so it's just a double edged sword!
As for airbrush I do not really recommend you to buy a secondhand one, we just came from Euromilitaire and found out a new ecomnomical range by Badger that is quite solid and very good priced. There is also Paasche on the same level and alos value for money. I got myself an AIWATA, may be you are aware of that they are some of the best around but I do not recommend them as a first hand approach if you are not very userfriendly. Cleaning them is already just enough to get you frustrated, they are very precise but complex ... too complex!
Might you go and visit K-Hobbies of Fgura, Tony had advertised her that they had a good range of airbrush, from basic to high end. We recommend a double action one, gravity feed or side depends your choice.
No way man, Video games are pretty much on the same level as movies nowadays!
Ah, your words are gonna force me to buy a brand new Iwata/Badger airbrush then... I was hoping to get a cheap one for practice since I'm a beginner... It'd suck if I found out I was hopeless at airbrushing after purchasing an expensive airbrush.

And welcome to the forum.
I would follow the recommendations of posting pictures of your work so far. I am still new (2 years in modeling) and Oliver is still laughing of the memory of my first model I brought to the club.
BTW, I'm the short guy.
Hey Tiny! Thanks! If you're short, then the rest of us are scale models compared to you. Haha.. ok that was a bit lame.
