no worries, nobody starts off as a pro B) Build your cars to suit you, as long as you are happy with them, that is what counts. :lol:

Welcome to the forum and I have to envy your hubby having a building partner right in the house. Or, maybe I don't .. "that's MY can of gloss black!" :lol:

Enjoy your stay and love to see anything you do. As said above, just build for yourself and enjoy it.

    I work hard, I build models for relaxation and fun.

Welcome aboard. I am also a fairly new member, several months anyway.
I just got back into modeling after a very long absence and I am amazed at the quality of building models contained on this site.
But don't worry there all nice people and more than willing to help.

Welcome aboard! I don't post here much but I lurk constantly. There are some real craftsmen and artisans here. It's very cool to get a woman's perspective on model cars. I can show my daughters what the "girls" can do.:P. I plan on giving them each a kit to paint I'm sure it will be pink and have My Little Pony's all over it. :lol:

i have noticed there is alot of talented people on here as blake has showed me people work on here before and its amazeing what people can do to a model car/truck. ive always been interested in cars/trucks but only got into it recently but im sure ill have fun. i may be a girl but ive always hated pink and plus i always loves playing around with toy cars and stuff like that instead of dolls so im sure that helped me out some as well.
