This is my new project while I decide if I am going to build any more boats! Its a long time since I tried plastic modelling, so we will se how I get on. No build log, but I may post the occasional photo.

I started with plastic kits then came R/C cars and Boats and now i can see the end of the arc of my model boats I've got my retirement ready.
A change is as good as a rest Barrie you're doing the right thing.

When I was a lad, there weren't many - if any - plastic kits, so I started with bits of balsa trying to make aeroplanes(gliders). Then my father bought an Adamcraft Seaplane Tender which we built, followed by I think a  Veron cabin cruiser. Then everything stopped for quite long time.
I never really got into plastic models, just the odd one or two.
I am finding this a bit of a challenge, mainly deciding when to paint, and if I paint before assembling, what do I use for adhesive.

For cement I use Tamiya extra thin liquid poly seeing as it's your first plastic kit for a while id go to the various plastic model forums and have a browse for ideas and cherry pick the various methods. Try the Unofficial Airfix Model Forum (UAMF) it's less full on than most for a plastic kit returner. Most of all enjoy the break and post a few pictures.
