    Hi Guys n Gals,

    a very warm hello from Lancashire, England.

    It's been well over three decades since I last built any form of a kit. I've been building up my stash of 1/72 Introduce Yourself scale Airfix DHC-2 Beavers, being my all-time favourite aircraft and I've got a few basic kits to start practising on.

    So why have I joined up here, I hear you ask? Well it's because I've just found that in the 3rd quarter of 2016, Heller will be putting the beautiful 1/8th scale Yamaha TY125 into production, so that will need to be my first proper, and long term build.

    I saw the wonderful work by Dr Dave on his TY125 so I'm looking forward to see what I can do to do it justice.


    Kindest regards

    Stuart

    Hello I grew up with hobby stores and miss them. I have built cars and aircraft I love them all. I have been away from some years nown but I am back now and the big reason I found a Porcher Rolls Royce Phantom ll open box. Seeing I maybe able to get parts now that might be missing has me wanting to finish her up and get her out of that box.

    After decades of mainly plastic model cars, plus dabbling in resin Introduce Yourself and white metal, and most recently motorcycles, I'm jumping off the end into the deep water. I intend to start with a 1/9 scratch of a Norvin (Norton Featherbed frame holding the monster Vincent 1000cc V-twin). But I'm learning tons from a guy who builds REAL bikes, 1/1 Introduce Yourself , mainly Triumphs, which probably means the Norvin will have a Triton partner . . . if I live long enough. Pushing 76 and still enjoying the hobby my dad turned me on to close to 70 years ago.

    Thanks for your presentation; just a question: why 1:9 which is very unusual. Why not 1:8 or 1:10? Anyway, enjoy the build!

    Cheating! There are a number of kits in 1/9 -- kits that could save me a great deal of time and trouble if I just build (or modify) them.

    Mainly, though, it's to get tires in the right configuration, plus a Featherbed frame to copy.

    But don't tell, okay?

    OK, I was not aware of that...Seems that I don't look too much for kits!
    You can indeed spare a lot of time if you don't have to build every parts for your model...

    Roger, the kits -- mostly difficult to build -- still have a fascinating variety of engines in them. Good to borrow for quick café racer projects. Then there are gas tanks, oil tanks, the occasional fender (they're mainly racers) and the all-important clutch, brake and shifter levers.

    The worst thing: they're damnably expensive!

    I joined scalemotorcars yesterday. I have been building model kits since I was hmmm maybe 6 or 7 and am now getting close to 72. I have an ALFA Romeo kit that was given to me almost 40 years ago and now am finally thinking about building. My research into starting that project brought me to this forum. Looking forward to what I can learn and maybe someday to contribute to this forum. As to my background, I worked in aerospace/defense for about 40 years, and have been a certified gunsmith here in Prescott, AZ for a bit over 5 years.
