Default I'm me

Decided it's easier to use real names in forums to protect the innocenti.

Live and work in Auckland, New Zealand.

Interests are 1/48 USMC (especially where VMFA-451 are concerned), 1/72 and 1/48 IDF/AF (or ISAF as they are now known), 1/72 Italian jets, 1/48 Modern RNZAF, but will build anything that catches my eye.

I am also the owner of all of Hornet78's unbuilt models...

Hello all,

I'm Andrew Steinbeck and hail from Newcastle, Australia. I'm in the Navy and am currently based in Sydney, working in the head office of the Grey Funnel Line.

My modelling interests are confined to not building anything in 72nd scale and pretending that one quarter of the stash will get built. If a miracle occurred and something was finished, there is a strong chance it would have Navy or Marines titles somewhere, or just go back in the box for stripping and a repaint later.

Cheers.

Hi all,

The name is Len and you may have seen some of my builds in the UK modelling magazines.

I am the guy who avoids resin and brass, and builds lots of stuff which people think will be hidden. But if you hold it like that, and with a torch look in there...

I only build in 1/72, British operated aircraft from, say, 1930 to 1950ish

Jeremy from Russellville, Arkansas. Proud Son of an all-navy family, and I will be continuing the tradition this late summer/fall (better late than never). I got back in to modelling around 2003 after a an 8-9 year hiatus. Naturally I tend to favor NAVAIR subjects, although I've been known to throw in the occasional USAF or foreign subject too. (Never built anything with "Marines" on the side before... but being surrounded by so many here, I'm sure their influence will make itself known eventually!). I'm still a member of ARC (they ain't kicked me out YET!) and Britmodeller. I'm not a member of HS for any personal reasons, simply because I think their bulletin board setup was created by a retarded monkey.

"Good Game" to everyone! (since Scott didn't do it first, I wasn't going to wait to strike! )

" I am also the owner of all of Hornet78's unbuilt models... "

I don't have any unbult models at all, I swear I don't, really! None what so ever. Man I tell ya don't ever be a week late for a GB or there is hell to pay if it's run by Craig, I mean whats he expect I live in a desert where my brain is half fried all the time so hoe does he expect me to live up to some half baked agreement/wager when I wasn't in my right mind???

Ok enough about all that, I'm Jim Clark, been roving around various boards since the late 90's when the web thing took off. I have been working as a Phoenix Firefighter/Engineer for the past 21.5 years and I;m currently assigned to the airport here in Phoenix. Been buildin models since I was a wee lad and I think I might have actually figured out how to do it by now. I;m mostly interested in 1/32 and 1/48 USN and IAF aircraft with some Russian and USAF subjects thrown in for good measure. I will admit to having some Floaty thingies and a few targets in the closet that might get built someday.
Many Thanks to Scott, Geoff and whoever else was behind this grand idea called Z-5.

Jim

Yep and if I had any good sense than I should have broken the other one. I can't remember what I got, cause I didn't collect 1/32 than probably havn't built it yet or used them.

The Revell one sounds good as Tanks's ham hocks don't like the little bits. It's hard for the sledge hammer to hit them it right. A Marine Tomcat would collapse multiply websites. Nice edit by the way, the other Tank is sensitive about that stuff.



Dan, pound sand. That is all.

We were suppose to get them back in 75. A big generals fight and we didn't. I want to Iran got those. Harv can retell the 101 connection. I know/knew of a gent who said that 401 VF-124 had Marines painted on at least one side when we was with VF-124 MAD.
