Welcome to the quietest paper model group on the web!
LOL some like it that way.
You are welcome to share and post anything you like (as long as it is within the forum rules of course).
We look forward to it!
And if it has anything to do with Shermans, we are anxiously awaiting!

All the best to your "glue man"!

Howdy!  I'm the Ozark Kid.  That was the name of my Dad's Sherman tank in WW2.  I'm here in southern Missouri, as my name implies.  I'm looking forward to learning new and better ways to build paper models.  I've mostly been assembling buildings from vintage models I've found on the internet.  When I'm allowed, I'll post some pictures.  I used to have some simple aircraft, dirigible, and tank models, but I also have a six-year grandson, so guess what happened to those!  He does help me build, though.  He's my glue man.  I show him which tab to apply glue on, and he does a good job.  Thanks for "listening" to my rambling.

New here, lurked around other fori and watched a lot of builds learning lots.  I am ex British army, tanks mainly with a long term project based around the development of the armoured vehicle and all aspects that got involved around design including the politics which many fori do not get involved with.

Long story a bit shorter?  I am interested in the eintwickelungs series and how they fell away with the signs of reduced vehicle sizes on the Heer which would mean the 38D series being used as the common hull for smaller vehicles.  Slightly shorter.......  My experience of paper models so far (my own) is limited to a challenge when I was about eoght years old.  Here is a wrecked solid hull yacht, do something with it.  I made a hull by draping newspaper over the hull and making many layers, finishing with fibreglass resin.  It sailed after a fashion, despite left turns being better than right until my brother put it on the Thames where it sailed into the sunset or wherever it ended up.  I am hoping to make (Laughs with a MILD evil cackle) some armoured vehicles that do better and be a part of my thesis.  I hope not to bore anyone too much and look forward to seeing and learning a lot from people who have been there and done that.  Thanks folks.

Feel free to post your builds (this one, next one, any one) in the "Builds in Progress" area and the "Finished Work Gallery".
That way more people will see your stuff.
(Not everyone reads the introductions)

There are plenty of different areas for different types of posts.

Looks like you are off to a good start with the Suzuki.
