I got my first model kit when I was about 12, played around with it and never tried it again until I was into my late 20s.
I started my second model kit with an F15 Eagle. Without an airbrush I used spray cans, which again didn’t give the best finish, It did though give me a chance to play around with different techniques
I loved the F15 so much that I wanted to get a second shot at doing another F15 Eagle. The second model kit came off very much better and was a thrill to complete.
I did a few Blackbirds and The Mississippi
