PostSubject: Hello from a wet and cold UK   Sun Jan 05, 2014 1:22 am

Hi All, my name is Dave. I hope you had a good Christmas and New Year!

I'm familiar with a couple of members through Britmodeller (Madsteve and Colin Burgess) and FB (Colin again), I spotted the link to this site through one of Steve's postings over on BM.
A couple of threads regarding Baxmod caught my interest, I have a fair few of their 1/35 kits in my stash. I'm currently working on the G6 kit and I also have an Olifant begging to be finished! I'll try to sort out a few pictures.

Dave.

Hi Dave and very warm welcome to you, hope you enjoy your time with us. We're small in number but big on modeling, look forward to seeing some of your stuff in the intro section - please visit and post a pic of yourself, it always helps to put a face to a name.

Welcome fellow Brit,

Its wet and wild here, unlike our cousins in 'ol SA where its typically warm at this time of the year.

So you're building a G6, nogal? Will love to see the finnished kit! cyclops 

Till later bub.

Wow, that G6 is an awesome kit!!

That turret is big enough for 6 blokes to stand up in it!

I guess that is going on my wish list!!

Can't wait to see you do the works on it!

very late from me! I've been a bit slack around here to date - but welcome from downunder!

As for your stalled Olifant - get you're rear into gear and get it done!

looking good.

Cheers Phil.

I think the Olifant will be back on the bench once the G6 is out of the way.
