Hello everyone.

Hi, new person on the forum here. Been doing paper models on and off since 1995, when I bought a paper kit from the Liberty Ship JEREMIAH O'BRIAN. Took me about 6 months to finish it. I've done the Star Trek USS ENTERPRISE and the San Diego Maritime Museum's SAN SALVADORE. I recent got interested in AXM's Space Shuttle series, which I've been building now for the past month. I just completed the STS-1 series: full stack, closed payload bay and open payload bay with payload.

I've found some niggling problems with these models, I'm looking forward to finding anyone else who's done these to discussed solutions.

Thank you. These are fun to build, just the right amount of complexity and detail.

Welcome aboard. Shuttles look good. Looking forward to seeing more of your work. Does your name mean that you are a glider tow pilot?

I got my Private Pilot Glider rating & met my husband at Sky Sailing in Fremont CA (long ago!). Small world.

Yay! Small world, indeed! Were you before or after the Willats? Bret and Karen are doing well. If you're ever in San Diego, you would be more than welcome to visit.
