I will join the Korea GB with the Special Hobby P-80 Shooting Star. I am new to the Forum so please be gentle, I can only aspire to the skills displayed by the LSP members and the site has been very inspirational. I have restarted model building two years ago after a 25 year break and I am amazed at the choice and quality of the kits these days. So far I have built only 4 1/32 WW2 birds (the old Hasegawa Hellcat, Zero and Fw190 and the more recent Trumpeter Bf-109E) and some 1/35 armor. I am currently finishing the ZM Skyraider in USAF scheme and while the kit is amazing, I have to admit it was a bit too much for my level.
The P-80 will be my first jet, my first limited edition kit and my first NMF so maybe it will be a bit much but I love the line of the P-80 and I plan to enjoy the learning process. I have not yet decided on the markings but I know that it will be carrying Napalm cans (inspired by my recent read of the book of Bob Neer: Napalm an American Biography, which is an excellent read). I am still waiting for some aftermarket items and then I will get going. Thank you all in advance for the support and advice and I will post my box shots as soon as I figure out how to post pictures.
