Thanks. I attached a couple pics of the Spitfire. Trying to get the wrinkles out of the tissue while doping and painting was a challenge. Iím sure it will go better the more that I do. For paints, I used the RAF series by AMMO. It turned out fairly well. I still have a few details to finish on this static model. Then on to the next.

Welcome Birddog63!
I think you'll find many modelers who are eager to assist you as you progress in this wonderful hobby.  Please check out the tips and tricks board and the Gadgets board for lots of helpful information to assist you as your build.  Also post lots of pictures of your recent build and new builds and ask questions.  You'll find more suggestions than you can possibly use at one time.  You'll also find some great comaraderie!
Once again, Welcome!!!

I'm new to balsa modeling, though I've been exposed to it my entire life.  While my father built balsa models, I focused on plastic modeling throughout my childhood and teens.  Now 40 years later, I'm just beginning to explore the fun of balsa models.  I'm in the final stages of finishing a Guillow's Spitfire #403.  My father provided me with years of kits to choose from for my next project.  One of them is a 1/2 built Guillow's B-29 #2005 (giant build).  All his modeling has been static builds focused on details.  I'm a little nervous jumping directly into that model with only one previous build under my belt.  As I embark on this hobby, I'm looking forward to sharing pictures and projects.  I'll also look to the forum for guidance.  I've already gleaned some great tips from the postings.
