So as I ease my way back into the hobby I decided on a kit that I always heard is bulletproof and a Real World build kind of because I like the scheme and have never done one.  Sorry for the poor pics.  Proper photo setup coming soon. 

So I got that going for me...which is nice....

Sorry  forgot to mention the kit is the Tamiya 1?48 F-16CJ.  It's not cheap but it is a Shake n Bake kit that would lend itself well to a build where the majority of the work goes into the paint/markings/backstory.   I'm thinking of one in RNZAF colors assuming their F-16 order didmd get cancelled...

Very Tidy.

six years away from the hobby? dont look like its degraded your skills that much (if at all)  :thumbsup:
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.
