Hi all,

I'm new to the forum and sort of renewed to modeling. I'm just starting to get back into military model and diorama building again after 30+ years. I discovered this forum while looking for a place to donate some of the dioramas I built many decades ago. I've sent out feelers to several museums in Arizona, but was wondering if there may be other places I should offer them to. Thanks in advance for any advice, and thanks for such a great forum...Jim

Welcome Jim...exciting to have you aboard. Hope you find this forum and the wonderful community behind helpful and enjoyable. Also good to hear you are back at it. Hope you find enjoyment in your modeling adventures!
COMPLETED:
• HMS Victory (DeAgostini Subscription) - if you haven't got it, get it...what a beautiful build. This was my first attempt at this stuff and what a great experience. The instructions were spot on for those new to the hobby.
• HMS Bounty Admiralty (DeAgostini Subscription) - View the build diary.

IN PROGRESS:
• USS Constitution (DeAgostini Subscription) - View the build diary.

IN NEED OF MY LOVE AND ATTENTION:
• HMS Sovereign of the Seas (DeAgostini Subscription) - promise myself I will get to this after I finish the USS Constitution and the HMS Bounty. Need to maintain balance in my marriage.

Hi Jim!

Welcome in! You don’t say what area in AZ your from, but I’d check with the local VFW.

I hope you stick around!

Best,

Mark

Thank you all for the warm welcome and some good ideas.
I'm in the process of relocating from the Phoenix valley to the Cottonwood area, downsizing to some degree. Thanks again...Jim
