Hi Andy......

This should help:

WIP.... Work In Progress

NMA: ... New Model Announcement

OTB... On The Bench

You may also see from time to time... JMN. This refers to Joyless Modeling Nazi and refers to those modellers who, literaly, count rivet head. Fortunately, we don't have any of those here. LOL

Many thanks for that, much appreciated, I also have a dislike to JMN's, i think it's one of the other reasons why I don't tend to build aircraft and tanks etc...

why?......build for yourself, not others,......ive always took the point of view that its MY model and i shall do it MY way.....if i want to paint it purple and orange than i shall cos its MINE

as long as you are having fun and enjoying the hobby thats the important thing
