Hello from California
« on: October 04, 2017, 05:30:23 AM »
I've always been interested in model making but never spent the time. Now that I'm older I've started to develop an interest in miniature wargaming.
I really like retro sci fi and I purchased some Hydra 28mm figured but I find them too small for my old eyes to paint, I think I'll try some 40mm figures.

Welcome to the forum.

Concerning failing eyesight, I strongly recommend you try out a cheap magnifier headset with a led, such as this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Idealeben-Magnifier-Headset-Illuminated-Magnifying/dp/B01N498K1C/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1507096673&sr=8-7&keywords=magnifiers

It gets a little while getting used to it, but once you do, it is like feeling 18 again, at least as far as short distance vision is concerned.

I's like to see if I can show pictures from my Instagram, that would be ideal.



It seems to work, but getting the URL of the picture was not easy.

I didn't know I could upload pictures to the gallery and link them here. That's great!


That makes things even easier!

Ah, I know that town.  I used to go to UCSD. 

Are all the houses made of Legos?   ;)
