Kit Suggestions

Hi All:
It's been many, many years since I've put together a kit, so I thought
I'd canvas the group for suggestions. My interests in the past have
been 1\48 or better, ww2 aircraft, especially twin engine. I'd prefer
to start out with a relatively easy build and then work up from
there, so I'm wondering if the group could come up with some
recommendations.
Also, what web modeling sites do you recommend?
Any assistance you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

A great kit that fits your subjects would be a 1:48 Tamiya P-47. An excellent kit, a real ego booster because it goes together flawlessly.

Do a little lurking to find the one that best fits you and your personality as well as modeling interests. Each forum has it's own unique flavor.

Tamiya 1/48 Spitfire. Either the Mk I or Mk V versions, for the same reasons as the P-47.

Or a 1/48 Beaufighter by.... sorry, Tamiya again. For the same reasons as the P47 and the Spitfire. There's a pattern beginning to emerge here.

Just about any Tamiya 1/48 kit is going to be a nice build, if you don't mind spending a bit more. Seeing you mentioned twin engine, their Mosquito is an outstanding kit and a great build. I did the FB Mk. VI, the first offering in the series; they've also got a B Mk. IV.

Not to rock the Tamiya boat, but I'd suggest you find a subject that inspires you FIRST...then think about what model kits and manufacturers are out there.
For websites, get yourself an ID to use hyperscale

and get used to posting questions in its discussion forums. It's a very informative group and you'd be shocked how responsive they are.

the revell/monogram he 111 is a great kit to get back in the swing. it's fairly accurate as to size and dimensions, comes with a good bit of detail, but can be super-detailed. you can hang bombs or a torpedo and it's easy to find and not expensive. the 88 is also good.

suggest you also subscribe to greatmodels.com newsletter so you know what is coming up, etc. cybermodeler.com also has a daily "what's new" section. For starters you may want to stay away from Trumpeter kits. Besides the price, their kits usually come with way, way too many pieces, most of them so small that the old farts here at RMS cannot see them.... So as was suggested before, what theme interests you?
