FYI: A prediction from this humble but un-cowed American republican has it that Eric Trump (...not The Donald or Junior) will run in '24. We'll have to wait and see...?!
Yeah, we will: Interesting times!

I've not done any model building since I was a teenager, a very, very long time ago.  ;)

Used to enjoy it and spent many a happy hour constructing them, then painting them to try and make them look realistic. Mostly plastic model kits, but I did build one balsa wood model aircraft and that took me a long time, lot's of cutting parts for the frame. Doubt I could do it nowadays, you need good eyesight and a steady hand.

Only piece of advice I would give is take your time and don't rush it. Enjoy your new hobby.
Hobbies & Entertainment / Scale Modelling

I don't know why but I decided to try scale models as a hobby to distract me.
So, this will be my first attempt to build a 1/72 airplane model, I'll let you see the results once it is concluded.

I thought that smaller scales woul be easier but the moment I started looking inside the box Iḿ already regreting, this scale is too much small, iI think 1/48 would be easier.

Anyway, this is the one i'm building, it's a Polish aircraft with it's first flight at 1933.
I will use hand brushes, not airbrushing.

Advices are very wellcome, I'm sure we have amongst us a lot of specialists. :)

I'm still on Windows XP, so when I update I extract the files from the zip file of the XP version, and then just move them all across to my Otter folder, overwriting as necessary.
That's always woked for me.

I'm fine with the snap stuff in principle, as an alternative source. What I don't like though is how in Discover for example you have to pay extremely close attention to where a suggestion's coming from. If you use the command-line or a more dedicated app like Muon that's not an issue.
Manjaro Cinnamon 21.1.2 now includes browser Vivaldi.

Some years ago there used to be resistance to shipping corporate-ware with Manjaro. Now there's Staroffice and Vivaldi and some other things. There also used to be attention to consistency of app sources - repos only - and the users had the opportunity for AUR. But these days Manjaro ships with snapd too...

My Manjaro installations on various machines are old enough so that these new additions do not concern me, but if I need to install again, I will need to pick a different distro.
