new guy - Jumping into the hobby

New Member greetings & introductions
Hi everybody. Aviation has been my passion since I can remember. I could name every plane in the Air Forces inventory from about age 7 and soloed Cessnas and Pipers before I ever drove a car. I also love WWII History so this hobby and myself were bound to collide at some point. For Years I saw aviation art adds in 'Aviation History' magazine and looked in awe at how beautiful the prints were, but I was never able to afford them. Now im at a point where I can afford a print or two a month and im looking forward to jumping into this exciting hobby.

   

   I hope to learn the ropes of this new hobby and look forward to becoming a member of this community. See ya'll around. :D

Howdy:

   

   You're definitely doing it the right way. I did it backasswards and learned a lot after I had made my first purchases. These guys know what they are talking about. :D
