Well you have all inspired me to give it a go.
Thanks for the basic list UNGLEWD.
I add a few things and this is what arrived today.

Around 125.00 US from Cherry Creek Hobbies (Including shipping.) http://www.cchobbies.com/

I'm still working on ideas, but this should be a lot of fun.

My recent experiences have told me to use the proper glue as I found out several times the hard way. In my case (same styrene) the cements/glues for 'polystyrene' are useless. The only really good one that worked was the actual liquid which consists of http://www.plastruct.com/picat/GLUES_TOOLS_9.pdf PPC or BOND. I did some CA joints also, which work, but are more brittle.
Good luck on the styrene, it's getting fun to use now that I've got my feet wet.

Thanks for the info generis.
I don't know why i'm so nervous about it.:paranoid:
Usually I just dive right in.

I think I have a build idea, but I'm thinking a smaller getting familiar build will be the best idea.
