Welcome Dan. You will find tons of help to get you through your first build by going to 'Community' and then 'Forum'. Look for a topic and begin reading. There are thousands of photos here and a ton of videos. As you make 'Friends' you can email them with questions you might have. Spend some time looking at photos and watching the videos. You can build 'em simple or complex. There are no rules here. Once you get a build or two under your belt, the newbies will be asking you questions. You will learn something new with each visit. Good luck and give me shout!!
