Yeah, I build models of world war 11 vehicles. It's a lot of fun. Most people think it's kind of nerdy, but what are you gonna do.
I used to build a lot of models when I was younger. Aircraft, boats, and once a submarine. It was supposed to be a working submarine, but it didn't work that well.
Are any of you into car models, which brand do you buy ?
Personnaly, TAMIYA has got to be the most precise, but i haven't tried any of the other brands ... Anyone got an opinion on this ?
A true challenge for any modeller is to take yourself from the world of plastic and resin and put yourself into the world of Paper Models.
Try doing a google search on Yamaha Paper Models and take a look at the 1/6 scale model motorcycles. An amazing and frustrating pass time.
sculpture and painting.
My favourite series is Matchbox. 1:76 Small scene is nice and cool, also easy to build. I love them.
I haven't tried it myself, but someone I know has just bought their first model recently, and it does seem like a really relaxing way to spend your time.
In fact, it seems like it can take a very long time to build a good model. A model aircraft like the Tomcat for example, has a surprising amount of detail and is very time consuming. Apparently, after painting each piece, you need to wait at least a day before painting it again.
It could quite easily take over a week to paint a model aircraft. I haven't seen a car or other type of model being done, but I can imagine that all of them are similarly time consuming.
While I am happy for my friends and aquantainces to engage in this type of hobby, and I find it interesting enough, I think I'd still rather read a book, which allows you to free your imagination more!
A very nice, relaxing hobby though!
I havent build any models in a while, But my last one was a F-15E, But sadly I broke it in half when it fell off the shelf. Weeks of hard work to waste. I hope to build a model Aircraft Carrier Someday.
I prefer the ships, my city is open to the sea and the big battleships are a common view, despite Hasegawa is the best, I prefer the old big Revells ships. With a brush in hand, I can relax no matter how stressed is my work
