Topic: Plastic Model Kits?


Anyone here a Plastic Kit fan? I like doing aircraft ones, mostly 1/48, did some 1/144 and they are tiny, did a few...Did 2 Me109, 2 Spitfires, 2 Fw 190, a P47, F16, F15, Mig29 and some other...Im building a S-199 Avia....I built a Sherman but I messed up with the parts and it finnished as a "Destroyed Sherman", with shell holes, disconnected turret and "rust"....Do you build these 2 ?

I do. They're awesome. I built a Messerschmitt, a P-40, an A-10, am in the process of building an AV-8B Harrier. My brother was a lot better at it than me, he built whole heaps of things. An Apache, a giant B-29, an Mk-1, a Tie Fighter, a P-51, and more that I don't remember. I like them, they're fun

What i have been getting into lately is card models...where you cut it out of paper..and you can get houses, tanks, planes. thats fun!

In my school they have "activity day" for winter and spring and one of the options for a winter activity was Model building and I did it in 6th grade. It was alot of fun and I believe I was building a F14, but never finished it

hmmm...yes I built a few that went o my HS when I lvied in SC...The military history class(which i was in) built a model of a german air attack on london during WWII...Left them there...Was no point taking them with me...I took 2 models withe me, a Mustang P51(there you go Sphonix) and a Fw190.Only the Fw suvived. The Mustang was in pieces, so I fixed it but then our cleaner lady shot it down with a duster....

I got to admit it those who clean do a good jump of getting rid of models. left my PT-109 with one engine, shoot down two planes from my Yorktown model, one fell over board on my Kittyhawk and lost its radar, my submarine has no means of tracking or seeing above the water line with out surfacing, the USS North Caroline is fine thankfully, lets see shot of the nose of my F-14 Tomcat in for repairs right now, took off a wheel of my Apache, My other models are fine but not much of them left.
