Have to admit I really enjoy making and painting kits. The concentration needed does distract from the various arthritis pains! Meds make things a lot more bearable than a few weeks ago but doing these helps too. There is a (plastic) model show next weekend and the Mrs says she is interested to go too. Says it would be ideal to get some Christmas gifts for me but I suspect it is to make sure my wallet stays firmly in my pocket.
Tried to print some NRU emblems to see what size they would be but they are too small. Might get some decal paper for vehicles though.
Wanted some models to practice on. Stuff like using modelling putty and the airbrush and doing fine details and so on. Cheapest proper kits I could find (of things I actually would like to build) were about £10/€10 each. Didn’t have a lot of parts either. I then spotted these. They are slight smaller than the first kit I did but you get 8 for £10. They came from China.
Each has about 15 parts and snap together. But the final tank isn’t that bad really and has a reasonable amount of detail. Should be fun to paint and weather. The size also gives the a very high WAF.
Wife Acceptance Factor is an important consideration in any purchase, even more important than price (though that does come into it when you suggest selling one of her kidneys (no not a Melania ”kidney”) to fund said purchase).
