IMG445.jpg at 8 years old. my soon to be step-son Beau took an interest in modeling so I got him a couple snap cars first and I noticed they didn't pose a challenge to him at all. I decided to grab the 85 camaro kit originally for myself but gave it to beau because I thought it would be a great starter kit. Well he jumped right in and these pictures show how well I think he did. He did everything! Painting gluing and detailing. I think he did a great job!!! IMG443.jpg

Chuck's onto something, Beau is doing great for his age! My models at 8 years old were misshapen blobs of glued plastic that may have been parts at some paint, and paint with brush strokes in it! Take a bow Beau, you've done a great job, what's next for the little guy?

I don't know what to get him next but I'm sure he'll knock it out of the park. I noticed his ADHD calms down a lot when he is working on a model! I am super proud of the boy

Looks great! He's a natural! I know my ADD settled waaay down when I would start working on a model, just a bit older than 8. Of course, then I'd work on 2-3 at a time... :D

During my teaching days, it was one of the reasons I really pushed modeling on the kids. It FORCES you to slow down...think about what you're doing, follow directions (more-or-less) or work out something if the instructions don't quite work. Frankly, I wonder if one of the reasons I lost jobs was because I was talking these kids out of SPED (and the school departments out of the huge amounts of money that go with SPED kids, but that's a rant for the disillusioned teacher's boards).

 

For his age especially, he did a fine job on that and can definitely be proud of it.

I'm amazed at his super clean window installation. I was getting glue spots on my glass even after I graduated high school. Beautiful build Beau! Keep building, I wanna see MORE!!!

To tell you guys the truth I was a bit jealous of the boy. I just got back into modeling and I think his camaro looked just as good if not better then my sedan delivery I built resently. I like the things he did to make it his own. Like the fact he wanted the valve covers copper colored and tail light lenes clear like the newer car lights. he is saying things like I want make carpets in my next car.

I have been reading the posts you guys have left and he is really jazzed to show you all what he build next. Thank you guys for your comments it's helping his self esteem a lot
