VERY nice job smoothing out that paint. Looks like it could be a Mary Kay promotional car!


She's a beautiful young lady, and did a very nice job with that. Keep her building something- cars, planes, ships, figures. Kids don't work enough with their hands anymore and have lost the art of appreciating delayed gratification. Keep her at it, and she can point the way to her school mates and friends that instant satisfaction isn't all that great.


As Rob said, that winning smile says it all. No faking that.

This is probably one of the best posts on this entire forum. It's a rare thing these days to see a parent that actually takes the time to do something like this with their child. Let alone a child of the opposite sex. Kids that get this kind of attention are the ones a whole lot less likely to go into a school and start shooting. My hat is off to you.

WARNING - In eight more years she'll want you to buy her a real one like that!


Boy, ain't that the truth!  :lol:

That's is a great job! Like other said before it's great to see a young lady take to the hobby, and great to see a parent not setting their kid in front of a tv. Keep up the awesome work, both of you, look forward to seeing her next project!!

That is great!!! You should be very proud of her! B)


My just turned three granddaughter will come into the room and see all the models in various state of disrepair or unfinished. Then she will open the closet door and say "wow thats a lot of cars grandpa."

She will walk up to the desk and then point to things and ask what it is and where does it go and I'll do my best to explain in terms she can unserstand but yet not move away from actual names of parts and function.

She will always say just before going back to the living room "when I get big grandpa, I'm going to help you fix all them cars!" :)

I almost can't wait until she can!!! B)

She did a great job! She is a cutie, definitely will be a heartbreaker (especially if she builds better than the boys!!! :lol: ).

I wanted to ask about the part where you said this was painted and THEN sanded, do you mean you sanded the paint? As in to get rid of brush strokes? That's pretty cool, I didn't know that could be done, much less that it would give such slick results. I don't have an airbrush anymore so this is good news to hear if that's the case.
