I've got the bestest wifey ever. She's into my racing,r/c racing and now into modeling.she has built a few snaptites and wants to do her first full blown build without any help from me haha. She wanted me to make her a w.I.p thread so figures why not. More to come.

You are a lucky man! This world needs more female modelers. They quite often have an even better eye for details than we do. Best of luck!

She's great. An I agree 100% woman have a real eye for stuff and also don't get pissed as fast as I (we) do when it don't go right.

I think it's awesome that your wife is into model building. I have that Charger kit and plan on building it with a Hemi I have from a dragster that is missing parts. Good luck little lady and enjoy yourself. More women should get into this hobby. Looking forward to seeing the finished project.

Awesome job on both! Did she paint the 'Vette, or was it molded in purple plastic?

Moulded in purple just helped her do a good polish and wax on it, came out pretty nice for no paint.

This is awesome. Lucky, lucky man you are sir! Women can definitely have a better eye for detail. Not too much into Ferrari's but the Vette is gorgeous! I'll be following along for sure on this and your 1/12 Camaro. Good luck to both of you!

Excellent job Mrs. Deering, your builds look fantastic especially the Vette, so I don't forsee any problems with you doing the Charger!! I think it's great that you guys share an interest in the same hobby, Keep up the great work guys!!      ;)  :)

I often get "You're so funny" when I share my modeling progress with my wife.

She used to build too, but she found other hobbies she enjoys more. I must admit it was fun while it lasted when she would build across the bench from me.

Yeah, turned out my wife was a natural at airbrushing. She'd watch me, then copy.
Come to think of it, it was about the time I had her start cleaning it up after she sprayed that she started getting "tired" of building...
