Fat Fingers and Tweezers

Yesterday, 03:20 AM

So in light of the recent what scale do you build thread,

I realized that some may build larger scale models just because it is easier. 

My hands are not as steady as they once were, and I have adjusted to the scale I like to build by doing less fiddly kits and not getting bogged down with details. 

All that building for shows or cramming as much stuff in as possible was more of a chore than a hobby. By knowing my own abilities, yet still pushing myself to do better I have discovered that modeling can be fun! So no matter what subject or scale you build, what have you done to help your model hobby continue?

 

Magnifiers, clips, lighting, tweezers, tape? Change in scale, subject or style?

1960 Chevy Camino Restoration

​Another Ebay find, this one is in very nice condition. The chassis and tub appear to have not seen paint and the body is partially cleaned up, some badges have been removed and it needs some gentle work done. while my other Camino will be a custom this one will be mostly stock in appearance. Modelhaus bumpers just need slight tweaking to fit better.

 

Fresh from the box...

Club Cuda Project

08 March 2015 - 06:42 AM

Started a Club Build this weekend. Working on the chassis and stance at this point. Re-worked the front suspension to lower it, cut out the rear for some PPP Modified tires and got the rear axle cut down, pinned and glued back together. Gonna have to re-locate the spring mounts and work on a coil set up.
