Topics I've Started

Have you ever had that uneasy feeling.....

......when you hand a seven year old an xacto knife.



My grand son wanted to try his hand at a model "just like grandpa". We've already built a snap kit. Now he wants to do  a "real" model.


I know he needs to learn, but when he starts using a tool that can practically cut his finger off, it makes me a little uneasy. I stay very close, and "coach " him through every step , so that there are no need for a trip to the emergency room. But it still makes me nervous.


How about you.... what experiences have you had trying to teach a little one our hobby?

I'm Building a weathered '41 Chevy pickup. I want to use some decals to represent a work truck, and want the decals to look beaten. faded and old. Any suggestions?
