    Thanks so much for the advice! The stepson and I completed our first build this past weekend. Sure, I was 2 weeks doing the prep/painting work, but we had a BLAST assembling the model! He is so proud of himself, and the wife got some GREAT photos of us along the way. I've got to pick up some acrylic spray, because the enamel drying process is tedious. I'll stay tuned and enjoy all of the experts builds, tips and tricks! Thank you guys SO much! - Marty Cincinnati, OH

    I’m a newbie builder and I want to THANK YOU for this wonderful resource! I’m 43 years old, and am getting back into building after a 30 year absence. I’ve learned SO much over the past two days, it’s been absolutely mind blowing! I got back into this hobby because I want to see my stepson (mature 8 yr. old) learn something about cars, while spending quality time with me. I give him time on the computer and the Playstation, but I feel like he’s wasting his childhood playing silly games. I believe that (for kids) model building will enhance the life skill of following directions and patience! I also believe that he’ll become proud of his/our builds and gain more confidence as he becomes a young man. I haven’t invested in an air compressor system yet, but it’s on my wish list. From what I’ve read, it looks like a lot of folks are using a Dremel tool (or equivalent) for sanding. Will you folks please give me some advice on what tools I should purchase to give me the opportunity to make better builds? Thanks again for all the help I’ve already received, just by browsing the forum! This is an incredible resource!! - Marty - Cincinnati , OH
