Iâ€™m a newbie builder and I want to THANK YOU for this wonderful resource! Iâ€™m 43 years old, and am getting back into building after a 30 year absence. Iâ€™ve learned SO much over the past two days, itâ€™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 heâ€™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 heâ€™ll become proud of his/our builds and gain more confidence as he becomes a young man.
I havenâ€™t invested in an air compressor system yet, but itâ€™s on my wish list. From what Iâ€™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 Iâ€™ve already received, just by browsing the forum! This is an incredible resource!!
