Hi Gang, Getting back into Model Building

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

Built lots of models when I was younger, Funny Cars, Tall Ships with rigging, Military planes, etc.

Now looking forward to getting back into building some of the scale model cars that I've collected over the years.  Quick question, does anybody follow the instructions step by step, or is there a better way to stage a build depending upon painting, detailing, etc.?

Thanks, and looking forward to learning to build better models!

Welcome to our plastic playground Franz.  

Some people follow the directions step by step.  Advanced, experienced builders will jump around to different assemblies based on the type of vehicle they are working on, and whether or not they are modifying it in any way.  Do what is "comfortable" for you.  As your skills and techniques get better, you'll find the way that is easiest for you.
