My son's first model

Recommended Posts

We went to Hobby Lobby to see what was on the shelves in the model section and my son who is big in to monster Jam right now saw the MAD MAX snap kit. He asked me if he was old enough to build it. Then said to me I could help him if he doesn't understand the instructions. I thought to myself why not he's a smart kid. We got home and got right to building after an hour and half he completed the kit and was so excited to have finished his model that he couldn't wait to show everybody. I couldn't be more proud of him.

What a great post.  I love the "he couldn't wait to show everybody" comment.  That's what we all do here!  That wonderful feeling of accomplishment and pride in your work.  Well done to your boy!

Your sons first build looks great. The best part was that you got to be there with him, sometimes moments like this are memories that last a life time.

How old is your son? My grandson will soon be 5 but I'm thinkin' of waiting 'til he's 6 to see if he has any interest in building plastic models.

Hi Nick, he is 5 years old. I hope you have a memorable time with your grandson as I did with my son.

Congratulations to your son on the fine build. I wish mine had turned out so well at that age! Lastly, high praise to you as his father, encouraging him to create something he can share, display and be continually proud of, may be the best gift, and is quite frankly the best part of this story. Thanks for sharing, this wins best post today honors.

Thanks for the reply Anthony and maybe(?) I'll start him a little earlier than 6 years old.
