Rebuilds or New Kit in General Automotive Talk (Trucks and Cars) Posted August 14 · Edited August 14 by peteski When I build models I try to get the as close to perfect as I can. I don't have much time to spend on hobbies. I rather have pristine kit to start with, and fix any problems it already has, or fix my own mistakes than "wasting" hours trying to deconstruct someone else's work, fix their mistakes, and strip paint. Unless there is a extremely important reason to rebuild a model (mine or someone else's), only new kits for me. Yet, I enjoy spending time fixing old or non working mechanical or electronic devices. I like to take them apart, figure out the problem and repair it (even if I have to fabricate some piece that can't be purchased). I'm "Mr. Fix-it" to my family and friends.
