Getting the kids hooked...


Recommended Posts

My two eldest have been asking to build a model for a while now, so I bought 2 Revell snap together 57 Chevys, and told them the could pick a paint color out of my stash and I would paint the body but they had to do everything else. They really had fun.  I need to find some more cool snap kits for them, there's not a great selection. And, by the way, the Revell 57 snap kit was pretty nice! I wanted to build one and foil all the chrome.

Besides the clean looking models this is a great way to spend some quality time with your children. Love seeing grins like this on young faces.

A couple of ‘57’s worthy of being proud of ...  and seeing the happiness on the faces of two kids who built them really warms my heart. I’m sure these are the best pics I’ll see all day😁😁😁

While the snappers can turn out nice in the hands of us grey haired builders, I believe their original intent was to apply to beginning builders and congrats to you for doing exactly that. Keep looking for them and get your kids hooked. I would say both turned out very nice and they look proud of them.

I'm glad your children are wanting to get into model building. I wish more younger people would consider hobbies such as model building and not video games and other technology based activities.
