Plastic Model Kits (Unassembled kits)

Hi,

Is there anybody here interested in/ working on plastic model kits (Tamiya, Revell, Academy, Italeri etc)? I'm relatively new in this field and I really like it. If there's anyone wanna share some photos of his builds please go ahead, and if there's anyone wishing to sell his unassembled kits please PM me.

All the best,

Re: Plastic Model Kits (Unassembled kits)

I used to do it back home. Its very easy and lots of fun. One piece of advice though. Paint the pieces first while they are attached to that plastic bit. So much easier and less messy

Hi Gata, thanks for the advice, I'm actually doing that already but of course not for all the parts. Painting, washing and weathering are really interesting to me. Do you have any photos to share?

Re: Plastic Model Kits (Unassembled kits)

I used to be into kit bashing, that is, assembling kits in slightly different ways to represent different prototypes to those intended by the kit manufacturer. Or just weathering them to make them look old, rusty and battered. But i haven't had time in years now. I used to do mostly railway stuff.
