Model making

Just done another Metal Earth model, this one was quite easy in comparison to he Lunar Module!

I like these, they’re a bit of fun, really.

One day, I’ll start on the Airfix kits I have in the loft.

Never heard of these. Quite tempted to give one a try.
Thanks for posting.

More of a survival guide than anything else, perversions on the go are simple to make and in most cases safe to use. Mr. MWS is looking forward to the timed publication on Valentines day.

Bought this perhaps 3 yrs ago, it lives behind the sofa. Hopefully the radiator will have dried out the paints and glue I bought with it.

Quite fancy buying of those Earth Metal kits, being low profile will be easy to store.

Lol, ever the practical thinker, G :rofl::rofl::rofl:

Although you’re not wrong, they take up a lot of loft space!

One day I’ll get round to buying an airbrush kit to do it properly.

Been eyeing up self build Nitro RC cars over Christmas as well.

Given that this is a thread about model making and wanking I’m surprised no-one’s mentioned this yet

Found this while looking at the metal kits.

I made one of those, I recall it was tricky, but I think I was probably only about 8 at the time

I was about 12. Used to go and watch them leaving Pegwell bay

Had quite a few bits left over so called it a day
