Article Suggestion
Posted by Gerard on Tuesday, February 10, 2004 9:24 PM
I have always thought it would be very interesting to see an article on one of the model factories, the HOW of kit making. It has always boggled me how perfectly in scale good kits are. HOW do they do that? How are drawings scaled down? How are they transferred to steel dies, and how are those dies made, anyway? Etc.

FSM ran an article on that a few years ago (with Revevll-Monogram, I believe) and when the timing works out, I'm looking to do something similar for Scale Auto. Thanks for the suggestion.

There was an SAE article a while back, but mostly about the tooling and master molds. Interesting! I, too, would like to see a "start to finish" on how one is built.

I married my wife for her looks, just not the ones she gives me when I bring home new model kits.
