Make something positive out of cov19
Posted by jkitman on Thursday, March 19, 2020 8:54 PM

Since most of the world is in a terrible state right now ,it is a perfect time to build some models. Since a lot of the countries are on lockdown, fight back by refusing to get down about it.Start building and thumb your nose at Cov19. Post them in the gallery! Then maybe we can have victory shows all over the country. What do you think?

Sonds like a good idea to me. I'm a beginner and I'm using the time to learn. My first model will not be displayed at any show unless there is a comedy section.

Actually,  thats even better. This is a great place to get advice and ideas to help make your first model turn out well. Take pics and post them. Take pics as you progress to you second and third models and youll be able to see you improvements.  I found the hardest thing to get used to, is taking your time and building clean. Being disciplined about keeping your hands clean and letting the paint dry thoroughly before proceeding to the next step.  I usually build  another part of the model while the paint is drying on a previously built piece. Also, I use a toothpick to apply glue so that I have better control over the amount I apply on a part. Also, learning how to paint is real important,  both hand painting and spray painting.  Ive seen a lot of real nice spray can paint jobs,so you dont have to purchase an airbrush right away. Good luck.

I'm with you on that. My day job is in retail and building helps me in more ways than one. I plan to post pics soon.

I aiways look forward to seeing what other people are doing. Thats the great thing about modeling.  Theres more ways to build a car as there are conversations.  And I like to see how somebody progresses from beginner to experienced modeler.  Have fun and never work over your head. I recently started building again after a year or so off.  I didnt rush myself and it seems to have paid off. I really enjoy it.Its a very rewarding hobby.
