New to the hobby!
Posted by jlee9 on Monday, April 03, 2017 11:15 AM

Good morning everyone,

I'm just entering this hobby as my 7 year old has started liking putting together models.  He started with 2 of the snap together kits and wants to go to the next level.  I've already posted a thread asking some basic questions and I thank everyone for their answers.  My son likes to do model cars and we love going to thrift stores like Value village and looking for untouched model kits (we found 3 yesterday, 2 were partially started and one was still in shrink!!).  Hopefully, our first build will be the first of many.

Lastly, if any of you have any "I wish I knew this when I started" tips, those would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Joe

Welcome to the forum. Great to see a Dad & son combo. Enjoy your time with him. I just got back into the hobby after around 50 years and spend time with my grandson building kits. He's still on the snap kits. I'm letting him do just about everything himself. So far so good. You guys have fun, That's what it's all about!


On the bench - Right now, a mess.
