First Kit Suggestions
Posted by Eberline on Monday, January 16, 2017 6:55 PM

Hey all,

Anyone have suggestions for a first kit?  I'd like to do something form Star Wars!

Regards,

Dave

Well, the new Bandai kits are a little expensive but they seem to fall together without much work at all. The A-Wing I've been working on is snap-fit and molded so you don't have to paint it though you really should since plastic unpainted looks like... well unpainted plastic.

I've been eyeing those kits.  I would like to do something that requires glue and not a ton of paint and/or painting skill.  You think those might be a good start?

Regards,

I'd have to agree with Gamera.  Those Bandai kits look awesome.  I have heard, and seen that they go together extremely well.  I'm looking into getting them myself.

And to answer your question about painting.  Don't have to do any if you don't want to.  Weathering about the only thing you might want to do.  Here are a couple of reviews I found on them.  Like I said, they look awesome.
