Having Fun , making kits for my boy
Posted by tony in china on Friday, April 8, 2022 12:35 PM

its good to be getting back into the hobby a lot more now , my boy is 7 so has inherited his fathers liking for GI Joe( Action Man for us Brits!), small toy soldiers and planes and tanks . 

Living in shenzhen china means can access kits very cheaply in general , and its good to have fun as when the kits are for a kid to play with you can simplify a bit and can do paint schemes that look fun rather than be historically accurate

Hello and welcome from Ohio (USA). My son and I build models together too. I think that is one of the best moments in the hobby. I'm glad to hear that you get to experience it with your son.

Welcome from northwestern wisconsin. I remember doing kits with my father many years ago  and I loved every minute of it. Glad you are sharing those moments with him. Looking forward to your builds together.
