Some non-train model building



One of the things I want to teach my kids about modeling in general is that the fun in the hobby is not buying stuff it’s the building stuff. So one of my oldest’s (Luke, 10) Christmas presents was a Revell kit of a Camaro ZL1.


This model was a pretty good starter for him, there were some parts that could be painted (different engine components etc, the body was already painted) but we opted not to this time around.

Fun was had, we spent a couple hours together, and Luke ended up with a cool model and a little brother that thought it was pretty cool he built a car. I foresee more of these models in my future and some of the glue-less snap together models for Jacob (5).
