  • Building models

    Is anyone here into model building? I mean really cutting, gluing, painting, etc. I wasn't, but I got a SN Brussels Airlines A330 (1:144) for my birthday, and I'm really starting to like it! I'll let you know when he's done...

    Grtz,

    Nicki

      Cool!

      I like building them too. I have a A340-300 Lufthansa (REVEL) and a Junkers (REVEL) Lufthansa. And i am building a F-50 of the Spain cost guards.


      I also like building some other things. Trucks anyone? 1:24?
      Lufthansa is the BEST!

        I enjoy building them if I have the time to. They require a lot of patience.

        Here is a pic of the latest one I made:

                I used to build them, but after moving twice in six months, I found out that no matter how well you pack them, plastic models don't handle moves very well. To that point, I had been building them and buying the diecast ones. After factoring in how much time it took to build these kits as compared to the diecasts models, I quit building them. I almost bought a Concorde kit yesterday, but relented when I found a diecast plane I had been on the lookout for.

                  I see some very talented modelers here . I build models too but not aircraft at the moment. I have to agree it takes a lot of time and patience but the skill comes with time!

                    I build card models. It has taken a few years to get to the level of realism and accuracy the designs have now. If you're interested, check out my website - I have just under 1,500 different designs on it. (Click on the link in my signature).

                        Some places to look for airliner model kits, paints and other supplies are at your local hobby shop, online stores, or e-bay. I got mine off e-bay . If you are new to this, don't get frustrated if the model doesn't turn out the way you wanted it to. Remember, it's a bit of skill and LOTS of patience!

                        Cheers,
                        James

                          Yes, I do! In fact I've taken the hobby to another level. I make airliner decals and you've probably heard of me. Ever heard of Flying Colors Decals http://www.flyingcolorsdecals.com??? You can find my decals all over the World.

                          Recently I started a website just for airliner modeling http://www.airlinercafe.com. I'm currently working on the model gallery so please send me your model photos. You can send them to [email protected] Or register to the site and upload them to your Personal File space and I can grab them from there. It's as easy as that. Please include a little description and relevant info like: scale, kit, decals, etc. I'd be happy to add them to the gallery and while you're at it, please register for the site and participate, it will make me feel better.
                          Regards,

                            I agree, I love the airigami models. They are fun to build and so far I have built around 20 of them!

                              I built a couple 10 dollar models back in 8th grade for a project for school. Built a P-51 and a F-16.

                              The F-16 is now packed away in some box back home

                              The P-51 met its fate down in Atlanta, GA when my cousin and I matched it up against a couple M-60 FIreworks!!
