That is such a hoot! my dad would bring home kits for me when I was that little, you never forget. Great job!..The first kit I remember was the old Revell PT boat...the i/64th scale.
Get him kits for good report cards, Easter..he will build 'em.
Exellent! My dad would do the same. He would go out of town on business and bring me the latest Aurora! I got my son into modeling when he was young and we would build side by side on the kitchen table! Even my daughter would build with us from time to time! Please everyone..keep passing this dying hobby along! With all of the competition from computer and video games sometimes it seems to be a loosing battle!
It's so good to see another young kid working on a model. My own son, now 17, has never really gotten into it, although he built a few kits when he was younger. He is, however, my biggest fan when it comes to my own work. He always comes up to my bench to see what I'm working on, check out the details and such. I wish he was a model guy too, but you can't have everything I guess. He is about to become an Eagle Scout, he's more athletic and outdoorsy than I have ever been my whole life, and he's just a great young man, so I can't complain one bit! Best to you and your son! Keep him at it! :thumbsup:
Mitchellmania - I only bought 1 of each (they're around $35 CAD here). I may pick up another set the next time I'm in the States, though.
For those of you who've bought Gobby - don't glue his legs to his torso until you've completed the main glider parts and test fitted his feet in the holes. I made the mistake of completing Gobby first then starting on the glider and his feet don't sit very well (they've already broken off once).
