    Modelling for yourself doesn't mean putting parts together and applying a paint only. Also a long distance to a nearby hobby shop is an obstacle that can't be overcome. It is enough to look around your home for instance.I'm sure there are stocks that can be useful for modelling. For example ladies stockings that are very nice for all wires etc.... Concerning styrene sources....joghourt cups, margarine boxes, old CD/DVD,tape boxes, even these colourful ones used for Tik-Tak sweets. These clear boxes used for wrapping goods are great material for all "glassy" parts including cockpit conopies. A brassy wires and many more.....really.

    But I agree with Wayne. Enjoy and keep working. :thumbright: :)

    Being "green" is nothing wrong. Just you need to be pushed into the proper path. :lol:
