    i used to as a teenager build upto 3 kits an evening including painting them ,finishing them off the next day with transfers,detailing etc much to the annoyance of my parents as they said i was anti-social spending so much time in my beloved shed(they didn't like the smell of the paint/glue],i learn't how to make very clean models without much effort although not as detailed as the fantastic efforts shown by others on this forum,i suppose i'm still doing this although my models are now a lot larger

    This time around i thought i'd try to slow down a bit but old habits and all that,i find this site very interesting with the members being very skilled and resourceful in building such detailed models of subjects something i will not be able to replicate myself due to my nature of not building things slow enough,although my bigger projects are of a better quality,

    Take your time, look at the finesse of the finish, and, even if not detailed, your models can be as good as your vehicle restoration. It's a very similar genre - just a lot smaller!
    Attention to the basics of construction and finish will make the difference between a 'thrown together' model, and a masterpiece of miniature replication.
