Building "outside the box"

Wednesday, August 9, 2017

You might not believe this, but I get bored. Day in, day out, after 40+ years of model making it can get a bit stale seeing the same old thing on every website and contest table, hanging from the cieling or in my own display case.

Just last night at my local bar I was asked what my favorite airplane was and nearly got punched when my answer was NOT the P-51 Mustang. Like any model builder, I like the Mustang, but other than a few racing variants I am not likely to ever build another.Too many much more intersting and worthy subjects await us out there in history land. The menu is vast, if you're willing to look around and do some research.In this case, google really IS your friend.

The model pictured above is a perfect example of what keeps me interested in this wonderful passtime.Built over in the UK by James Hatch, this is the Hong Kong Models Gloster Meteor F.4 plastic kit in 1/32 scale, converted to the two seat T.7 trainer using  my resin conversion set available on this very website.

Besides being an exquisite example of the model builders craft, this build is of a unique moment in the life of an historic aircraft, finally restored to flying status , but before the inevitable re-paint as a service machine.

The finish, consisting of different types of primer and raw metal offers the builder a very challenging and eye-catching alternative to the usual stuff, and assures a model that will be an instant stand out on any contest table and in any display. You can't miss it.

It will make you think. It certainly got me all fired up when I saw it. I've been lucky enough to be around a fair number of for-real aircrat assembly lines as well as warbird restorations, and there's no shortage of otherwise boring subjects from all eras of aviation ( and automotive ) history that could be built like the model above, somewhere along the way from a pile of bits to flight...Maybe even a Mustang!

TV Shows online

You're able to see entire seasons, and perhaps even complete series can be found for streaming from a number of sources. TV networks understood that and began to offer nearly all of their TV Shows online to see it as video on demand https://fmovies-online.com/best-brand/gogoanime .

I can totally relate

Very inspiring. I imagine model building is a lot like web design - you build something beautiful out of small parts that are nothing special on their own.

So Cool!

I can relate

As a mechanic ( Click Here ), I can relate to the natural curiosity and desire to tinker with model airplanes. I got to where I am today because I was really fond of tinkering with toy cars as a kid.

I remember model building fondly

I remember receiving a model truck for Christmas at my Great-Grandparents home. This was in the early 90's and I was 10 or 11.

I remember it was a gift from my Uncle Dave. There was quite a few things in the gift box, but what I remember most is that truck. I took all those things into the back toy/tv room away from the parents and started to assemble it. I still remember the smell of the room in Mommom and Poppop's house.

Today I own a Chimney Sweeping company in Buffalo, NY. What I like is that I can clean and service those rooms where similar memories are made.

I'm glad people like you carry on that tradition.

Love it ... concrete repair guy

Is that an actual model you guys made. The picture ... or stock photo.

Love it.

Just getting into this hobby.

And enjoying it a ton.

color scheme is great

I like how the toy plane's color scheme perfectly matche's the website's color theme. Is this pre-planned in any way? Palm Desert Concrete Contractors

Nice

I think parents should encourage their children to build model kits more, instead of leaving them alone with video games(which are not inherently bad, but everything in moderation, as they say). Building model kits teaches very useful kids. general contractor
