Buying that first military model kit can be hard, so many to choose from and various scales from 1:72, 1:48, 1:32, 1:35 and upwards. Well for the beginner choose a kit that is simple, look for the number of part that make up the kit and go for a lower number. Try a Willys Jeep, small armoured vehicle or aircraft as the first project, the scale is not that imporant but I recommend a 1:72 or 1/35 scale - read the instructions carefully before starting.
Do not forget the Plastic model glue, cutting knife; paint and for first starters I recommend a set of fine hair paint brushes to suit modellers.
Weathering is an art you can adopt after you become proficient in the basics and a few kits further on - that is a special subject all on its own.
Well lets find that first model and lets get started - Please check out my Ebay Store as I carry a selection that you can start with.
