‘Keep Calm and Build a Model’

Greetings Fellow Modellers!

During this highly unusual time of ‘Staying at Home‘ and ‘Keeping Safe‘, what better way could there be to pass the time* than digging that long forgotten Airfix kit out of the attic**, getting a tube of glue, some brushes and paint, rolling out newspaper on the kitchen table, turning the clock back to the 1980’s (showing my age here) and building a scale model!


Over the next few posts I’m going to put up some thoughts for basic tools and methods, review a kit or two and share some of my own work in progress. All with the aim of helping someone new or returning to this wonderful hobby get into it.

I’m also going to add a page up with some links to various websites and forums where you’ll be able to get the stuff and help you need.

So welcome to the blog, happy modelling, and please let me know how you’re getting on!


*Okay there are probably several, but this is a modelling blog so we’ll go with this 😀

**Or that newly acquired kit out of the stash…

  1. As long as you hoover up all the bits of plastic you drop on the floor it’ll be fine. And you can build me a castle. You are a dab hand at these things, after all… 😉
