    How to decide if this is something for you

    You need to have patience and a steady hand.

    How to prepare this

    1. Decide what you want to model. Fore example buildings, rockets, boats, airplanes, dolls, dollhouses, cars, robots.
    2. Decide if it should be functional. If it should be able to do something such as move,fly,float or if it should be just for display.
    3. Find out if there are someone you know who also do this and make sure you use the same size/formats so you can swap parts and try out each others models.

    Typically involves

    Buying model kits or parts. Assembling together, gluing and painting.
