How To Questions and Answers
Shares Model Building Techniques
Got a how to question?
Building a scale model whether it is a car, a plane or a train, takes a lot of how-to resources and developing them is bound to raise a question or two. Whether you are a newbie or an old hand at modeling; either scratch or kit questions come up that need a ready answer.
Please submit your How To question below.
I strive to do my best based on knowledge and experience in model building of the past four decades. There are several resources I rely on to help with answers so I probably won’t be the quickest.
You can count on me to try to answer any modeling question even questions regarding pricing, modeling techniques and provide model kit purchasing tips or cautions as warranted.
