Scale modeling is fun, challenging, and tedious. It sometimes to take as long to build a scale model as it does to restore a vehicle/boat/aircraft. There are some real "Nit Pickers" in the modeling community. However, if something of historical value is learned and preserved it is well worth the effort.

Where do these guys get all the stuff to build these? I've only ever found one MB model at Hobby Lobby, & while it turned out well, I couldn't find stuff to add to make it interesting.
