Obviously I’ll build and paint it. He will get to have the finished item on his bed room book case. He’s very good with “ornaments” (apart from the wooden owl incident) so I don’t think it will get smashed to bits.
Thinking of going for this.
If he shows any interest I’ll get him a 1/72 one for about a fiver and let him have a go himself. The long term aim is to build a Tamiya RC car together, but I’m not letting either of us loose on £150 worth until we’ve both proved we have da skilz.
I remember doing the same thing with my dad at about the same age. We both had Hawker Hurricanes. His looked brilliant. Mine was a mess, but who cares. I still remember it almost 40 years later and went on to make dozens of them over the next 10 years.
What did you make with your dad?
