Yeah, garage kits are model kits that come with all the pieces, of which you have to assemble, glue and paint together yourself.


Example of what you'd find in a typical garage kit

I used to do aircraft back in the day. Miss doing it, but I've got no room to do it or place the finished product.

I've made a mustang, a spitfire mark II, and ... some other American WWII plane that I can't remember.

I should post some pics, though some of the decals are torn.

I could never get the paint to stay...

Havent done a model since i was like... 12.. might go to the store and buy one. I imagine it would be pretty lethargic.
