Hello Lizards,

I want to make another thread, to help drum up discussion here. Does anybody here like to build and paint model kits of any kind? I'm a big fan of vehicles and mecha anime, and I want to start branching my hobby from 2D to 3D. Many years ago, when I was in high school, I built a German tank from a model kit. I also painted it. It's very enjoyable to see a creation come to life, especially if you aren't good at art/drawing.

Currently I'm thinking about buying (https://www.amazon.com/Bandai-Hobby-Banshee-Unicorn-Gundam/dp/B00IAGUM9A/ref=sr_1_2/135-0624529-0749717?ie=UTF8&qid=1509587422&sr=8-2&keywords=gundam+model+kits&dpID=51VF57rYpeL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch) and building it, as I'm a NEET with a ton of spare time. Anyone else build and paint something similar? I was thinking that I would take pictures of my work, and periodically post it here, for others to enjoy.


I can't say I do any of those things, but I do lust after anime garage kits and custom miniatures. I like the physicality of 3D so sculpting/kitbashing in my eyes would be more fun than being accomplished at drawing.


I wish I had the talent to actually sculpt this >>353 from clay, bake it, and then paint it. I like the idea of digging clay up in my backyard, starting a fire/rudimentary kiln, and making the figure myself. 100% home-made, from the comfort of my own home.

Because this is impossible and difficult, I'll stick to models, though.


I visited my local Games Workshop today but wasn't ready to take the plunge. $85 for a box is pretty steep.


Yea I'm pretty autistic and love building these types of things, didn't know you could get them sudo-cheaply online though. might look into saving for a couple since drugs are getting boring.


Look to 3D printing, the cheaper alternative with nonetheless durable material. Local libraries tend to have 3D printers these days, and if not there's always companies who accept your design and can print it to deliver.

I don't know where you live. The only place with 3D printers I know of is the local makerspace which charges $50 a month.


Probably one of those Scandinivian countries where they have shittons of tax money to waste on stuff no one uses.

Still waiting…
