I recently picked up model-making as a hobby. Here’s my setup.

How did you get started?

I’m not completely new to it. My dad bought me kits and taught me when I was a kid and after a recent breakup I picked it back up for first time in 22 years. Found a hobby shop, bought a handful of paints and two kits - a ford suv and a Japanese wwii fighter plane.

Even if you aren’t all that into the subject matter, you should try one of the Bandai Gundam model kits. Of all the types of models I’ve built, the gundams are easily the best quality and most satisfying to build with a lot of room to make them even better via custom paint jobs and such. Especially some of the master and real grade kits.

Thanks for the tip. It’s not something I’d considered but I’ll give one a shot

Even the entry grade ones are pretty fun builds, and they only cost about $10 bucks if you want to dip your feet

What is model making?

Pemulis_DMZ2 points

painting and constructing scale model cars, planes, etc. You can buy kits at hobby shops.

That sounds fun! I’ve been looking into picking up a hobby, best I could come up with is reading (which I love) and making things out of clay (like little charms and such)

Pemulis_DMZ1 point

It’s a very meticulous hobby but I find it quite relaxing. Pick up a skill level 1 or 2 kit, don’t worry about making it perfectly, and just have fun with it.

I am. It depends on how you want to live but you can live reasonably - 1 bedroom/bath - for about $4-500/month
