I collect scale model cars, but I haven't built any myself. The only thing I built was a LEGO Trchnik Porsche, which was a lockdown project. I really enjoyed it and I'd love to do another. I just don't have the space.

How long do you typically spend on a build?

Thanks man  :azn:

Ive got a few cars I've built , also been collecting since I was young too.

That's a really good question... All depends on work and how many parts there are to a kit, typically I'd hazard a guess at around 2 months at the moment from start to finish.

You clearly have a lot of patience. Must be be real labour of love.

I found it quite therapeutic and relaxing - a form of escapism - because you're so focused on the build. Is that the same for you?

Do you have enough room to display them all?

I was going to say the same. I used to be into models but not this detailed.

Spitfire I was building a couple of years ago never finished. I put the undercarriage on upside down and haven’t done the decals. Just another botched job lol

It can be a bit of a labour of love at times, other times it's so damn frustrating dealing with tiny pieces  :laughcrying: But yes on the whole I find it quite relaxing.

I have nowhere near enough room  :laughing

Nowhere near enough room is probably more room than I have. At least you have a work bench of some description. I don’t even have space for that  :rotfl2:
