How to Make a Plastic Model (A tutorial on the basics of model making)

I love making models. I have been doing it since I was a kid. It's a lot of fun and pretty inexpensive. Here I show you all the tips and techniques for doing a nice job of it. How to Make a Plastic Model

 

The Specific Model Builds:

 

Make a Plastic Model Huey Helicopter

This is the Marine version of the famous Huey and it is complete with armaments. Fun and easy skill level 2 build. Make a Model Helicopter

 

Make a Plastic Model PT Boat (PT-109)

Fun little project and easy to build. I take you through the steps of making this military torpedo boat. And the commander of this boat was John F. Kennedy. I tell you about the amazing story of this boat during WWII. Make PT-109

 

Make a Model Submarine

This is a wonderful little plastic model kit. I chose this one because it has the open side so you can see all the various stuff inside the sub. Fun skill level 4 which means it is a challenging build. I also have a video. Make a Model Submarine

 

Make the A-10 Warthog Plastic Model

This is a 1:48 Scale Revell model. It is a good size with some weight and detail. I take you through the steps to making this model and I have a video to go with it. Make the A-10 Warthog

 

The Amphibious Truck (Duckboat)

The duck boat (DUKW) was a multi purpose vehicle that was effective on land as a truck and in water as a boat. You can check it out here: The Duckboat model

 

Make a P51 Mustang

This is a great little plastic model kit. It is very inexpensive, easy to build and looks great. If you have never built a plastic model this one is a great first project. I have a complete tutorial and a video right here: Make a P51 Mustang
