How Do I Build A Model Car Kit?
Building a model car kit can be a fun and rewarding experience. But for complete beginners, where do you start?
If you’ve never built a model car before, there are a few tools and accessories you’ll need. Fortunately, all of these are available from Hobbyco! With decades of experience serving our customers online and in-store, we understand exactly what’s required to put together your new miniature ride. Check out our range of hobby supplies and contact our friendly customer service team if you have any questions.
In addition to the right tools, you will also need patience and potentially some help from a friend or family member. While your model car kit will include specific instructions, the general steps to putting together your new mini car are as follows:
- Read the instructions! This may seem like an obvious step, but it is important to understand what you are supposed to do before you start doing it. Take some time to familiarise yourself with the steps and the vocabulary used in the instructions. If you have any questions, there’s a huge model car kit community available online or you can always contact our customer service team.
- Gather your supplies. Make sure you have everything you need before you start. It can be frustrating to have to stop in the middle of a project to go find something you need.
- Start with the big pieces. If possible, assemble the broad structure before starting to work on the minute details. It’s usually easier to approach a build this way.
- Take your time. This is not a race! Building a model car kit can be relaxing and enjoyable if you take your time and pay attention to detail.
- Paint and finish your car. This is the fun part! You can paint your car any colour or combination of colours you want. You can also add decals or other details to make your car unique. Be sure to check first whether you will need to prepare the model for painting using a primer.
Building a model car kit can be a fun way to spend an afternoon or two. By following these simple steps, you can create a beautiful model car that you can be proud of.
