Every kid — and many grownups — love a plastic model kit.
To assemble these properly takes time... and patience. Lots of it. But after all those painstaking moments, eventually, you can show off your model. Oh, and don't forget to paint it in the colors you prefer. Did you know top modelers often do this before they even begin to assemble the model?
Models have been big business since their introduction. The first kits were introduced around 1936 by a British company called Frog. Other companies soon began making modeling kits, including Tamiya, Revell, Airfix and AMT.
Often, model aircraft kits are in 1:72 scale. Plastic model kits of vehicles, however, are usually around 1:25 although it can differ, depending on the manufacturer and the desired size of the finished model. Believe it or not, there is a lot of detail that goes into these kits and particular attention is paid to the interior of the vehicle and the engine. In fact, the engine often has multiple parts that need to be assembled.
