I wouldn't call it much of an introverted hobby as it is mostly a one-man operation as are most hobbies, but I have met a lot of interesting people when I'm in hobby stores or at model competitions. So there's a bit of interaction there. Then again, it's like painting or photography... often a solitary endeavor.
Referring to the act of doing the kit itself...preferably you don't want to be disturbed by calls or any other external intervention when you are in a particular state trying to attach that delicate part...Get what I mean? LOL...that's the introverted part of it...As a hobby of course it is not really introverting as you seek interaction in regards to getting tips and advices. In scale modelling you try to get into the stuff paying attention to details requiring concentration, in Music you get yourself out thru your instrument...

i agree on the build part.

especially when i'm so into the cutting, sanding and gluing parts...i tend to skip meals when i'm on a particularly good part of the build...plus the smell of the adhesive  >:D >:D >:D

Sounds like comparing apples with oranges, but its the experience of taking it on both, they may taste differently but all the same they feed you to your satisfaction...

I stopped with this hobby due to sanitary issues with my family at home; fumes, mess and all that. Probably when I will get my own place, I may dedicate a room for this.  Sadly, this hobby has to be put on hold for now :(

Yeah, the fumes of painting does tend to alienate one from the rest of his family, esp. when airbrushing. Time for a spray booth I guess. sigh...

I actually get you but... have you ever been in a sort of group build?

Granted that now, group builds are often done virtually through the internet, I remember a time when I would build at the same time in the company of my cousins. Usually our dads would buy us kits during the summer and we would scurry to the nearest hobby shop for paints. At times, there would be a sort of production line where I would paint the interiors while my cousin would paint the pilots/figures because that was his strong point. Those were good times.

@KitC

hmm i'm the only one in our family (extended included) who dabbles with this hobby. my father got me started and my cousins don't appreciate because they say they can't play with these and stuff. whatever  :razz:

i love the smell of plastic cement and as a young boy i would open one and take a whiff  >:D >:D >:D


still deciding if i'll go with a car or plane kit right now  :) do you have glass cases for your models? that's one thing i hate, dust on the models plus i'm deathly allergic to dust as well... :-P

Funny thing I used an aquarium to some of my stuff, only the armours though, its the aircraft that occupies so much space...I think clear acrylic plastic sheets are much cheaper to box them up, I bought about 2 meter cost about 400 but its enough to make at least 5 top box cover for a 1:48 aircraft just some cutting and gluing and a wood base...

The dimsum one  :-D is right about aircraft taking up a lot of space. This is one reason to go navy when building planes... at least you can fold their wings!  :-P

As an example, I have a 1/48 B-1B Bone that's almost a meter long when completed. Sadly, it remains unbuilt due to lack of hangar space. I'm planning on some sort of coffee table display with LED spotlights to display the beast. A recent Kinetic E-2C means this will be built with wings folded back, and Hasegawa SH-3 will most likely be built with blades and tail folded.

Unfortunately, This also means that my B-24G, B-29A, B-25D, B-26B, SR-71A, YF-12A, U-2R, Ju-188E1... and other lengthy, long-spanned 1/48 monsters will probably need part of the NAIA tarmac just to display them all. Makes me want to shift to tanks, cars and motorcycles sometimes. I have an uncle who did just that - mostly 1/16 Tamiya Harleys and Kawasakis all ensconced in a glass door cupboard-type display. Beautiful. Then again, he also had those 1/24 Airfix Me-109 and Spitfire that were huge!

Makes me want to consider those 1/32 Revell Ju-88 and He-219.  Or maybe I just shift to Bandai Gundam :-D

Or maybe go swing-wing, which limits you to the aforementioned B-1, F-14, MiG-23/27, and Tornado.

There are also ships, but the 1/350 monsters like the recent Yamato mean a rather large 'drydock' requirement.

Or a 1/72 B-36 Peacemaker, 1/72 B-52D...  :-D

I'm actually waiting for a 1/48 B-52, Tu-95, and Tu-160 to complement the B-1B. If you think those are big, my Italeri 1/48 AC-130A is another space hog. I'm gonna need a bigger place to live in.  :-P

Sir KitC! kumusta?! good to finally meet you (Gian introduced you sa office.) Anyway, para hindi OT, my father is a scale model builder, and he's been doing it for about 27 years. i've been involved with a couple of his works, and hindi ito madali.
Hindi dapat nakakapagod mag-Philmusic.

Bro sa start talaga di ka ma-satisfy, marami mistakes kasi lacking pa sa technique, in the long run makuha mo rin yan and but can be a bit addicting, the key is in the painting, marami resources na rin sa net in how to paint, using spray cans or airbrush, detailing ang nagpapaganda diyan...

yup practice practice pero i might stick with military kits since madali lang din kumuha ng supply ng kits either sa lils or special toy center sa festival mall.. compare sa car kits  :-)

Military kits mas challenging, ultimo details ng mga gasgas or dents for example sa mga tanks pde mo gawin, maganda book reference si Shepard Paine military scale modeling madami tips dun, am not sure baka may ma-download ka sa net ng pdf file. Yung ginawa mo tank pde pa i-detail yan, you can use brush and detail paints, matt black, gun metal, yun can use pastel color or chalk, madami household item sa tabi tabi mo lang jan mgamit mo, mga pencil lead na pinantasa para sa mga exhaust sa engines, dirt sa body, etc,...
