Modeling day with the grandsons
We have our grandkids for a few days while our teacher daughters prepare for school to start next week. Our granddaughter and my wife toddled off to her gymnastics practice, leaving me with two somewhat bored young boys, ages 7 and 9, who needed something to do. A trip to Hobby Lobby came up, so off we went.
These are the 1/24 Airfix Quick Build McLaren P1 kits. There are several cars and airplanes in the series, so there’s bound to be something for everyone. About thirty parts molded in colored plastic, so they don’t need to be painted. They are assembled like Legos, but sure don’t look like them when they’re done. The boys had a ball putting them together. Takes just long enough that they stayed interested, but not so long that they got bored, probably about 45 minutes or so.
With the discount coupon from the store, they came out to about 11 bucks each.
So if you have a younger self that might be interested in taking up the hobby, this might be a good way to get them started. I had just as much fun as the boys did…
