A Short Buyers Guide to Model Kits in Brisbane

When it comes to model kits, here are the main things you should know.

  • Assembly is required: A plastic model is made from preformed pieces which you assemble to construct a representation of the actual subject. There is a wide range of models you can select, including military vehicles, ships, planes and cars. You can choose a kit to suit your skill level ranging from simple models that snap together through to advanced, which requires tools and adhesives.

  • Scale and size: Model kits come in numerous size scales from 1:10 to 1:2500. This number indicates how small the model is compared to the original size of the subject. Most categories have a common scale, for example, military models are usually 1:35 or 1:48, which are manageable for the average person to assemble and display. If you are building a collection, we recommend selecting models with the same scale, so you have a consistent display.

  • Tools and accessories: Depending on the skill level of your model, you may need to source some glue and tools to complete the display. The kit will indicate what’s included in the box; for example, military emblems and insignia are commonly included as decals. You should source other accessories from a model kit supplier to ensure that your paint and glue adhere to the plastic.
