Model Tanks: Finding Your Skill Level

Sep 5, 2008
With so many different types of model tanks available today sometimes it can be difficult deciding which one is for you. One of the largest deciding factors should be the skill level that you feel comfortable with. You can choose as easy or as difficult a model as you wish. If you are new to building models then it may be best to begin with an easy level and work your way to the more advanced. One of the easiest levels to begin with is the one that includes snap together models.

These models will usually come with everything you will need to complete them. Since they snap together rather than using cement you will be able to put them together rather quickly. The plastic is usually molded in one solid color and can be painted if you wish but you do not have to do so. The most that is required for this most basic of skill levels is to assemble the parts, add the decals if you so choose and then you are done.

The more advanced models can get rather in depth. An expert level model could conceivably require a good deal of time and patience. It may have several moving parts and can even take weeks to assemble. The parts may all come in a primer gray color and may require you to paint them so that they look authentic. They may come with some decals, but at that level you might choose to add your own. There are many different skill levels in between so it is quite easy to find one that will suit your current ability.

If you are giving the model tank as a gift then you should ask someone close to the recipient what skill level may be best. Also, you should take their age into account. You would not buy an eight year old a master level model kit, nor would you buy a master builder a snap together model. If you want the gift to be a challenge then you should put a bit of effort into finding out what would suit them best.

No matter who you are buying the model tank for you will have more than a few options facing you. Whether you want a snap together or cemented model, or if you would like to paint it or not, there are many models out there to choose from.
