Four Great Reasons To Collect Model Tanks

Sep 5, 2008
With so many different reasons to collect model tanks it is really hard to narrow the field down. There are, however, four very good reasons that it does make such a great hobby and should be given thought. Collecting model tanks admittedly does not qualify you to be a surgeon but it can help you to learn skills that may come in handy if you were to become one. Listed below are the top reasons why you should consider collecting model tanks.

Number one - It can take a good deal of dexterity to properly assemble a model tank. By taking up the hobby you can build your skill and grow beyond your current level. It can help you advance you fine motor skills as well as increasing your eye hand coordination. You will help to augment your sense of creativity when you begin adding details that are not called for in the original instructions that were included with the box. This will literally help you to think outside the box.

Number two - Following directions is important. We learn this concept as children but it seems to become less important as we grow older. Building models help to teach you the concept once more. It also shows you what can happen if you do not follow basic directions. It does not, however, teach that there is no room for compromise. If a change can be made that is feasible then you can easily do so.

Number three - You can pass your free time by collecting your model tanks rather than taking up a hobby that can turn into a bad habit or can waste a good deal of time as well as money. It can sometimes help you to make a profit as well. Some people love to look at models but do not have the skill necessary to assemble them. These people may pay a good deal for a high quality model tank that they have been looking for.

Number four - You can learn to interact with people from all over the world. People do not only enjoy building models here. It is a worldwide pastime. You could conceivably find yourself chatting with someone from Bangkok or Australia. You also might find yourself chatting with someone from all walks of life as building models can transcend all monetary barriers as well.

While these reasons may not be all inclusive or all important they can make a big impact in your life. They can help you learn skills you could use as the next surgeon general or as a parent caring for their little ones.
