Apparently, models only are for experienced adults?

I definitly like the idea of those, Cheapish ( not looking at shipping ) and easy to plug together. Not a big fan of glueing the models together but I like to paint them.

I do want on another note like to point out that those are 3D models. You could 3D print those models but sadly WG decided to take legal actions against makers of STL datas of Tanks. For your info an STL is the data needed for a 3D printer to print your 3D model. A lot of Tanks where being shared ( for free mind you) on thingyverse and other 3d printer sites. WG took legal actions and copyright claimed all of them. For more info go over here. Its a pitty WG takes such a move rather then promoting things like the making of personal 3D models.

 

Kind Regards

Well, this certainly puts this action into a different light if it's all true.....

 

If people take WoT models, edit them and give them away for free, this falls under fair use. Even if the basis was a model of a game, doesn't matter. As soon as it's changed (enough) this stops being relevant.

DMCA'ing these models is therefore invalid and a dubious to boot.

Nice, and not only for kids, I think :) Used to have a massive collection of plastic models as a kid, but then I moved out and my idiotic sister destroyed them before I had a big enough apartment of my own to store them.

Today there is not enough time to spend many hours glueing together a model. So, these will fit perfectly to add into my *new* model collection :D

Actually seems like a good start into models for people like me who are amateurs! What do you guys think? :)

if these are for kids, are those cobi things for the yet unborn?

 

also, I still prefer the Flames of War models (get the resin ones before they replace all with plastic! ;) )

My career as modelist was ended when someone sat upon my very first (and only one) model I ever completed (a Lancaster bomber) ...

... I was 11-12 years old, the effort to assemble the model was great (it wasn't for beginners) ... and the frustration even greater.

 

:facepalm: ................ :)

A good start to model collecting. I do not know about good start to modelling, since that is a very complicated skill. If you want to start modelling, buy a regular model kit, paint, glue, brushes etc.

I tried to order one of these, but the Italeri website only lets you choose UPS to my country and that costs 15 euros. For sure I am not going to pay 15 euros to receive an item costing 9 euros :D

Cobi kits have massive amount of parts, the more complicated ones have 600 parts and up. Not for little ones.

get a proper model...the whole thing is about fiddling around and not about clipping cheap plastic together...this just the typical zeitgeist item for kiddos so that they Edited in case tablet, smartphone and console don´t work anymore..."here buddy, help yourself, I´m a go get wasted..."

or wait...how old are you to ask in such a naive manner?

Glue? I thought you just needed a catwalk and some portfolio pictures... Is the glue for sniffing? :confused:

sounds more complicated than they look. but you must admit, cobi kits don't actually look good.
