Hey guys, I have an awesome neighbor who gave me and my brother a bunch of old models from the 50's to 80's. Most are from an old models company called "Aurora". The company closed down and no longer produces these any more, they are pretty cool a bunch of planes, ships, and cars. There's one Tank too!

wow, if they are from the 50's and 80's then they have probably become valuable.

You should take a look at Flames of War, it is a wargame like Warhammer, and you still assemble and paint the miniatures yourself. [url]http://www.flamesofwar.com/[/url]
My grandpa gave me some of these years ago, and I bought one at one point. He gave me a German Half Track, a USS Forrestal Aircraft Carrier, and a Shelby Series 1 car. I bought a '66 Malibu SS. I have all the paint, tools, and stuff but I never put one of these together. Maybe that can be a little project later this year or next year.
Ha thats my zero [editline]6th August 2011[/editline] He must have been mistaken because the models are from 1945 ish to about 1963 ish.
those models could do with being washed and some weathering laid down on them.
I did several models when I was younger like a Sopwith Camel and a few tanks. Recently though I have acquired a MiG21 kit that was made in Czechoslovakia in the 80s. I don't know if I should build it or not, I'm not a very good painter.
Am i the only terrible at assembling them together?
i remember my adventure with these models [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/894430-My-first-and-last-adventure-with-Airfix-models[/url]. aw the image is broken
Really nice collection of Old Scale Models you got there!, there probably quite valuable if I was you i'd keep some in the box. Sort off topic but i'd thought id share one of my models [img]http://img607.imageshack.us/img607/3842/img0619e.jpg[/img] lol............... Sorry for all the shit on my desk, heres my jagdpanther tank, not completely painted by just me.
I love putting the parts together till the whole model is finished, but i hate the part where i have to paint the thing, cus i suck at painting D:
That's an awesome Panther D in the OP. Jenkins, where did you buy the Jagdpanther? It looks awesome with it's Zimmerit coating.

Oh man, gotta find my own models...
I tried to make a model airplane once, because i would love to paint it, i love painting small toys like that. but in the end all i got put together was the fuselage before i got pissed because of the tail wings wouldn't stay on so i abandoned it. I would probably do better painting W40K models (heavens no i wont try to play the game, i just like painting models) because they don't have to be assembled as much as model planes
The only thing I used to build was model cars and boats. I trashed them a long time ago, then I went though the phase of building rockets (the ones you can launch) I think I lost at least 5 of them. I think 3 are orbiting the planet at the moment, one of them simply made it a few feet in the air and blew up and the other one was descending back to the ground and before I could get to it some asshole stole it and ran off with it.
My history teacher from high school ([url=http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1114066-LMAO-Pics-v.97-GENTLEMAN-S-EDITION?p=31576399&highlight=#post31576399]this one[/url]), who was turned into an English teacher because he taught out of the norm and also taught all the bad and morbid stuff they tend not to talk about in history, used to have his room filled with flags and model planes hanging everywhere and little battle reenactments with toy soldiers and model tanks and vehicles, and he had hanging florescent lights that he had battleships and submarine models on... Twas awesome. At the end of the year he gave some away.
wow, thats good news.[img]http://plugin.name/7/hOgCQ3[/img]

Oh God, finally a miniature/scale model thread. I have to get a camera.
When I was like 8, my parents thought I was playing too many video games, so they bought me a whole bunch of WW2 model trucks, tanks and planes to assemble, it was fun when Dad and I were making them but it just made me want to play WW2 games. I miss my model Pershing.
Desolategrunt, if you have/can borrow/can get and airbrush you can get some fantastic weathering effects.
Everywhere I go sells Battleships, Cars, or Planes. Do they even make Plastic model kits of trains? I know ive seen like 3 at a store which has closed down now, but Id like to buy some.
