First of all, while choosing a good plastic model car kit you have to pay attention to its scale and design. A well-designed model will look realistic and if you want to have an accurate copy, the design must be one of the most important features for you. A good model with careful attention to every detail, giving the impression that you watch a real car, despite its scale and size. There are different types of scales, for example, 1:23 means that the copy is 23 times smaller than the real size of a car. The scale depends on a number of pieces. The bigger the scale is, the smaller the model would be.
If you don’t have enough space in the room but want to assemble a car consider how small or large it will be.
If you want to choose a scale model car for building for your child, you have to pay attention to its age range. Some models are acceptable for really small kids while others can be used by elder kids from 12-year-old and adults.Plastic car model kits have different skill levels.There are five types of the model kit’s assembly starting from the easiest one (skill level basic) which doesn’t require painting and finishing the model for the real professionals(skill level advanced). There you will find a lot of pieces which you have to assemble and paint by your own. That’s why, be careful choosing the difficult model for your child. The assembly of the model may be too hard and not interesting for him. For beginners, it may be a good idea to consider the kits rated at skill level basic to make modeling successful, however, more experienced builders should definitely look for something more complex and detailed.
Tiny puzzle pieces make them quite fragile, so it can be easy to damage them during the assembly. The good news is, some manufacturers provide some spare details in the box. Others can be bought separately on the official website. You may also need to use some other materials and tools to put a model together- paints, tools and a glue. Sometimes they are not included in the package, but it shouldn’t be a problem to get them somewhere else.
