My DaD has inspired me to do something I never though I would do in my lifetime. I have actually built two model cars! One of them was a simple snap-together, but the second actually used real paint and glue.
- ’69 Camaro
- 2009 Dodge Challenger
My first model: ’69 Camaro Z/28 SS. Sure, it snapped together and only had about 50 pre-painted parts, but it was still an accomplishment for me. I am not very good at following instructions when they are not elaborate. Diagrams confuse me, and I get frustrated if things do not turn out perfectly. When I finished this model, I was quite literally shocked at my own perseverance. Little did I know, this one was the easy one!
My second model: 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Special Edition. 104 parts, each had to be painted separately and glued together. This model required a tremendous amount of patience, which is something that I don’t typically have. It took me a whopping 6 days of committed work to build this model.
I don’t know how my DaD does it! He must have a lot more patience than I do. I think I may be done with modeling – we’ll see!
