Well we had our 10 year old grandson down to stay with us over the last few days and had a great time. We played a few board games - Space Hulk (the original), the fairly new X-Wing Miniatures Game, Carcassone and Settlers of Catan - all of which were very new to him.
Fairly early on I took him down to my local hobby store and he selected a Hobbyboss CH-46 Seaknight kit to make with me and a box of Airfix WW2 British Commandos.
Over the course of his stay he made the kit annd painted some figures - first time for each. I had him remove all the pastic peices from the sprues and I cleaned them up for him. He then glued everything together, spray undercoated and base coated the helo, and then helped me put the decals on. I painted the windows and a few other things for him. ....I'm a big fan of painted windows....
Here is the end result - of which I am very impressed!
It was our first Hobbyboss kit - and came together very nicely. We took our time and the end result was excellent.
I left the rotor blades as seperate so they could cope with the plane flight home.
We also painted his "Army Men"
I painted a couple to help him have an idea of what they could look like - and helped him take care of what was left. One of them got turned into a Terminator Commando along the way....
So that's it for now
