After working countless hours, my son and I finished his first Tamiya RC model. It was a pretty tough decision on which one to get, but in the end I decided to go with a classic. He worked really hard on it and I only helped when asked (went back and fixed things after he went to bed :) ). Anyway Enjoy!

I surprised him! He didn't know he was getting it! Organization is a good thing for a 7 year old! ...ahh masking and painting Painting complete, gotta trim it out... And were done except for the headlamps

Yeah thats great! My daughter and I finished her first FAV recently. It took ages but she managed with my support very well. It is some kind of a special feeling for the kids when they finished a R/C model

Thanks for all the great comments. The paint was all his idea. I masked it off and taught him how to use a two-stage airbrush. He did a great job for his first time.

Your son's done fantastic , there's nothing better than building something from scratch ,it gives a great understanding of mechanics and i think he will appreciate it even more knowing he built it.

Okay, I am sending your son my bodies that I need painted as he has an excellent choice of colors and design and even execution. I hope he has a lot of fun with it.

Crash, He is surprisingly patient for a 7 year old. I had to touch it up a bit, but he did really well for his first time.

Excellent job to your son, and +1 for sending him some of my lexan bodies to paint...his patience is far greater than mine!
