Have you ever wanted to make your own model airplane? It may be easier than you think. Building model planes if a great hobby, and it takes a bit of patience. If you love planes, and you aren't sure how to go about creating your own model, these simple steps can help you.

First, shop around for a model plane kit. There are many different varieties, so take a look around at your options. You can choose from commercial aircraft planes to military fighter planes. They are available in stores and online.

Second, make sure the box contains all of the parts necessary for a full completion of the model plane. Sometimes the parts are connected to each other for packing reasons. Just cut of the plastic that you don't need. You can use sand paper to smooth off any marks from this.

Next, read all of the instructions carefully. Make sure that you understand everything. This is the most important part.

Now you can wash all of the parts in mild soap, and dry them off for painting. Then paint the parts and allow them to dry. Don't paint over the areas that will be glued to other parts of the model plane. Wait several hours so that the paint is well dried.

The next step is adding the stickers to all of the appropriate areas. Remember to consult the instructions to be sure where to put them. Soak them in water for a few seconds and apply them with tweezers. Use a tissue to remove the excess water from the stickers.

Glue the model airplane pieces together according to the instructions. It is a good idea to glue one section and then let it dry before trying to glue the next section on.

You can add weathering details with a fine brush or spray. Once everything is dry and the decals are in place, apply a finishing gloss coating over the model airplane. Avoid getting the coating on lights, canopies or other clear parts.

The last step is allowing the final coating to dry. Then you can put your new model airplane, that you put together yourself, on display. You can show all of your friends and family what you have done. If you decide to make more model planes, you may consider selling them. If it did not go well for you, there are plenty of already made model planes for sale online and in shops.
