    Welcome to the forums!!!
    Wow, that is really great that your boys like the hobby!
    It's really fantastic to get the younger generation involved, especially when most would rather be playing video games or something!

    You also found my favorite store for getting models and accessories! Congratulations!
    Show us some of your work! It doesn't even have to be complete!
    We just love to see what people are doing!
    Again, welcome and congrats on getting your young ones involved!

    Be sure to check places like GreMir Models and other 'digital' model sites. With your situation it might be nice to buy one copy of a model and be able to print it multiple times so you all have copies to work on ;)

    I have been on this forum for a while now and have made more than a few posts but I never really had a chance to take someones whole post and quote the whole thing, until today! The whole post just sounds so...., cool,,, and exciting! :mrgreen:hehehe

    Why don't you get a model of an Ipod for the girls or maybe something they are interested in. There are paper models for every subject under the moon and if you cannot find something specific, just give a holler about it!
    Somebody will have some kind of solution or suggestion for you. More than likely, quite a few somebodies! :twisted: I guarantee!

    I'm just trying to see if you could possibly get the girls interested because it is a great hobby and it requires one to think and plan, not just build. These are all great traits to exercise and strengthen! You also have so much fun, you don't even realize that it really is a great mind strengthener and horizon expander!
    Usually, once someone is hooked by the hobby and they start doing models from different genres than the one that gets them started, learning everything about your subject becomes a must and many times it will include history lessons, right along with learning about your subjects!

    Personally, I think this is one of the best hobbies that you could ever introduce to your children!

    Anyway, two thumbs up to you!!!:thumb::thumb: I'm really glad you have your whole family involved, in some form or fashion, even if it is just watching!
    The watchers will see how cool it is, soon enough, and they just may want to join in!
    I'm looking forward to hearing from you and yours, and I'm looking forward to seeing some pictures!!!!

    You had to know that was coming!:twisted:
