Scale Modeling Sources for Beginners

I decided to write this post and share my knowledge and thoughts for Scale Modeling sources available in market today. My initiation was triggered from the fact that when I started to look for information it was really hard to find and I spend a lot of time searching the web for reviews and related info. The problem was and I consider that still is,  important information for this subject can not be found from one or few reference points. This is what I will give a try to pop in as much information as possible for the subject of Scale Modeling sources.

Since the beginning of this exciting Hobby everything seams confusing: From where to start – Which are most appropriate techniques – Which tools – Which scale and from which supplier to start and several other questions that beginner modeller is getting really confused. An allegory like the puzzle of 5.000 small pieces. The Hobby of scale modelling regardless of  age and that  what really makes it wonderful and creative at the same time for everyone.

Scale model From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A scale model is a physical model, a representation or copy of an object that is larger or smaller than the actual size of the object, which seeks to maintain the relative proportions (the scale factor) of the physical size of the original object. Very often the scale model is used as a guide to making the object in full size. Scale models are built or collected for many reasons.Professional model-makers often create models for many professions:
