Default RE: To the "Builders"

I have answered questions. But help someone build the entire kit ? Do you mean someone mentally impaired ? The kits did say for ages 12 and up at one time. They are pretty simple and easy to assemble. I don't understand why you believe someone would require assistance from start to end.

Generally speaking, if the person has no model building experience at all, then yes, you do need to steer them in the right direction. But once they get started, they generally catch on. After that, they only have a few questions here and there. The first attempt with Monokote is generally a frustrating one. I have helped cover planes . I do a section to demonsrtate a technique, then make them do a similar section, etc.

How many people have I helped in 35 years ? Your guess is as good as mine.
