The craft of model making has been around for a long, long time. The Ancient Egyptians made models to burry in their tombs, prisoners of war carved wooden ones to pass the time, and scientists/inventors/engineers have been building models of their creations for hundreds of years. But, in the 1960s model making became really cool when the building possibilities grew to include objects from the past, present, future, and beyond!
If you are into building or inventing you should probably give model making a try. It’s like Legos, only a bit more complicated. And a kit should be an easy sell to your parents because you can say it is educational! It will be work, but when you finish, you are sure to have a toy that you can be proud of.
