Do you guys have any interesting hobbies you'd like to share?

I'm big into model kits, mostly gunpla but a few star wars kits as well. I'll dump a few around to get the thread going. OP pic is my latest one, and my largest/most detailed. It's about a foot tall and I just finished throwing a matte clear coat on it.

This here's a work in progress, still need to add some extra panel lining and topcoat to make it look less cheap. Love wonky looking kits like this.

After I get some black primer, I'm going to start painting my first batch of Necron Immortals from Warhammer 40k. If they look okay for a beginner, I'll be sure to post them.
How long have you been into model kits?

About a year now, though I've only been any good for about 6 months. My earlier ones are abhorrent looking.

But yeah they're basically plastic crack, you just keep fucking buying them and buying them kek. Anyway yeah be sure to post the results itt!

apologies for the mess, this is the desk I throw all my spare parts and tools on. Just finished this guy, first time doing some painting (not counting clear coat)

That's quite meticulous work you've put there, did the materials cost you a lot?

The kits themselves vary widely, OP pic was $150 whereas that last one was $10. Though, to be fair, that last one is 4 inches vs the first at a foot. As for supplies, I got most of them in a predone set for $10, but I've had to replace a couple things, for incredibly cheap though. Paint was like a dollar, and markers for lining the panels was about the same.

All you really need for this hobby is a pair of sidecutters (very small wire cutters), an xacto, and a fine-tip black or gray pen for panels. It's not too expensive really.

I'm not into Gunpla, but I am a merchfag so one of my grails is the biggest kit they put out that costs over a grand. You know the one.

wew lad which one?

I always wanted the HG Perfect Zeong

If you're wondering, no this isn't in scale. In fact, the kit on the right is 1/100th its actual size, whereas the Zeong is 1/144th. So the other kit should be even smaller in scale.

Can anyone suggest me a hobby? I'm looking for something I can do anytime of the day that would also be relaxing, to occupy the 8 hours of free time i have everyday.

How's your income? There are lots of hobbies that can last you 8 hours a day, but many require buying a lot of shit. Like with models, that's a good example. Time consuming, fulfilling, but expensive.

My currency got fucked by rona, so i earn 40 dollars a month, and have about 2000 in savings. I was going to make a model Messeschimitt Bf 109 once but got overwhelmed by the price of the wood, nothing i can not afford but a little bit much to be trowing in a hobby that's not going to give back. I was thinking about doing a bit of woodworking like this guy does https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vO6lATthAmE, particularly a rocking chair, I know I can do a more precise job if I use a file, as I did metalworking jobs using only a saw and a file.

I dabble in a bunch of hobbies, mostly because i get bored mega easy. I bought a few Evangelion model kits. I haven't painted em, because I'm not sure what paints I need and where I should get em. They look nice on display on my bookshelf.

Ha, my first model kit was an eva unit 1 and it was so terrible it almost put me off the hobby entirely.

My first was a mass production eva model. I saw it at a game store I go to occasionally. I thought it was cool as fuck so I bought it immediately. Shortly after I bought Unit 00, 01, and 02.

Papercraft is a good poorsilly sausage hobby.

Hmmm, I don't know, that would not really be useful to anything.

It could be used to make an impression on somebody, probably…

>Anyway here is my depiction of an 1942 German aircraft made in toilet wipes, it took me about 40 hours to complete.
That would probably be very impressive, but I think I am searching for something that would give me some useful skill. I'm probably going to stick with my idea of woodworking.

Good luck mate, make sure you show us your progress when you get into it

In other news here's my latest project. Not finished yet, but most of the way through anyway.
