Creating, restoring, painting all sorts of models from RPG characters to model cars.
Today's show is about my recently started hobby of restoring Matchbox models. I talked about this on the New Year show and Ken said it deserved a show in its own right.
So today I briefly talk about how I got into the hobby through watching YouTube Videos of Marty's Matchbox Makeovers, and my first restoration pictured below. Enjoy.

Looking forward the series!
I haven't ever stripped Matchbox cars, but I have done fair share of miniature stripping. I'm interested on hearing how you handle this as these models have both metal and plastic parts.

Feedback from Tuturto
Thanks for the comments, I will be covering how I go about dismantling the models, removing paint from the casting and plastic parts as part of the series. My next episode will be about the basic tools and materials you need to get started.
