Specifically metal and plastic kits, rather than the human body. There doesn't appear to be a specific area of the forums to discuss such things, so I figured the best place to do so was here, but does anyone paint or model? Has anyone before? Has anyone considered taking it up as a past time? I had a few Trek ships when I was a lot younger, namely the TOS Enterprise, USS Reliant, USS Excelsior and Voyager. I also collected an assortment of 40k miniatures (Space Marines and Imperial Guard - despite my pathetic painting skills), and I've recently considered a small 40k display, but they're quite expensive these days. I remember when a box of ten plastic figures used to be £12-£15, and you could get a box of three figures for £5, whereas now, some figures (especially hero units which are now plastic - they used to be metal) can be £12-£20 by themselves, and they're the same size as a standard figure. It's madness. I've also got five DC characters (iron studios) and four small Trek ships (eaglemoss) on display around my flat too, though none of these required assembly or paint. What about you guys and gals?
