I was talking with a friend last night, and the subject of restoring or repainting old, built models came up. Personally, I don't see the point when most of us have newer or better unbuilt modelers in the stash awaiting our attention. My friend suggested that some guys are reworking their built models because they can't afford new ones.
So that got me wondering if it's possible to find a really good kit for under five dollars. So in that spirit, I'm going to challenge myself tomorrow to look for the best kit I can find in that price range. Assuming there are modelers selling their stashes, it shouldn't be too hard. I'll report back later in the weekend.
