What was your first kit?

Compiled by Mark Hembree
Published: August 22, 2014

While we prepared the October 2014 issue of FineScale Modeler, we asked readers to tell us the first kit they could remember building on their own. We got a lot of responses — too many to print — so we promised we would run the rest of them here.

We also asked the same question of our staff and kit reviewers, and their head-scratching and irreverence makes them especially amusing.

So, here we are. As we mentioned in the magazine, we will not be correcting these memories (or what’s left of them, anyway). You may now argue among yourselves.
