Creating an Airfix (or Revell, Italeri etc.) model for a diorama or just to play with is usually quite an interesting experience. However, effort and time is needed to create the perfect model. This guide will tell you the basics and the facts of how to make an excellent model.
When beginning your model the first thing you'll need is a place to work – preferably somewhere you won’t be disturbed. Clear a table or work surface and cover it with newspaper. Tape the newspaper onto the table so there is no chance of it lifting in a draught while you are working.
