Like anything else, learning what’s involved in a new hobby is the first step to taking it on. From figuring out what tools you’ll need, finding a place to store essentials and creating an organized place to work and play, it’s always important to do some preparation. That is especially true for aviation modeling.

Aviation modeling is a lot more than kits and parts. Before you even open your first kit, you need a dedicated space where “the magic happens.” Having a prepped location ready for your first build will make the whole process much easier (and a lot more fun) so that’s why we’re sharing these tips.

Let’s get started!

Dedicated Location

First off, you’ll enjoy your build more if you have a dedicated space. You need the freedom to spread out and stay organized. It will make a big difference when you don’t have to clean up in the middle of your project (or worry about the family pup getting into your small-parts pile).

If you have a spare room you have the perfect space and an old table is all you really need. You can also use plywood and sawhorses if they are sturdy. Once you find the perfect spot with a solid and flat work surface, you’re ready to start adding tools.


Building Boards

Few modelers build directly on their work table. They often use “building boards” with a cork top surface. These soft-top building boards allow modeling pins to be pushed into their surface so you can hold all the parts of a build kit safely in place.

Servo Mounting Screw

We have a full line of fasteners and are a leading worldwide distributor of the Servo Mounting Screws. Our Servo Mounting Screws have a variety of uses, making them perfect for the demands of RC aircraft building and other UAV projects. They are made of the highest quality hardened steel and zinc coated, so you can apply significant torque without fear of stripping or twisting the head. The self-contained washer completely covers the servo grommets and acts as a normal washer on other applications. These screws take a Ball Driver (Allen Wrench) that locks into the socket head for a true non-slip grip. We carry all the popular sizes, including the #2x9/16" which is our most sought-after size and works well for most servo applications.
