1/4 scale cub

Just starting to get ready to begin building . Sooner than I thought, kit was on back order till October 2021 but came by UPS last Monday 8/23/2021.Been getting things together for a magnetic building board .A idea I saw in other post to do instead of pins .giving this a try. well gave it a try and not as good as I thought magnets have good hold but slide easy on glass . just the metal is much better but still think pins are better for now . Maybe I'm too use to it that way.

This is crazy, this post has over 20,000 views in just a few days and my build thread that has been up for several months about the 1/4 scale cub has only over 2,000 views...weird, but I am not jealous or anything...

Anyway, the secret to the magnetic building is using a steel building surface, not glass over steel. Find a piece of flat steel or a sheet of steel from a metal vendor and place it on a very flat workbench, then your magnets will stick like crazy. I also use plastic wrap from Michaels to cover plans and plain brown paper wrap from the Dollar store to cover the metal when building. See my build threads and you will see how it's done.
