Mr P apparently felt great pity for me while we were watching the James May show on model airplanes, because I confessed to never having built one in my childhood. Well, soon I'll have had that experience. Apparently one can really kind of deep-end on the hobby and produce some amazing-looking models. I, for one, will be satisfied if I glue it together properly and don't kill too many brain cells.
Quick language question: When I think of the hobby that involves assembling and gluing together plastic models of things then painting them, I think of it by the term "model airplanes". Mr Pedia undoubtedly went to a "hobby shop" to purchase my Spitfire and paints. James May used the word "Airfix" exclusively, but that's a specific brand name. Is that how our cousins across the pond refer to the hobby?
Randomly, in conclusion: Catnip indeed.
