 If you are new to plastic models start with a Level 1 model kit. These kits usually require no painting or gluing and do not include many detail parts.

   For the more experienced modeler Skill 2 and Skill 3 plastic models are recommended since they require painting and gluing. For the advanced modeler, Skill 4 and higher plastic models are even more complex since they usually require extensive work with the interior/engine details of the model kit.
   Kits rated as skill level 2 or 3 require all basic modeling skills to complete. This includes cutting parts from spruces and trimming or sanding them prior to use, test fitting prior to final assembly, the use of cement to assemble the parts, and the use of paint to complete them. In addition, accessory parts sold individually (often called after-market products) for use with model kits are considered part of the advanced skill levels. Kits in these classes are not suitable for small children. Adults who have never before completed a plastic model kit will probably want to try some less difficult kits before beginning a Skill Level 3 kit.
   Most of the difference between Skill Level 2 and Skill Level 3 has to do with the number of parts and the level of detailing found in the kits.
