As you guys know that in Pakistan there are very few people aware with the word 'Scale Modelling'. Some handful guys belongs to Karachi and others from Lahore and Islamabad, who are in continues contact to help each other in this interesting hobby to expand it more and make awareness to more n more people all over Pakistan. Although scale modelling is expensive due to lack of modelling supplies so Pak modellers mostly shop through online hobby stores through credit cards and drafts etc. I guess we've just a single hobby shop which is located in Lahore called Hobby Lobby owned by guy name Adeem. I've also heard that there is another one in Islamabad too. But they don't have that much interesting stuff.
Anyway, in west, people making models of military aircraft, tanks , heavy vehicles, ships, exotic cars since very long. But don't know why we are still so behind comparatively from India and Iran also.
Well, this was my little try to inform you guys also about it and I know most of you are already fimiliar with it.
I wish we could think about this seriously and somebody try to get dealerships (who wants to make it a business) of different renown plastics model manufacturers like Italeri, Academy, Revell, Trumpeter, Heller etc. As our neighbor countries India and Iran have huge imports of plastic modelling. When we will have adequate modelling supplies, better kits and other usefull tools so more and more people will attracts towards it. And in future Inshallah we would be making some Pakistani modelling community, events, some get togethers due to which would be recognized in the world and it will also brighten Pakistan's name in International Plastics Modellers Society (IPMS).
Please check some usefull site related to Scale Modelling. And share your ideas, views and suggestion in this topic.
