$$$ Per model?

On the average, how much do you spend on one of your models from beginning to end. Kit, supplies.....

Let's see, $10-$20 per model kit, then I usually use my paint from previous cars, so say about $10-$15 in paint, then for other supplies such as sandpaper, markers and putty etc., I'd say about $10 there going toward a total for about $30-$50 USD. I guess it depends on how much extra supplies I got lying around my house. Like sandpaper, u don't use the whole sheet on one car!

Right now its about 20-30 for the kit, I've built up a pretty good modelling paint supply that I don't really need to purchase anything new for a kit. It's like a video game system, paints + tools + airbrush represents the console, and each kit is like a video game.

True that! I got like a whole bunch of paint, indicating that I don't need to purchase more.

I'd have to say about $20-$30 for everything for one car for mine.
