Greetings!  
I am new to modeling and have only built a few kits to date.  I enjoy and appreciate the thoroughness of your step by step builds.  They are highly educational and provide insight for someone just starting out such as myself.  

I am currently building the f4-u corsair and so far everything is looking great.

I was wondering if you have given any thought about including a build manifest that lists all the paint, washes and materials used for each of your step by step builds?  

Cheers!
Chip

As a person that has been away from modelling for a while I would also really like to see a build manifest.  Everything including puddy, paint, and glue.  Even suggestions on tools and paint brushes would be great.  Things have changed a lot and although I am buying everything I can see in the video's, a list would make it so much easier.

Actually this would be a good idea for a series unto itself,

"Getting Tooled Up"

Having an itinerary of must have tools and cheep options to get them would be a huge help [smile]

As would having a broad overview of what's out there.

Would be handy if Bobby did a Genessis Models Starter Pack with scalpels, sanding sticks, polishing sticks, tweezers, drill bits, glues, fillers etc.
He could do starter packs for Building, Surface Prep, Painting, Decalling, Weathering as well as Advanced Tool Packs etc.
Using the best of the cheapest etc. I'd buy some [smile]

Would also be handy if he could put a paint pack together for his step by step video builds which would make following along easier too [smile]
If did a pack including the model and upgrades so much the better [smile]

I think once you've got the basics covered the only specific bits you would need to follow a build series are the specific colours needed (and the model of course [biggrin] )

Nice idea though Chip [smile]

I am just now reading this post. Interesting idea. At one of the hospitals I worked for there were about 12 doctors in my dept. Each one wanted more or less items included on our basic procedure tray. I had to coordinate this with the manufacturer of the tray. It made the doctors happy until the reports came back re: the storage problems and cost of stocking each and every tray.

The cost up front would be pretty steep for Genessis to purchase all the different materials, put them together, package them, and ship. Bob might have to hire someone just to do this work. Filling, shipping, and tracking orders alone can be a monumental task. What about sales vs inventory? Each item you keep in inventory is subtracted from your profit margin. It is a great idea, just not sure all the logistics are worth the risk?
