Previously, I did a post about whether 3D printed models could qualify as making. Well, here's another little conundrum which is maybe even more though provoking...
Is a 'virtual kit' still a kit? 😕
Let me explain. I've been playing the PC game 'TANK MECHANIC SIMULATOR' for a while now - in this game you take on the role of a tank museum curator (and his staff) and you are tasked with collecting and renovation old tank hulks so that you can display them in your museum!
|Above: You begin your Tank Mechanic Simulator project with a real junker! Aside from|
being a rust bucket you will find that there are many parts missing which you will have to
source or craft in order to be able to renovate the tank! (Pzr. III)
|Above: (Panzer III) Stripping back the tank to it's basics and slowly replacing the|
missing components is very relaxing. Here you see me about to spray the new bits
which so far have just been primed in red.
|Above: You get a real sense of elation when you finally complete a tanks in this|
game. Here I have put back together my Panzer III, I can now sell it or place it
in my virtual museum!
