Hello all, new member here. Is there any manufacturer of military models that sell pre-painted kits? I really enjoy putting kits together but painting is not my forte. I understand painting is part of being a modeler but I'm obviously very amateur. Would love to get into 1/72 WWII planes/tanks. I know it's a long shot but figured I would ask the pros, any info is appreciated. Thanks!

There are a lot of assembled kits on Ebay,also modelers here sell their work.

Also,I think these are pre-assembled

There is also some 1/32 stuff .... Forces of Valor ??

Dang! Had to Google it
and they have 1/72 as well ,
aircraft and vehicles ...

Note that prepainted usually implies already assembled so the amount of modelling would be close to zero ...

Maybe it could be useful to learn to paint ?
Just a simple camouflage or maybe single colour or stick with stuff that had none or very simple camouflage schemes ?
Leave all the weathering and stuff for later and let the skills grow little by little with each finished kit ...
