I don’t want to sound intrusive or nosy, but I’m curious to know how many hours/week do you get to spend on modeling?
I mean the time you spent actually building/painting the models, not counting the time browsing forums/buying stuff online or in store.
With work, groceries, food, running errands, life’s other commitments, I’m finding even 3 hrs a week is impossible. And I don’t even have kids!
At this rate I can only make one model a year, if I’m lucky.
I really envy those folks who post photos of their completed models every other week!
For me, I see problem as two fold: 1. If I spend more time on it I risk getting shamed and called “obsessive” by family members. 2. There’s a voice in my head telling me to do more “productive” things with my life, such as learning how to trade stocks, how to fix my car, etc. Ugh I HATE that voice!
So how do you guys balance things out? How do you find free time? I’m curious to know how many of you are retired or semi-retired? I’m in my 30’s and I’ve only built 3 models in my life. I wanted to build more but life keeps kicking me in the balls. I’m starting to doubt if I should quit and come back in 30 years, if I live that long…
