I’m at a crossroads in The Hobby. Gino has kindly swapped me some tracks, so I can finish the AAV-R eventually. Alex at Shapeways is designing wheel hubs so I can finish my M813 (and some other R M resin too). Unable to move on these, Ive started Trumpies M915 and trailer. Lovely kit with the Voyager p e set.
Never been in this multi-project thing with the hobby, but oh well, onwards and upwards!
Good advice. I’ve got the M 813 on a shelf, its DEF wheels all ready to go and Mission Model Fades 1-3 are on order for the canvas tarp/tilt and cab roof. The Amtrac is back in its box, now with Gino’s tracks. The M915 sprues are all labeled up and I’ve got the basic tractor frame built. These Voyager pe kits are quite involved!
I always have several builds on the go. SWMBO suffers chronic migraines, so I can only paint outside on weekends and when she is not around (Acrylic or lacquer). I cannot use solvents unless I’m in a different room. Trouble is, she is one of those “come and sit with me” types that watches dreadful TV shows… so parts clean up is my usual go to then - organisation of removed parts then becomes a big priority.
I am now working from home a few days a week, so lunch break becomes model painting break…
I’m way too ADHD - I start nearly ALL my models, hit a spot in the build (usually painting or after I’ve made a mistake) and box’em back up and shelve them. Then I’ll get a wild hair a few years later, pull it down and do some more steps. Rinse and repeat ad infinitum. Very few of mine ever get done.
