One thing I found that’s interesting is that you’re often faced with obstacles while building a Model. Any Model really. Because what you’re trying to achieve wouldn’t be satisfying to yourself unless you were able to reach that certain point of perfection.
Model Groups. I belong to about 5 different ones I think? Maybe less, I have to check. Anyway, I’m really not very active in any of them. I do check in on them from time to time and see what people have posted and what others have commented on. A lot of things on there sometimes borders on the cliche, but you can often find some interesting information on there.
I just saw this one guy who over-sanded his ship down to past the Venere. It was kind of tragic. I’m waiting to see how he overcomes it. I know that over-sanding is a common mistake that a lot of us make. I did it on my first build. There’s no more disheartening feeling in the world, let me tell you. I’m curious how he overcomes this one? A lot of guys recommended he “cut” it out? Hmmm, I’m not sure you can disguise it after you do something like that. Especially if he intends to leave it wood.
Which brings me back to being able to find ways around certain problems.
When you look at any Ship, you would be able to spot imperfections with it if you look close enough. I think the most important thing is to strive to making it the most satisfactory for yourself. If you can live with it, then, you should just leave it. If you can’t live with it, then by all means… change it. That’s what I do anyway.
Just my garden today. Those are the Allums which came up after the Hyancinths. Next, the Lavendars will be coming up. Thing about those Lavendars, I didn’t even plant them, but they come up every year so I think it’s great whenever they do.
