scooter Posted April 2, 2012 Share Posted April 2, 2012 (Just thought I'd post this and see where the discussion would lead.) As I was working on my current project, and dealing with the issues inherent in a limited run kit, it suddenly struck me that I am making the same mistake, and I do the same thing wrong from 35 years ago, as I do today. Yes, it caused me to ask - "am I a better modeller?" The answer, (I think) is yes!, I read, follow anticipate and work through the build and especially the finish of the final product. But ..however it struck me today that when I was 9, the following would occur: - didn't read the instructions closely, - didn't spend that extra 30 seconds on "that" joint, - making the paint dry faster by just staring at it and not just letting it dry properly, - "just knowing" that the next decal will not break up in seconds.. like the last one did..knowing that in my closet is a can of decal bonder.. - and finally, seeing all of the above in the model. so 35 years later, I can usually fix the error and hide the mistakes.. but the same aforementioned things still happen... Does it happen to you? Quote Link to post Share on other sites
