Adversity Bites!

It’s been no secret that I have been overwhelmed and extremely frustrated with my workbench exploits as of late. I do have a great excuse in the house move but it seems like I’ll never find the same success that I am used to and so dearly want back. Am I relegated to one good sit down session a week now? I hope not but I am coming to terms with the fact that it’s going to be that way for a bit longer. 

While I am certainly treading new waters here, the desire to keep building remains and that is the main focus that keeps me from freaking out completely. My workbench remains backed up with the Avenger, Stuka, Spitfire, and Babs in final paint limbo which was partially addressed this morning. More on that later. I also have an F-18 and A-6 on deck to be built next. Add that to the many book reviews from Pen & Sword that I need to do and you can see how I have put myself in a pickle. 

Good news though. I’m hoping I at least poked a hole in the dam with the Avenger, Spitfire, and Babs finally getting some final paint on. The Stuka needs a little more prep work before I get the belly painted. I forgot to assemble the landing gear covers so that’s holding me up for now. Not bad considering the other three have a decent start to final paint. 

I’m slowly coming to terms with my progress lately and today was a great breakthrough at the airbrush. It’s one step at a time from here on out.

  1. Frustration is the name of the game when we build just one kit.
    I can imagine the level of frustration you have reached.

    I have been on a three-day trip, and had to put a hold on the Typhoon.
    I have a lot of catching up with my others blogs and emails I got so the Typhoon will wait until next week.

  2. I try to read books for my researches, and how I wish that I could read them like Superman does. Perhaps that’s how to get over your (temporary) problems with not having sufficient time for your model building!

  4. Ugh! I can feel your frustration. I know it’s not exactly the same, but I hate it when I sit down to write something and I just can’t find the photo I know I want to pair with it, or the old piece of writing that I want to update. It’s strange how important being organized is to the creative process. I hope you’re back on kilter soon.
