Wow!! Has it really been this long since my last post? Well, it’s been that same amount of time since my last sit down at the workbench. While I am not proud of that fact, I do feel energized and excited to resume again. It was this same time last year that I was forced to take a step away so maybe that’s my new schedule. I sure hope not but the summertime seems to be filled to the max.
Like I said before, I haven’t touched any of the helicopters or the A-10 in months. Work and household projects, along with my wife (Kindergarten Teacher) and kids being out of school don’t leave a lot of energy to fight a model at 10:30 at night. It’s been a great summer and I am certainly not complaining. The nag of wanting to get back to building has never left me and I have continued to build my stash with some detrimental kits over the past couple of months. More on those later!
Last night was a turning point as I scrounged up all but the Blackhawk in a kind of re-meet and greet of sorts. Evaluating all the builds before I picked up where I had so long ago left off. The night was mainly a sand and fill festival but it felt great to have some plastic back in my hands. In all actuality, I left most of them in decent shape. Final paint should be right around the corner.
