Dusting Off The Workbench 

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.

  1. I was thinking it had been a while!
    I’m in a similar slump with just too much going on with several household projects. Still, I will look forward seeing someone get some modeling done!

  2. Nice to see a post from you. We seem to be in similar busy states. I thought that I wasn’t seeing your posts because I hadn’t posted for awhile and WordPress let it drop.

    You are my inspiration for building multiple kits at once!

    • Thank you! You do a great job with the multiples. I’m thinking of going back to just two at a time after this group is complete. A little calmer of a workbench might be just what I need to keep steady.


    • There is so much truth in that. I’m going to try to stay consistent now that the summer is slowing down. Even 20 minutes a week was impossible to steal. I’ve had quite a few home projects that really consumed my free time.
