If I’m not into the building of a new model within the first half an hour of starting work, I often find myself struggling to ever get going
Why is it sometimes so hard to get into a kit?!
I wonder if anyone else suffers from the problems that I have with new – or indeed, old – kits?
More and more, I’m finding that kits are like movies or books; if I’m not into the building of a new model within the first half an hour of starting work, I often find myself struggling to ever get going. Sometimes, if the kit is important, or the need pressing, I’ll soldier on in the – often – vain hope that my enthusiasm will grow, but more often than not, the exercise will be one of futility, the box will be closed and I’ll move on.
Why is this? I must have had some enthusiasm to get cracking in the first place and I almost always pick decent kits to build, so why do I feel so differently about each project? It’s not as though it’s down to subject choice, complexity or the time I know it will take to complete the model – it’s just a strangely odd barrier that almost instantly appears between me and the project that sits on the bench.
So I wonder, is it just me, or does this affect everyone else as well?
