Need an example of how sometimes modellers become so wrapped up in small, insignificant details that they miss the bigger picture? Ladies and gentleman, here’s my F-86 Sabre…
“For whatever reason (and honestly, that eludes me) I had seen something in this Sabre that I didn’t like, focussed on that and then convinced myself it wasn’t worthy of any more of my time”
Why can’t a modelling project be a success from start to finish – why do we always have to make mistakes?!
“After 40 years of building models you would think that I would have everything pretty much down pat and most things that I tackle would be an easy progression, A to Z, but no: if I can foul up a model I will”
OR WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER TAKE YOUR EYE OFF THE BALL (OR THE DECAL SHEET!)
“I forgot the decals, only to look down once I’d finished grandstanding to see that the sheet of tiny stencils had flowed together into one watery mess”
