I had a few minutes, so I thought I’d make a couple of quick comments that likely interest no one…
I have been working fast, and I hope this will continue for quite some time. Since I retired I have treated building models and managing this site as sort of “my job”. I try to make 2-4 hours a day for modeling, often less on days that I post.
I have been known to burn out on occasion, and take months or even years where I do much less work, but for now I don’t foresee that happening anytime soon.
My unbuilt inventory of kits is embarrassingly huge! Close to four digits. At my current speed I’m finishing about a kit a week, so at that pace I have a 20 year supply of subject matter. It may be a race to the finish line! I’m a little arthritic, but so far nothing I can’t work around.
My stash is mostly aircraft. The three “On My Workbench” subjects have been a simple aircraft (mostly single engine fighters), a complex aircraft, and a “miscellaneous” (mostly from my vehicle stash). But my vehicle stash is much smaller, at my current rate I would exhaust it in 2-3 years. I’ve got 6 more AFVs I want to get to soon, but expect after that I may start throwing in more odd sorts of aircraft… or Mustangs (I seriously have a lot of Mustangs!)
And I have a couple of theme builds in mind (often based on themed boxings), at least one diorama…. So at some point the “On My Workbench” may look very unusual. But probably not anytime too soon.
I had hoped to have more other types of posts this year, stuff on air shows, museums, reenactments… but you all can guess what happened to those plans. Thunder Over Michigan was officially canceled three days ago. But you know, that leaves more time for building….
