A glimpse into my scale modeling hobby

Harsh Reality

The two projects sitting on my workbench, seriously neglected.

I need to just own up to the fact that I am in a season of my life where hobbies are a mere fleeting dream.  My almost two-year-old occupies most of my waking hours, and my wife and I are expecting another one in April! Yet, I still cling to every minute snatched here or hour stolen there.

The haphazard hours and minutes of late have been dedicated to the Ford Tri-Motor and Bandai’s Sandtrooper. I was able to snap one picture of my current progress, and it sums up my progress on both kits. The Ford Tri-Motor has been assembled, primed, and windows masked. The next step is to give the whole thing a coat of aluminum.

The Sandtrooper is completely assembled without decals. I am still trying to decide how I want to weather it after the decals are applied.

I will post again sometime, maybe over the holidays when I don’t have to worry about students and grading papers in addition to my own little one running around!
