Donn,

 

I think you have some leads on DVD sales with this thread! LOL  :D

 

In all seriousness though, your DVD is helpful, I just need to slow down and get some patience and my problems will be greatly reduced.

 

BTW- nice poetry! :P

You'd think that would be the case ..... Highly unlikely though !

Go back and watch the DVDs and count how many times that I stress the word " Patience ! "

Lmao ! Patience , son , patience !

There are days (and weeks too) when I feel like the joy is in learning.  Still learning, and I hope to continue, otherwise I fear boredom.  There are so many great builders on this forum, so the bar is set pretty high, but the fun is in moving slowing towards building better models.  One model at a time.

 

If you are starting out, my advice is to hold on to those first couple of models and then compare them to the ones that get built a year later, five, ten--then the journey could truly be appreciated.

Another for airbrushing. I really have no excuses, I have a good set up for it, just can't be bothered to practice.

I'm so poor at getting a great gloss finish that I basically never build cars anymore.  Its become all tanks, planes, and jets for me.  I just find the airbrushing process for military stuff much more fun, and easy.

Spray painting bodies for sure. I think I was better at it when I was a kid. 

 

I notice a lot of folks listing BMF. I'm old enough to remember the bad old days before BMF existed so even when it kicks my butt I'm grateful I can just peel it off and try again. I can't imagine hand painting the chrome strips on the side of a '40 Ford Tudor again.
