Well, I think I'm ready to immerse myself in plastic dust and whittled spru once again.... Man, where do I start.....
First off, I never really left the hobby......I just needed a break. Took a trip to a local Show/Expo to convince me something had to change....
I've really slackened off in the last 5 years, completing my last two fully finished builds over or around 4 years ago....
Seeing all the great builds at the Show got my creative juices flowing again, so this next 12 months I hope to get at least one big car (1/12) completed,
to put in the Show next year....That's the plan anyways......
During my recent spell (the last few months?? you can insert quite a few in there..) I haven't been totally idle.....
I came down with a disease, a bug for want of a better term.....it was confirmed as the "diecast bug"........ The good news is, I think I'm in recovery mode.
It was swift when it hit, and the feeling is slowly passing......
It secured me about a dozen models, give or take a few.....and it quenched my thirst for seeing a completed model on the bench in no time.
There were unforeseen side effects though, like the urge to MODIFY them..................... DOH!
If you are browsing my pages @ Fotki, you may already have an idea of the trauma I have been through......
This, just a taste of how serious things got, I finally finished yesterday.
Started out as an "out of box" Biante 1/18 1977 Holden Torana A9X. Which is a pretty kool model straight up.....But, I wanted more.......
Yeah, looks pretty good, hey??
Well, as you probably well know, I hate to leave things just as "as is"...................So, the old brain went into overdrive.
I think the difference is amazing, and I am now happy to have it on display.
Give me some time to get my head back around the goings on here, I can already see there has been an unreal amount of work getting done...
Hopefully, I'll be back sharing with you all very soon.
