At first, I had stopped building simply because I was simply learning how to live and make it day to day. Then too, the TBI was ending my career and I was being pushed into retirement at a time for which we had not planned to. So after 22+ years in the Marine Corps, I retired and at the same time, I am 100% disabled as well. So after moving, I couldn’t bear to see my uniforms, my library, my models, my tools; basically everything I had enjoyed. I have used the excuse of my tremors to explain my staying away from modeling, but the truth is the same as so many things: that I fear I can’t do things to the level or caliber I once did. Long story short, I’ve been barely getting by all this time. So I have decided to re-commit myself to scale models with the knowledge that I’ll build a few glue-bombs in the beginning. So with that, I have dug it all out and have been getting back to doing research and finding the sources for the detail items I’ll need but don’t already have. I’ll “treat each part as though it is its own model’ and figure out how to get around the tremor somehow.
