Pet peeve of mine!

Recommended Posts

I don't really have any pet peeves for other people's builds. As long as someone enjoys the building, it's all good to me. I think I've been guilty of just about everything mentioned in this thread, at one time or another.

... But sometimes I see stuff and wonder "Why didn't they try to fix that?". The thing I notice the most is poorly fitting tires and rims... where the rim sits way out past the bead edge of a tire or the assembly sits far too far out past the wheel openings. At that point I think "Nice build except for..."

being a modeler who digs creative, far out stuff more than super detailed factory stock models I get peeved at guys who criticize others builds who have the wrong shade of pink dabs on the rear shocks of a build...

as said, those models where the builder did a great job, but stopped one iota short!  Yes the grills not being blacked out qualifies.  My peeve?  The car is all BMFed and looks great, but the builder didn't chrome the scripts or color the side lamps!

That one gets me as well.

Or the body is all nicely BMF'd, but they left the vent windows painted ? :huh:

Mine is having a model pretty much finished and go one step too far and screw it up.

 

Another is models that look like they were dunked in a bucket of paint, all the detail is hidden under the paint.

You Tube Videos! Don't get me wrong, I appreciate that they are putting the effort in to help those who want it ... but why do they have to natter on about irrelevant stuff and turn 10 minutes worth of advice into a 25 minute video?

This is one but my main pet peeve is . . . "it's finished except for the ________ and I'll add the _______ later ."   HUH ?:o

Detailing, body mods, and engineering changes done poorly. I've long been the "clean building first" advocate so this shouldn't surprise anyone.

Not an exclusively modelling thing, and not so much a peeve, as it's amusing when people decide to HIGHLIGHT certain words and phrases in their posts, like the REASON your aren't COMPREHENDING their BRILLIANT ideas is that maybe you can't SEE them because they aren't BIG and BOLD enough, or they aren't using enough COLOUR!

I suppose you're supposed to be swayed by the forcefulness of their words, but nonsense shouted at the top of your lungs is still nonsense.  In any case, the effect is not so much forceful as "The voices in my head think you're wrong too!"
