What did I say?
(So hard to be politically correct during this catastrophe.)
If plastic kit building isn’t the best hobby for those of us under quarantine, then I’d like somebody to tell me a better one. I know it’s not called “quarantine”–but you know what I mean.
If you’re at home, congratulations. You can tear into that stash and get busy, just as if you had spent the last few decades preparing for this very crisis. You clever dog!
Since I quit on this blog a while back I’ve built some models. I’ve already featured of few of them in other posts, but here are the rest.
So where have I been?
At home, of course (feeling a tad bit discouraged).
I started this blog with the misguided ambition of teaching everyone how to build plastic kits without spray-painting. I learned, gradually, that it’s not as easy to do this as I thought it was. What seemed easy and obvious to me was really complex and difficult.
How often have old farts like me tried to teach “simple” things, only to discover that what we were trying to teach (and assumed would be learned instantly) was actually something that would require serious effort to learn and many, many hours of practice to master.
So it’s not easy. Nothing worth doing is easy. But that’s no excuse for me to abandon both of my fans in their hour of need. No, I’ll stick around.
Here’s hoping you’re both practicing the kind of social isolation you know you wanted to be doing in the first place. Until the crisis is past, anyway…
