Oh yeah, Im starting High school on Tuesday so updates will come a bit slower due to the time im free to model.



So how's school? Is your school system doing virtual classes, or are you doing in-person, at-school stuff? Or a mix of the two?

INSPIRATIONAL: You're the one that inspires me son. Must be something in the water there in my neighbor to the south.

You stay safe, and give every bit as much of your talents to your education as you obviously do to modeling. Our future as a country depends upon it.

Just as a update I think Im going to pause my Greyhound build for a little while or at least until holiday break, because there's a lot of work left and i want to move onto a fairly easy build ie. Revell's 1/72 premium edition Gato class sub! Its a scale i'm comfortable with and should be fairy quick. Im planning on doing a build log for it so look out for it in early September. So i guess what i'm saying is i'm going to put this build on the back burners for a month or so or until i'm inspired to do some scratch building. Also if your interested look out for my Gato build log!

That's the best way to go. As soon as your loose some enthusiasm, move on to something else. Its why my Missouri is back on the shelf and I am building, of all things, a Willy's Jeep. Simple, easy and (for the most part) fun little build to get the juices flowing again.

Yah i know what you mean Rory, I have like 6 models on da shelf of doom... (Most armor) And what do i pick of all things as a "simple" build; A 52 inch long Submarine with a wood deck and loads of PE! ( Not to mention riveting the whole thing and adding oil canning....)

(My parents wonder why I find this fun... )
