Two Updates in one Weekend
Yes, a minor miracle, two update in the same weekend!
Spent a few hours cleaning up the overspray and missed areas today with a hairy brush. There was something really fun about removing the masking tape to reveal the White areas of the model, (mostly) untouched. Things would have been a lot easier if I’d have sprayed the model in sub-assemblies, but live and learn eh?!

Excuses and Moaning
It’s been a really busy couple of weeks at work, and with the changes I’ve tried to make since the New Year, it’s been tough getting time in for hobbying.
This hasn’t stopped me watching season after season of GOT of course, but y’know how addictive that show is!
It’s not been a great week for me at work, I’ve been extremely stressed and not feeling particularly happy or satisfied with it – I have a good job, but sometimes the pressure and completely unreasonable deadlines on a large number of projects is just too much. However this stuff is not what this blog is about, so I’ll leave it there.
I’m away next weekend, so I although I’m out this afternoon to see the guys and watch the footy, I knew I had to make at least some progress with the A-Wing, else I’m never going to make finish it.

Christmas, Cockpits and Pilots

A little late, but the world goes on outside of hobbying and blogging.
Not much progress to report, on anything, I’ve mostly been enjoying the Christmas break, and spending time with family. The days fly by that’s for sure this way, but I did squeeze in some model work.

Preparation and More Construction
Most of today’s work was related to preparation to the cockpit parts.

Already Started on the Next Model
With having today off work, and being quite pleased with the result of the X-Wing, I thought I’d crack on with a “new” simple model. Although I still have a Blood Claw on the go, and had started looking at my old Millennium Falcon again, I wanted a smaller model to chip away at too. The one I chose was one I bought around 6 or 7 years ago from eBay; an old AMT/ERTL A-Wing.
