Hi Michael - beautiful work, as you've shown throughout the build! Yes, the loss of mojo - a bummer indeed! I've set a recent project down for a while - I realized I was just working to get it finished - Bad approach!! Quality was beginning to slip, and I was looking for shortcuts. So, rather than slipping into creeping mediocrity, I began fooling around with a different subject and scale. Seems to be doing the trick, as I'm now thinking positive thoughts about my "forgotten project" again, and will get back to, and finish it!
Good luck with whatever you decide - I don't mind waiting a while to see your great build get wrapped up!
Thanks Nick will be getting back into the panzer 3 and I'm checking what colour schemes to use and further battle damage.
Massive build mate! Keep up the good work. As Nick said a break might be the best thing so you don't rush for a finish. Either way it will be there waiting to be finished hey.
Are you going to start a new thread for your Fury build ?
Thanks Ultra_Aussie ,yes the Fury Build will also be a build blog and not as long .
Oh, yeah! That's EXACTLY why I have several projects going at any given time. Tedium, especially with a massive project such as this one, can be a strong deterrent to actual completion. Go ahead and take a break- Start your Sherman! You can always alternate your work between the two projects...
Presently, I have a DRAGON 1/35 early M4, an AFV CLUB 1/35 Dodge WC57/56 Command Car, a 1/48 TAMIYA semi-fictitious P-51D, of the 336th Fighter Squadron, 4th Fighter Group, Spring, 1945, a 1/25 kit-bashed/scratch-built and augmented with aftermarket PE, resin, and aluminum billet parts, of a "Traditional" East Coast-style 1950s/1960s Ford Model A Coupe Hot Rod with a Ford Flat-head V8 project car, and one of my prized possessions, an HO brass New York, Ontario & Western Rwy Y-2 Class "Heavy" 4-8-2 Steam Locomotive by NEW JERSEY CUSTOM BRASS in my paint booth... Yeah, you could say that my interests are pretty diversified...
Dennis I admire how many projects you have on.Well done.
I ran into the same problem whilst working on my last big dio. Hard to stay focused for so long!!
I would periodically take a break and finish a small project or maybe two,just to give myself the feeling of completion. It turned out to be a good remedy. Of course,not everyone is the same and I think you will figure out a solution. Don't give up though,as this is a great project! It will be spectacular when it's done. Heck,it already is!
Thanks Jerry,I'm still partly involved with the panzer 3 on the trailer, so in terms I have not completely lost focus.
Have ripped in an old Opel Blitz Radio Van with crew ,with the bells and whistles for the model Art Challenge,
