well hello everyone
« on: May 02, 2022, 02:01:06 PM »
Bout time i did one of these things..

Likes to look at Scotch bottles at the store, Long drooling looks that make store employees relatively nervous.

Mainly was a plastic ship modeller in the 1990s, never got to do more then two planes. A B-25 mitchell in about 1992 and in 2000 i got the time to build a revell monogram BF-109 G-4 or 6

Did build an Arfix ww1 male tank, not bad.



COming back to modelling as a reprieve from photography. Have a hard time getting the urge to take photographs, things feel stunted in that interest of mine. Can only take to many flower and bird photos.

The photography was primarily to be a way to keep my brain working. Working a job that inspires and needs to mental thinking other then "blinking light, hit this button, wait, remove part, repeat" and several concussions in the past. I needed some stimulation. But unfortunately the stimulation was short lived for various things.

Perhaps consider combining your hobbies?

When I was actively modeling I averaged one airplane per year.  After finishing each build I'd reward myself with a fresh bottle of good cognac or brandy, which I would then nurse until the next plane was complete.

Refining that a little further, I toasted my completed Nungesser Nieuport with a snifter of Remy Martin, then my Voss Dr.1 with an Asbach Uralt brandy. I have a nice bottle of Laphroaig single malt whisky awaiting completion of my latest Albert Ball Nie16. (Only problem is I can't build a Rickenbacker SPAD coz I don't care for bourbon whiskey!)

Hah. Now that is some historical accuracy.  Maybe Rickenbacker was a beer drinker.
