Awesome work on this one Leon!! Funny story: When I was younger....and I mean a long time ago. I was 12 or so and just getting into models. Our family was visiting my aunt and uncle and family and it was my cousin Jacky's birthday. My aunt and uncle bought him this kit here and I just thought this was the coolest kit (and still do BTW). I woke up early the next morning at around 7 a.m. and saw that kit just sitting there on his desk. I couldn't resist the temptation to "help him out" and build it for him. I mean c'mon....there was even a tube of glue on his bench too so it was just begging to get built! And so.....I built it....with no paint at all. Jacky was about 17 years old at the time and would've done a lot better job building than I did and it showed when I surprise him with a completed WHITE model with those "Spirit of 57" decals applied. I thought he was going to fall out....and in a bad way.I look back now and laugh my off!!!
Yesterday's gone and Tomorrow aint here yet. Today IS the best day we'll ever have.
stitchdup: The paint booth is fired up and the masking tape is out, its time to get the blue on the porsche so I can hopefully get it decaled tonight

DeeCee: Being able to build at work would make a big difference i reckon mate.

aussiemodler: Im hearing ya mate. I've had this plane build on my bench for my dad for over 12 months and I've done more in the last 3 days then in those 12 months. I think motivation helps also.

stitchdup: I think most of my motivation has been boredom at work, knocking out a couple of curbsides fills in some time cos there really is no work for me to do other than be on the boat all night. If anything happens I phone someone to come and sort it cos I'm not

stitchdup: qualified to do any of it, and most of it needs 2 or more people anyway. All I know how to do is pull the line tight on the winch and even that I can only do in emergencies

aussiemodler: I HATE painting in these Queensland summers, its 1830 32c (90F) and 75% humidity, everything dries to quick.

stitchdup: I dont think i've ever been in that much heat, 24 is hot here, lol

DeeCee: When it's hot, i slap it on very wet, the heat acts as an oven, usually end up with a DEEP gloss.
