New Group: Build ‘Em or Bin ‘Em
We’ve all got a Shelf of Doom. Most of the time, when we look over what’s there, we can’t remember how it got there. I made a New Year’s Resolution to “build ’em or bin ’em” but clear the SoD by the end of 2021.
I started with this Special Hobby Fiat G.55, which has been there on the SoD since 2007(!) I think it had to do with it being a Serie O and I wanted a Serie I. Then last month one got posted here by Reinhard, and he mentioned that the kit is really a Serie I – which surprised the daylights out of me, but sure enough, what I thought was sprue turned out to be cannon barrels. Found decals to do what I wanted in the decal dungeon. It took about five days for the resuscitation, and when I was done, I liked what I saw so much I asked myself, “Self, WTF were you thinking? This is a good model!”
So I have moved on to two others. The Mojo returns, and interestingly it appears elsewhere than models. I’ll bet that works for more than me.
So, the new group is up. It runs till December 31, 2021. The deal is, you do as many of your SoD projects as you want but YOU HAVE TO FINISH IT BY THE END OF THE YEAR. If not, you bin it and present a photo of it in the trash.
Given what cheapskates modelers are, nobody’s going to want to do that, so there’s a good chance models will get completed.
Let’s see what happens…
