  2. Thanks for sharing, Tom!
    Coming back to modeling is a good thing, even due to those “unforeseen” circumastances.

A couple of weeks ago, before this new, 2nd generation, lockdown, I had a chat with one of the owners of a local shop here in Lisbon and he told me 2020 had been one of the best years, if not the best, for his business. I guess this article hit the nail for the reason behind such uplift in sales. Thank you for sharing it with us

    For me as a writer and modeler, the past year has been “Spend the day in a room, not dealing with people? What’s new?” 🙂

    • The article says “he first completed a series of 1/24 scale rally cars.” And I suspect he used to do a lot of modeling, but then stopped (why else would he have a stash?). It’s like riding a bicycle again. One or two rides and your skill is right back where it used to be. 🙂

  6. Great to hear people find a way back to simpler times doing craft.
    Thanks for sharing this story.

  7. It is really good to see people enjoying hobbies and you can do it without a mask. 1/144 or 1/1 it is good for the soul but maybe not so good for your fingers.

  8. The pandemic increased my production. I finished 12 over the last 12 months. I normally manage 8-9 per year.
