Well, I am officially 1 month into the 2013 modeling project.
Last month continued the slowdown that I experienced after getting off to a roaring start for the first two weeks of the year. I got in one session for a total of 1 hour and 55 minutes. That brings the yearly total to 12 hours. That would be a yearly average of 156 if I can keep up the pace.
Sadly not a lot of substantive progress was made. Other than an initial coat of paint on the 700th scale SSBN, everything is about where it was. I keep promising some photos, but life keeps getting in the way. So much so that I should have posted this on Tuesday but didn’t get around to it till Thursday. 😦

As interesting as US politics is and will be over the next few years, I think that by far, the most intersting place for political and societal developments will be in China. Here is an example. Where will this lead? Will it lead to reform? My bet is that like the US, it will lead to repression.
Prof. Reynolds comes up with a great idea. This is a tax scheme every voter, no matter their party, oought to be able to support.

Time: 10:26 a..m.- 11:17 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.-10:04 p.m.
Session time: 1 hour 55 minutes
Total time for the Year: 12 hours 1 minute.
Two separate sessions on this day. Did not make a lot of substantive progress. Paint on the SSBN, but it needs another coat due to my overly thinned paint. Began work on a long-term project on the new Sword Ki-44. The P-40 and the MiG-21 are in a long term holding pattern.
While on the one hand I find these people’s behavior deplorable, on the other hand, they are only making rational decisions based on the system that has been set up. IN any event, such a system cannot last and when it crashes, these folks are going to be the ones most hurt by the crash and the ones most upset that their free stuff is gone. That isn’t a receipe for orderly social change.
