This weeks topic

– How has living in the small scale world influenced your day-to-day view or understanding of the 1:1 world? –

There are a couple of ways to approach this topic.  For me, I think that the biggest influence that modeling has had on me is the way I look at nearly everything and wonder, “How can I use that in modeling?”

I can’t walk thru a Michaels or other craft store without looking at everything and wondering if I can use that in modeling.  Same thing applies in the home improvement store or the office supply store.  I like modeling tools and look at things and wonder if they can be a tool in my hobby.  Harbor Freight is a particular challenge.  I nearly always walk out of there with something.  THis is despite the fact that my ship is filled with tools that I haven’t yet used, or used only once.  I think this comes from the fact that I know my limitations as a modeler, and I am looking for anything that might make me “better”.

Here are some other answers to the question:

Scale Model Workbench
Migrant’s Wanderings
The Eternal Wargamer
