Sprue Cutters Union #13

I missed last week.  My bad, but work has gone crazy.

This weeks topic is: – How do you prepare for your next build? –

This one is difficult for me.  I used to research obsessively before a build.  It contributed to a bad case of AMS and a two year period where I never finished a kit.

To break this pattern I started building with no research and pretty much out of the box.  This got me building again and enjoying modeling, but I’ve had an instance or two where I’ve finished a model and then found a flaw or detail that I should have added but didn’t.  That made me feel a bit bad.

Right now I am working on a happy medium.  I do some research and preparation, but not the obsessive amount I use to.  Its working for me to some extent.

Here are some other union posts on the subject.
