Sprue Cutter’s Union #15

This week’s question is a tough one: – What do you think makes an outstanding finished model? –

Man, that is tough.  Like Justice Black is alleged to have said about pornography, “I know it when I see it.”

An outstanding finished model jumps off the table.  Many times it is an outstanding finish.  For dioramas, many times it is the story that it tells the moment you look at it.  Many times with a car, it is all the tiny details added.

I don’t know what makes an outstanding finished model, I just know that I know it when I see it, and that I haven’t done one yet….but I keep trying.
