Just a wee post, an observation about scale really. Not scale as in 1/72 or 20mm or whatever, mind you, but of sheer scale - as the visit to Mr. Bob's Aladdin's cave of models on Sunday highlighted how my noob worries over getting just a couple of models completed pales into significance when compared to the feats of the serious war gamer.
These represent four boxes of PSC's T-34/76/85 set (with, apparently a fifth box on order), so my modest project looks a bit pitiful in comparison. This issue of sheer scale in modelling production was something that struck me when I saw Bob's collection on Sunday and is a little scary when you are still struggling to complete individual kits.
What's quite irksome for a newbie like me is that having seen a few of Gunbird's projects now I have a sneaking suspicion he will have all of these T-34s finished in the same time that it will take me to do my two models!
On a more positive note, it's interesting to see - when you examine the photo closely - that Gunbird is doing some of the very same improvements to his PSC T-34s that I have done on mine (notably the addition of the brass wire grab rails and fender modifications). So I may be slow, but at least I seem to be going in the right direction!
