Sprue Cutters Union 17: Go Big or Go Home

Time is a valuable thing for a modeler. Just think of how many projects you would be able to finish in one year alone...assuming you're actually working on them and not getting distracted like we so often do. Never the less, I've finished basically one project a month since beginning this blog back in November of last year - a model here and there, a diorama or two, so on and so forth. Nothing huge, nothing impressive. Whenever I see a modeler complete a truly large project, I always wonder what it would take for me to tackle a model so time consuming. That is why this week I'm asking...


- If you had the resources, would you attempt one HUGE project? -

This means if you had the time, money and inspiration, would you devote it all to that one magnum opus that you have been dreaming about your whole life? It doesn't have to be a diorama either. It doesn't even have to be huge in the scale sense of the word. It could be huge in terms of detail - like totally scratch building the interior of a cut-away P-51? Would you knowingly dedicate a years worth of time, or more to ONE SINGLE EPIC PROJECT?

Remember, all it takes is a passion for this hobby and a blog to go along with it! All you have to do is write a post in response to this topic by Sunday and you can be a member of the Sprue Cutters Union. Take a look at the Sprue Cutters Union page for more detail. Once you've written your post, either email me the link or drop the link in the comment section below.
The goal is to send new readers to our sites, so don't forget to include the links to other modelers' responses when you get an opportunity.
Spread the word.

  3. Man, that's some dedication. I think even if I had the time, I couldn't maintain that amount of interest in one project =0/

    2. Even so, I seem to be able to manage to make my hobbying fit the theme each week, even when the connections aren't immediately obvious. We all have such different points of view, it's great to read.
