Sprue Cutters Union - That Lull Between Projects



There is no doubt that the Sprue Cutters Union has been neglected for a long, long time. I have no other excuse than the fact that I have had other things going on that have kept me out of arms reach of a keyboard for quite some time. Today, though, the clouds have broken and a little sunshine is gleaming down on the once proud blogger carnival we established years ago. While this is a welcome return, I am not saying that it is ready to rise out of the ashes and regain the strength of its former self, so don't get your hopes up.
It seems I have found some time to write merely because I stayed home sick from work today. Sitting on the couch all day, collecting my thoughts, and mucus, I figured it was a good opportunity to resurrect this blog, even if for just a moment.

So, on to the topic. I recently completed Hasegawa's 1/48 F-4E and am ready to assume my next project. While this is a hobby that helps me to relax, at times it can be a lot like work. The break between a finished model and the moment I crack open the cellophane on the next kit can be rejuvenating. The question for this month's SCU response is:

Do you appreciate the lull between builds?

Maybe you're one of those modelers with an endless parade of kits in various states of completion on your workbench where a lull doesn't exist. Or perhaps you are one of those modelers who spends the next month polling the forums on which kit you should tackle next.
Whatever your strategy is, I want to hear it.

Do you have a response? All links to blogged/vlogged responses can be linked in the comment section below or can be posted to the wall on The Combat Workshop's Facebook page. They will be shared from there.

  2. Hi Jon
    Like you I have not had the time to contribute to the union but welcome the idea of it being resurrected to something like it was. Keep in touch and I hope the family are well. I'll look forward to adding my thoughts to my scalemodelworkbench website in the near future!
