We chatted over the number of projects on the go. And then began just cleaning up the workbench. Lots and lots of stuff, which we eventually decided was detritus; the flotsam and jetsom of the hobby, was consigned to the wheeliebin (if you don't have wheelie bins where you are, this is what they are).
So we had made a bit of space. Which normally, I'd promptly fill with another rushed project and then grind to a halt when I ran out space. I think I must have conveyed how daunting it was to have such a lot to do.
Karitas asked me how I planned to approach things. I suggested that one model a week, perhaps setting aside Thursday nights, would enable me to eat the elephant one mouthful at a time.
He had other ideas. He was not daunted. He was inspired. He was sure that with a little gumption, we could forgo the modest game he had already prepared for. We could built tweleve DKK Leman Russ before dinner.
So we did. Learning points for me are:
- Allowing yourself to be drawn along with someone elses enthusiam can pay handsome dividends.
- Two people working together can build more Leman Russ than two people working in isolation can in the same time. Sharing hobby time with someone else is fun. Sounds dirty, I'm not used to fun.
- The generousity of people I have met on line and perhaps in person only a handful of times remains humbling.
- Twelve Leman Russ in an afternoon is achievable for two people.
Got some hobby mojo here, looking forward to next week.
