You can't worry about making them perfect. You just have to worry about making them for you.

Making mistakes is common. None of us get it perfect. You just have to keep making those mistakes so you can get better at fixing them.

Keep the end goal in sight and work through it.


Besides, that kit is a bear to whip into shape. Kudos for finishing it.

Look's good to my eye's.

At least you didn't "hack" your way through like I did with this one...

You may have noticed,.... that ther is no propeller on it ......

I don't want to talk about it ........

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

Not quite sure why you are being so hard on yourself, Mike. Your model looks pretty good from over here.

I am curious what the **** was supposed to be. It is usually pretty easy to figure the "censored!"'s out, not so much this time.

Edit: AHAH! You got around it!!! YesBalloonsYes

This Revell kit that I've seen built so well by many of you is either going into the trash or will be given away to someone in the neighborhood with kids that might, for a few moments, appreciate the crude attempt.

I seem to be screwing up more and more rather than getting better and better but I'll continue building more kits when the mood dictates.

So many screw ups on this kit I'd be ashamed to post it were it not for my penchent to expose my faulty modeling to a group who can, perhaps, sympathize with my skill level - low for the hobby in general but OK for theraputic purposes :) and push me on to build more.

In the case of this kit I just couldn't get some parts to fit correctly (the fuselage halves on my kit were not aligned correctly) so much sanding, filing and reshaping was in order. I also screwed up some of the decals. I cut the Balkenkreuz on the starboard side of the fuselage poorly and just decided to cover it over with another one that was larger. You can see the old one underneath. Not a pro move. I also couldn't get the canopy forward and main sections to sit closely enough together. I tried but to no avail.

At any rate I hope my next project will find me posting pictures that show some improvement in this hobby of mine.

 Well Flicker has taken the "Camera Roll" section down ... bummer. Hopefully not for long. These microscopic images are all I can post for the moment. I'll repost them to my standard size when I can.

OK, gee whiz, FineScale cut off my "***" in the subject title!!! Why? I've just tried to put it back in the subject title so we'll see if it's cut again.

Now for an attempt to use Postimage to post the pictures that are represented in the thumbnails above:

Success! At least for posting the pictures .. we'll see about the "***" :)
