The only big mistake that actually came out fairly good was when I first tried my hand at airbrushing. I was working on a Lightening, attempting to paint it a nice "Lightening Bolt Blue." As with most modelers on their first attempt at airbrushing, I mixed the paint WAY too thin. After about 5 coats, though, it began to take on a battle-damaged, wheathered look that turned out pretty cool. Other than that, most of my mistakes end up in file 13.

A wise man once said, "Learn from the mistakes of others. You don't have enough time in your life to make them all."

There have been several threads dedicated to modelling mistakes. The question I would like to pose here is this:
Is there a modelling mishap that you had that actually turned out to be that next "tip of the month" or an unexpected scratch-build that turned out to be a show-stopper? How did you overcome those mistakes and become a better modeller because of it? Being able to work through our mistakes and turn them into masterpieces is one of the most important skills a modeller can cultivate so lets help each other out here.
