Ah yes… this writing thing. It seems I fell off the bandwagon ages ago. It’s not
that there wasn’t anything to say, it’s that I’m sure it was all excrutiatingly
boring. And it was. Who needs to hear a weekly laundry list or a store shopping
For a while now I’ve been contemplating going back into the hobby of making models,
and a couple weeks ago I had a “it’d be really cool if this was made” moment. It was
also a day I was puttering about on Ebay and lo and behold, there was a model there
for my “it would be cool” item. It so happens that the “it would be cool item” has
triggered my interest in model making again. And here I am, having decided that if
I’m going to be going down this road again I might as well keep track of my progress
this time around.
Back when I was working on models as a hobby several years ago I never took any
photos of what I was doing and the completed results, some of which I have stored in
boxes, and the in progress kits were tossed during a house move a few years back. I
couldn’t tell you why I got rid of them, but I did. The tally there was a partially
finished Deep Space Nine station kit, a mostly finished Runabout kit (from DS9), and
I can’t remember what I did with the Deep Sea Transport model from Seaquest. I don’t
remember if I kept that one or not, and since I haven’t unearthed that box yet, I
won’t know for sure.
I’d love to get my hands on another Stinger kit from Seaquest and paint it the way I
originally wanted, which was a blue gradient, the kit I finished ended up being a
solid metallic blue. I probably have a better chance of witnessing pigs fly than to
find a kit for that.
I’m digressing. What I want to try to do with this incarnation of this site is to
keep track of what I’m working on, along with various other geeky bits and baubles.
I lost interest in writing about mundane things ages ago, and I think I can get
geeky down much easier.
