Mike's Output - 2017 was an odd year

Recommended Posts

Without further ado, I give you:

I started the year with good intentions, but despite starting a few kits, I still haven't managed to complete a single one.  The site's taken up a lot of my time in my defence, but I've also suffered from a bit of early departure of my mojo, but I'm resolved to complete SOMETHING this year (2018), even if it's just my little Swedish J-22 and some Bandai Star Wars kits.  Happy New Year to you all, and keep on enjoying your modelling ^_^

Looks like you copied my builds down to the letter Mike, how strange :D

At least you have a rather impressive mammoth Sea King build to show for it... all I've got is some sorry lookin' unpainted and part-assembled airframes :shrug:

The blue is the wrong shade.....

 

Many thanks for your continued nursing of the site though - I didn’t realise how labour intensive it is and it sounded at times as if it was a full time job.

Cheers Trevor - it can be quite time consuming at times, especially with my health limiting my time in the workshop, but I still enjoy it, so it's all good ^_^

Hope your mojo returns! Hope mine does, too :D.

Ditto, although mine never goes, it just kind of tells me I have reviews to do, and email providers to unblock :frantic:  Oh, and the crash of one of my NAS drives the other day was a bit time consuming too.  Transferring 7TB of data over the network isn't fast :tired:

Thanks for the New Year chuckle, Mike. I've just decided to abandon today's building (working on a 32nd scale Lynx) and chill out for a bit before I return to work on the morrow.

 

Your stewardship, care and guidance of the site is always appreciated and I hope that your mojo returns real soon.

You build models as well Mike?

Oh... I thought you were just the tech bloke :shrug:

 

(now before profile 'mysterious' disappears... Mike, you are a Star! Keeping this site going and all the ruffians there within, dealing with life as well and running that strip club, its no wonder you didn't build anything :)

 

May your knives be sharp and your glue sticky in 2018 :)

Cheers Kev - as it happens, I've just been noodling a bit of colour modulation on my J-22 while the wind blows a gale outside the workshop.  The ladders have fallen over again too :owww:

That's a lovely shade of blue Mike, but is it the correct BS shade for the period?:D

We're both in the same boat I think, so welcome to the Doldrums. Let's just hope for a more productive year. At least you've got the cast iron excuse of running the site and keeping this motley crew together. Well done for that and here's to a better year in 2018.

Didn't you build a 1/48 MiG-31 a few weeks ago........  :huh:

That was the beginning of 2016 would you believe? :shocked:Proof.

That made me smile! But it needs a couple of red lines, surely?! I know exactly how you feel...but, BUT just look at the community you're building on this site; I (and I'm sure many others) would be lost without it. Best wishes for 2018.

Thanks for that, and for the other nice comments about the site from the others - it really does mean a lot ^_^

Thanks for your self-sacrifice Mike, you are a true benefactor of modelling kind.

If you think of the positives: I'm sure your modelling related injures are well down on previous years, although I should imagine that you would probably happy substitute the stress and hassle for the occasional scalpel slip.

I hope to see at least a FFVS J-22A on your 2018 yearbook.

That's a definite maybe - I'm just mixing up some paint for the topsides, so unless I snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, there should be at least one for next year :)

LOL. I imagine the site takes up just about all of your time Mike, so we'll let you off! 

 

I hope the mojo returns in 2018.  Thanks for all the hard work you and the other mods put into the site every day
