I plan to write about the different hobbies I have take up, the ones I have researched, and my future hobby dreams--and believe me, I have lots of those. I will also mix in amusing stories of my hobby foibles, as well as thoughts on the state of hobby pursuits in the twenty-first century. On top of all that, I may find time to review tools, hobby kits, and anything else. In essence, I am promising a mixed bag of tricks.
I think I have covered the foibles and the amusing stories, but I really haven't updated you on my hobby progress. That is where this blog comes in.
Amongst my many hobbies, building plastic models ranks pretty high. I build cars, military vehicles, Japanese castles, and science fiction subjects. One of my ambitions is to build a car themed diorama. It was this in mind that I started the Fujimi Tools kit.
I really liked the subject of this kit because it was a little different. I am attracted to more unusual pieces. I have seen some nice finished examples of this on the internet. My pieces are coming along, but, as you can see, they need a little finishing.
I should point out (because I have learnt that there are some very smart people inhabiting the internet) that the engine is not from the Fujimi kit. I am also working on a Ford Fairlane--but the engine is all that I have managed to finish.
I also recently finished the Schwimmwagen. (okay, I haven't added the crew, but I probably won't)
That is where things stand, today. As far as models go. You'll find out the progress, or lack of progress, in future blogs.
