I've just noticed that my page-read counter has gone over 50,000. This would be a good time to give my heartfelt thanks to all the readers who have spent the time to take the occasional look at whatever weird stuff I spew out. Or at least that one guy who looked at the first page 50,000 times. 

My entire purpose in beginning this blog was to try and present modelling in a forthright positive light. There is so much negativity on some of the forums that I frequent. I wanted to show that models could be built, that if they aren't perfect it is not the end of the world, that enthusiasm can sometimes be shown to take the place of talent, that 1 mm is not a dealbreaker for everyone. I really am serious about being comfortable being a Profoundly Average Modeller, and will try to evangelize the concept where and when I can. 

Of course even I violate those principles on occasion (see recent rant), so, again, I appreciate everyone's patience and forbearance. Back to the bench! 


  1. Congratulations on your 50,000. Having discovered your blog, have been impressed with your candor and truthfulness regarding this massive, "plastic attaching, correctly or not colored, displaying for fun/pain" , hobby we indulge in.
    Heres to the next 50,000 . Cheers

  2. Hola
    Estoy totalmente de acuerdo contigo. En mi blog lo comento continuamente y estoy siempre defendiendo el trabajo fuera de caja (OOB).
    Sin embargo la presion en el medio del modelismo plastico es muy grande. Si te presentas en una expo de modelos con un buen OOB, este siempre esta en desventaja frente a otros modelos con resinas, photo etcheds y otros agregados.
    Cuando he hablado del asunto con otros colegas, la mayoria se limita a hacer silencio.
    Pareciera que si no tratas de hacer cada modelo exprimiendo al maximo tus habilidades y la cuenta de banco, estas cometiendo un delito.
    Sin embargo soy un convencido del modelismo sin complicaciones, solo hay que disfrutarlo.
