Hey, I actually cropped some scans!

 Modeling is taking up almost all of my time right now. I suspect this may be the new normal for me...models taking the focus in spring, summer and fall and cards taking over in winter. with periodic appearances in the other seasons. Right now modeling is going very well so I'm going to ride that wave while I can. 

I generally don't return to the work bench after dinner. I was doing that, but it was hurting my hands to do that much modeling. So, I in theory would work on cards after dinner, but it usually hasn't worked out. Instead of doing cards, I've been doing modeling stuff on the computer' scanning decals, researching reference photos, etc, or just messing around on facebook, twitter, etc. 

Some time last month I scanned some cards...finally, in early morning hours of July 23rd, I cropped some of them! And of course instead of cropping more I came here and wrote this post, haha. I finally got caught up with the decal's not hard, I've just been exhausted from the trip and scatterbrained. It took maybe 40 minutes to do, but over a period of 2 months. 

Anyway, enjoy some hockey scans.

1 year of my modeling setup

 July 13th marked 1 year of having my permanent modeling setup...setup. I have been spending most of my time on that hobby of late and not doing any card stuff whatsoever. 

I knew having a permanent modeling space would make my building better, but I had no idea how much better it would make it! To celebrate the anniversary, I used PhotoScape to put together this image of all the models I finished at the new permanent workspace, and it turned out to be exactly 100 builds!

I'm having so much fun with modeling right now it may be literally months before I get back to cards. That's's too cold to work on models from circa November to April so it appears my hobbies may be seasonal. 

Thanks for reading, back to building...
