I've been thinking about building a Tank from the World of Tanks game for a while now. When I noticed on their site that they were having a model build competition, I thought it was now or never!
Anyway, I decided to build a Tamiya KV-2 and camouflage it in the scheme my 'in-game' tank is camouflaged in.
Considering that I haven't actually finished a model in about 6 or 7 years I thought 3 weeks to complete a kit was being extremely ambitious!
But I ordered the kit and got on with it. I figured I could procrastinate and dream indefinitely or I could just shut-up and get on with it!
So I've had to discipline myself a lot and concentrate on getting the model built!
I worked out that by sitting with the family in the TV room at a very small table with a magnified light watching Game of Thrones (series 1 right up to as far as I could get with series 2) I was able to cut and sand and watch all at the same time!
I've also been keeping watch on how much time it has taken me to get this far...........
............. 12 and a half hours so far.
The original closing date was May 31st, but thankfully it has now been extended to June 10th! :)
Now, I must keep going!
