Thanks for sharing the pics and keep up the good work.
when I decided to build another one, I thought I was nuts too. Then as I started on it I realized something.

If Iím not working, I donít know what to do with myself and get anxiety. So when Saturday comes, I work. And Sunday. Times 52 weeks a year. When I just canít work any more, I drug myself to sleep to escape the anxiety. Not a healthy lifestyle.

I find when I work on the model, I relax. Same with the car but Iím just not up to the heavy work of the car.

The other benefit Iíve found is that when I go to bed, instead of figuring out work shit, I mentally engineer the project - working out the electronics, structural stuff, assembly order, etc. My mind never stops and, again, this is an escape.

I donít think Iíll start building more models. But for now, this one is a doozy. Iím betting it takes six months.
