    Modelling Frustration

    Post  in nannu pec on Tue Jan 26, 2010 2:33 pm

    My modelling comarades in arms please I beg you to share this heart breaking happening with me Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad
    This morning....I cried.....I swore....I banged my head against the wall of my stinking small workshop...I went berserk, crazy, ballistic...aything else !!!!! I don't know I was going to explode literally.
    bom bom bom
    I was attaching the rear turret and when I had it in postion .....I lifted my hand, hit the main mast ...broke it....tore all the rigging and anything that was attached to it.....which I worked and painted working from the inside to the outside beforehand....an absolute disaster.....6 months work....It was only the calming voice of my wife Rina and about 3 mugs of tea and a tranquillizer pill that stopped me from shattering the damm model to pieces.... Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad
    So after about 2 hours I calmed down and started taking the midle superstructure and the rigging down bit by bit to start allover again Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad
    So now I have to work overtime to get this jinksed beast ready....
    Well that's it....I just wanted to share my frustrations with you and God help me for all the swearing I have said...I am ashamed at myself Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed and I was sooooo happy how the model was turning out....
    see you tommorrow...

    OMG!! I'm speechless my friend!! So sorry to hear about such a misfortune. We can all understand (a little bit)what you're going through right now coz it's something that every modeller dreads. What can one say Smile except for...maybe the usual "cheer-up could have been something worse"? I know it's not going to make you better Crying or Very sad

    WHAT A SHAME NANNU PEC Sad YOU HAD THE AUDICITY TO SWEAR LIKE A SAVAGE lol!

    We are all human bruv so at a time like that which we all have gone thru at some/several points in our respective modelling careers Laughing , God grants us UNLIMITED SWEARING CREDIT for about 5mins or so then you have to STOP Twisted Evil and then START to REPAIR the SOUL 1st and foremost and then the material damage incurred by your clumsiness/savageness lol!

    Hope you're smiling Nannu Pec and have gathered the bits n pieces to restart from scratch Sad

    I'm sure you'll pull thru this dire moment and come back firing on all cannons cheers

    See you tomorrow and please tell us ALL what happened once again lol!

    Sorry to hear of the mishap Lou. i don;t know what i would have done, but no matter what i don;t think i would ever get to the point of throwing out the model. i would have done what you did (including all the cursing) and attacked the beast again to restore it to its former glory, something i know you will manage to do successfully so come on and get going so that we can see the finished beauty. you are the master!! Piece of cake for a multiple UK National Champion

    Lou, I can perfectly understand what you have felt when the accident with mast happen, one advise keep cool. Such things happen to me on a fairly regular occasions, just today, managed to break the front wheel well doors of the crusader , it shot away and could not find it. After a exhaustive search scratch Shocked i could not find it (in the meantime blood pressure skyrocketed and I was grumbling alone) found it in the thinner jar a meter away Sad . No need to comment what happened next................ confused The crusader had a lucky escape today cause I was going to catapult the whole thing and no arrested landing, just a barrier - the wall Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad .
