The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

A question about interest….


Recommended Posts

I have a question to see if there is any real interest in the truck builds that have shown up here a bit lately. I am asking for my own edification. I do understand this is primarily an aviation model interest site, with a few  tanks and the very odd race car tossed in. I ask because I don’t want to waste anyone’s time or fill the site with stuff that is of little interest. And I’m not looking for paise or faux interest. As you have seen trucks are a huge interest of mine and with a lifetime playing trucks this does become a passion . I just don’t want to bore you guys. You won’t offend me if you reply to this saying truck builds are of no interest to you. I will understand. Just curious.

I'm with Phil, please keep posting your builds. It's not something I would attempt but that doesn't mean I'm not interested in the processes and the outcomes you can achieve.

Thanks Gus, a friend of mine is doing steller scratch building ( not me, I can’t cut a straight line ) and I suggested he post it and he thought most weren’t too interested and that is why I asked the question.

I always watch these builds with interest. I like to see any builds, especially

if they demonstrate skills I'm not familiar with. I like to see the scratch building

and detailing of these builds. So, please continue.

Jeff, my vote is very much in the keep going with them. 

Your builds generally go far beyond "it's only a model" and get into the background of the vehicles and their many nuances. 

As for not being a plane or AFV,  that's fine by me. My stash is a healthy mix of a variety of subjects and I like that they're all welcome here.

Thanks Kevin, I hear what you are saying about the lost love. I bet you cud build a detailed car that wud be spectacular with all the details. It took me a while to get back into the big iron and I actually find I miss them. I guess thats why I’m back to building them to a level, hopefully a little better than the first time. …. Cooking eh? Ok NOW we have to have a cooking thread, and share recipes , and Carl is the BBQ King of Canada. So there is a huge resource there🤭😆😇

Thanks, and your reasons are why I look at them all as well.

Wrong question to me, Jeff. It´s a modeling site and sometimes you have to generate some interest while showing something different. Be the advocate of your niche of the hobby. I can only add, I posted many strange subjects here, some where widely followed others less. 
With your quality truck building and weathering and your live time experience with the subject, it´s exciting for me to watch your trucks and other kits grow.
To me, posting a WIP is not only giving, it´s also taking, in form of background information, or input about techniques or skills needed and I was rarely disappointed. 
Like Hubert said :D.

Cheers Rob

Wow. Thanks Rob, I never ever thought of it in those terms. I have never really done any WIP’s publicly until Martin ‘encouraged’ me to do so and this site was ‘my first’🤭. I have always just built for myself and watched very closely to everyone else's builds in awe and hoped that one day I would have enough talent to turn out something decent. I only posed the question to make sure that I wasn’t wasting anyone’s time or taking up space. Also like most of the guys here I go in ‘spurts’…. I do aircraft for a long time and then back to the big trucks and cars. I have always thought that ‘my stuff’ is not good enough to be on the same site as the amazing talents I see here everyday. There are certainly no duff builds here and it is exciting to see whats new , daily.

I’m kind of glad I asked the question, and I’m sure there are guys rolling their eyes but as Carl said ‘a healthy mix of variety’ is a good thing, and I thank you (all) for embracing (my) passion. And I will continue to build and post. When I do, and if there is any question about the rigs ask as you usually do, I’m no expert but am excited to share what I know. Who knows, maybe one or two of you guys mite take a chance and try something completely different.  Many thanks for the feed back guys. My apologies if it was a  stupid question to ask.

But it’s not just so so. Are we our own worst critics?

Probably I am really critical on my wood almost an obsession! I once did a piece of wood three times because of a .010" gap I finally got down to a few thousands and let it go.;)
