    Jan 27, 2009, 4:45 PM - Fett A.D.D... #1

    Argh...

    Maybe it's just the nature of the hobby/obsession, but do you guys have a hard time focusing one one thing at a time? First, I started working on my RF and stalk, then I got my Fang helmet and started working on that, then I went back to the RF, and right now I'm marking and cutting out parts for the shin tools...

    I hope I'm not the only one that can't stick to one task at a time...

    i totally agree...especially when you hit a "wall" if you will, of something you are not sure of doing...like i have my jp pretty much painted, my snaps on the back of the armor, just a few examples...well, i am afraid ill mess up the weathering on the jp, and that i wont get the snaps lined up right on the vest...so i move on to the next thing...

    I'm the same but it works! I think things actually run smoother, don't you?

    Depends on your definition of smoother

    Smoother to me is all things falling into place without moderate to major work involved...

    Example, I was starting to scratch an RF lens out of clear CD cases, but in the long run, it's proving to be more taxing than to just buy a clear plexi or lucite one (if I can find one)...

    Then, I moved onto the stalk... I got a piece of 3/16 hollow styrene tube, stared to cut, measure, cut, screw up, start over, buy nylon washers, start cutting and measuring again, when I could save time and buy a hollow BM one...

    Got Fang's cool bucket a week or so ago and started cutting out the visor and keyslots, and trying to clean up the booboo's resultant from his youngun peeking too soon...

    so I moved on to the shin tools... I used WOF's excellent plans, started cutting out styrene sheets to layer together for the shin tools, the point where I'm at now...

    From the beginning, I figured I'd start one part and finish it, go to the next and finish it, and yada, yada, yada, yeno?

    And, I really wish I knew how to cast stuff... the shin tools I'm doing are coming out pretty dang well for scratchbuilt if I do say so meself...
