As I got started I kind of went into a perfectionist, productivity-killing research mode. That, above all things cited above, has delayed my completion. Seasoned modelers probably take for granted making hinges and sanding things, but this is new to me. The instructions are not bad, but I have found it necessary to look at older build logs to ensure I'm not messing up my Dandy.
Paul Johnson's Airfield Models.com
was invaluable in helping me get started, but what I really wanted were video examples of how to sand. I had seen where JWarren had posted an excellent tutorial on soldering
, but in the end I just needed to roll up my sleeves and get started.

I've got some initial pictures to post, but I just realized that Mrs. Controlled Fall and the little Controlled Fall are both napping so I'm going to sneak out and sneak in a run while the weather is nice! More later!
