Proud of myself? Yeah, I actually saw this through to completion. I think anyone that finishes a kit should be proud of themselves.
Full of themselves though? Definitely not. The video I would hope would inspire those to build. I love an ARF just like the next guy. But the sense of accomplishment in a task this large was rewarding in itself. Some don't have the space or like you said, the patience and time to do a build like this. I have a whole room dedicated to just this. And its not a small room.
I don't ever want to see this hobby come down to just ARF's. They're great to get something up in the air quick, but the feeling of building something yourself is hard to describe. It feels awesome!
