- Finals are inbound, so prolly nothing new will be posted in the nearest time;
there are no news regarding the Child's Day parade at the Armament Museumnvm, there will be a static exhibition on June 4th apparently, I might go there for an hour or two.
- Decided I won't be attending the Aerofestival Air Show; I don't feel like going alone.
- I seem to have some serious case of modeller's block; I have several models in various states of advancement, but whenever I try to finish them, I always encounter some problems (usually related to painting).
Lately, I've been working on: AH-1 Cobra (1/72, rather poor kit from Mastercraft; generally finished painting, with the exception of canopy and rotor, but the decals shattered and I need to get new ones), F4U-5 Corsair (Revell's 1/72 kit; I'm considering getting some French decals for that one, but every time I try to paint it, the paint either thickens prematurely or it gets contaminated with some particles and I can't get the smooth surface of Corsair's skin ), Fairey Swordfish (1/72; again, there is something weird going on with my paints; I can't tell if that's because of the brushes or because I use spirit solution as thinner) and converting Revell's 1/700 destroyer HMS Kelly into ORP Piorun (same class, just different camouflage). Also thanks to my immense stupidity, I almost ruined my 1/72 Su-34's wing; I was trying to get rid of an old paint using paint solvent (standard paint, not modelling ones) and the plastic started to melt - just like when you touch it with glue (turned out it was just that my brake fluid was old and a new one got rid of the paint perfectly, but the wing was permanently scarred)
I think the big problem for me is that I get hyped for a certain theme easily (e.g. since the beginning of this year: aircraft used by Yugoslav Partisans; photoreconaissance aircraft (after seeing Airfix's Spitfire PR.XIX); Polish Navy; U.S. naval planes in French Aeronavale; Fleet Air Arm right after the Second World War (Suez Crisis etc.); the Vietnam War), but said hype also subsides just as easily; and after that, I don't feel like working on a model, even if all it needs is putting on decals or finishing the paintjob.
I probably won't be buying anything new in the nearest time, since I have so many models to finish.
