It’s really difficult not to get completely discouraged…

Weekend update with pictures from the build gathering, pictures of Manny’s finished 1/4 scale Ayane kit, and of course some Saz progress. What does this have to do with the rather morbid title.

Labor Day Weekend Update

Weekend update. A good amount of work was accomplished on Kanu over the weekend, some rework to resculpt a broken/missing piece, and a build gathering capped out the events of the long Labor Day weekend. Because of the amount of hard alcohol consumed, I spent the day recovering. I’m still not 100%, but at least I’m no longer orally evacuating last night’s liquid consumption.
