Model Build Gathering 48

The June model build gathering for a number of us saw very little building. Considering that the past couple of build gatherings have had some fairly heavy non stop building; the group of us felt like just hanging out and relaxing for this gathering. The build started off slow, but we got a few new folks for the gathering. I did get about three or so pieces sanded before the alcohol started flowing. With Duke over; Kenken as our new addition to the household; and Latte, Nathan’s puppy who is Kenken’s little brother, the house was up to 5 corgis.

April’s Model Build Gathering at Funaka’s

April model build gathering. Dan, (Funaka) convinced his wife to let him hold the April build gathering at his house. It was a smaller gathering, which was nice and relaxing and probably not as taxing on Dan playing build gathering host for the first time. We had a few late comers, and Manny managed to only glance at the build gathering thread and showed up at my house before realizing that the gathering was not actually at my house this month. It was nice to not have to play host, and I got to concentrate on my own projects. I actually got quite a bit of model work done, more than I have ever had in the more recent build gatherings which is a nice change of pace.

Weekend update and December Model Build Gathering

It was a decently busy weekend. I went to my friend’s mom’s house and learned and made a bunch of tamales of different flavors. I’m finally started up on my latest project that I actually sorta started a few years back when I first bought it, but shelved. Then there was the build gathering. This one was very interesting. And whilst I tell the story later, I will definitely come off as a complete asshole, but you just had to be here to fully understand and grasp the big picture. Regardless it was another great gathering. At the end of the night, we piled up all the guitars, for a group picture. I’m sorta cheating, as the left handed, ultra dusty, guitars are mine… but at least I have some variety in that there’s an electric, acoustic, and classical guitars. And unfortunately, I had forgotten to snap pictures during the gathering, but I did snap a few things off my phone, a little too late however.
