This Monday Motivational is a little different because it’s my own stuff, I’ve got pictures of two projects that were till recently stalled. The scratch built flat car stalled since August and the Proto87 track for my speeder shed diorama since March. Both stopped in frustration, the flat car because it didn’t sit flat empty on the bolsters and the track because it was frustrating and glue wasn’t holding things together. So what changed?
I wrote a post about goals and these are two of the projects that were on my short term list. The flat car itself was a really silly reason, I had finished the bolsters and installed the trucks but found it wouldn’t sit flat without weight on it. A truly simple fix that I just wasn’t motivated to do. Yesterday I had a few minutes of time and decided to take a small file and try to level out the bolsters. A couple minutes and it was sitting nice and that movivated me to paint the trucks with the metallic steel paint as a base for weathering (side note it is sitting flat in the photo, I just took it from a low angle to show the painted trucks and it ended up looking like it tilted)
