finally they are put together.
Now painting them is another issue. That will probably never happen,
but at least I don't have to worry about losing any pieces over time.
I'm finding it easier to deal with the hobby by deciding that just the
building of the kit may be enough for me. People spend a fortune on a
nice dinner, and then in an hour or so, it and your money are gone.
While spending a small fortune on kits, the "pleasure" of being able
to still figure out the instructions, etc, finding a harmless
diversion from life's hassles may be enough. I seriously doubt I'll
ever build the gazillion diorama plans I have, or finish a kit with
paint and decals. The stash will most likely end up as cannon
fodder for the old trusty Crosman bb rifle.
