I have 5 Hot Wheels downstairs in my workshop right now. I have painted and stripped them about 4 times each. Every time, the paint comes out almost right, but not quite. I'll try to fix it with a brush, but I'm sure you all know how well that works.

I didn't used to be a perfectionist. I really dislike perfectionists.

Let me ask you this, were your kit projects perfect? If your like me, No! :lol:
Just enjoy the process and have fun each one will build on the next!
I'm going to start a wrecking yard, some of the guys here do some cool
stuff and there's no perfection necessary! It's a junk yard!!!!! :lol:

No, they are never perfect, but there's a big difference between a goof at 1:25 scale and one at 1:64.

I do enjoy the process, I've just realized I'm getting picky about how my 1:64's turn out. Just an observation I thought I'd share.

I know exactly where you're coming from tolenmar. There always seems to be something that spoils that seemingly unobtainable level of perfection we strive for. It's a rare occurrence when it comes, so just do the best you can and try to learn from the goof up. Remember, creating perfection isn't just not having an error occur... It's knowing how to fix that error so it disappears when you fix it. If plan A fails miserably, next time a patch or repair is required, try plan B,or C or D! :lol: Practice makes perfect in it's purest form.

Tolenmar

Starting with 1/25s for me told me to expect that I am not going to nail it every time. I agree with Mr John - have a blast it's trial and error. But I am also picking up what you are putting down too.
