rtropp Posted August 6, 2013 Share #1 Posted August 6, 2013 (edited) Yes, another Syren. This one a little different from the others. I am a rank beginner who is learning kit building as I go. That means that unlike some of the other builds, this will probably be more of a treatise on what not to do. Thank goodness for the build logs on the site. I would not have gotten even this far without them. While I began the kit in May, 2013, I held off on a build log until I was sure I would this was a hobby I was going to continue working on. A number of builders have been urging me to create the log and, having gotten to the point of being ready to plank, I figured it was time to make the plunge. I have been taking photos from the start of the build so I have history from the beginning. I am not normally a handy person, clumsy is more like it. I work slowly to allow myself time to think about what I will be doing. At the same time as I am building the kit, I also work with fine arts projects. I bought an airbrush to help with painting the kit, but I have already begun to test it my fine arts projects. The sunroom in my house is my studio and I have a pretty nice set up with mostly hand tools and a Dremel. I am converting the kit build photos to a smaller format so they will upload and should begin having something up fairly soon. I look forward to not only the input from more experienced builders but also the conversations that make this an enjoyable social activity. I will start with a picture of my build as it is today, then backtrack to earlier phones.
