My wife enrolled for a course to add to her credentials. However, there are no online options, she has to drive 70 miles (an average of 1.5 hours) one way to attend a class held on Sundays. She will be on campus from 8AM through 4PM. Rather than have her drive alone, I volunteered to accompany her. That way she'll have a driving buddy. I can wait for her 8 hours in the lunchroom. What to do in 8 hours? Build a model!
Here is my mobile kit building gear!
Most of my tools are in this rolling case.
I am going to start working on Takom's Kit 2041, T-55AM.
I do have backup entertainment (the portable hard disk contains lots of documentaries). Background noise or just in case I get bored building.
Here's my setup for the next 8 hours.
Watching/listening to Calvin Tan's Painting Figures DVD while building the T-55.
AC was running at a minimum. Good thing I brought a fan along.
Taking only about 30 minutes break for lunch, this is how far I got working from 8AM-4PM. Didn't find the need to read my scale modelling books.
I had 8 hours of scale model building and my wife is happy with company for the long drive. I'd say it is a win/win situation. I have 4 more Sundays like these to go. I might start working on some other kits too!
