Silly Models

Tip for October 2010:
Contest Mistake #5: Why So Serious?

This last tip is one that all too many modelers seem to have forgotten: don't take any of this too seriously. It is, after all, a hobby. That means that you should be doing it because you enjoy it, not because you can get a lot of trophies. If you want a lot of trophies, become a trophy collector. Go to contests because you think you've done some pretty good work that you'd like to share, and you'd like to learn something from other modelers. Enjoy the hobby for what it is, and don't get upset by the results of a single subjective contest.
