So with a massive break from tradition for me, I am bringing the Christmas / New Year’s / January and Wednesday morning Adam’s Corner to you in one hit.
As we enter into our eleventh year of running this silly adventure called Wuiske Models, Jade and I have been somewhat reflective over the last few months.
The last few years have seen some truly massive changes with our business, after releasing the A10 kit in 2011 and the first two RTR mass produced QLD models in 2012, 2013 is shaping up to be one VERY eventful year for us, and for Queensland Modelling in general.
Keith and Addy unwrapped their presents in shifts and Addy decided that she received loads of wonderfully decorated paper. She was less keen on the items contained within her lovely paper, but that was to be expected.
All in all, we had a rather quiet, but quite perfect Christmas and New Year’s.
The lead up to successive Christmas periods over the last few years has been getting more and more hectic as we progress. This year, however, Jade and I managed to spend anywhere up to 15 hours per day on the phone to ensure that the fat bloke with the red pyjama and reindeer fixation had all his models to deliver on time.
Honestly, I wasn’t laughing or dancing with joy at that thought.
So aside from spending enough time on the phone to make us both start contemplating the possibility of having a receiver surgically implanted into our shoulders, Jade and I have been having a bit of a hibernation period.
Throughout this time, I have actually managed to get a bit of work done on the layout. Teddles decided to play a little joke on me, when I asked him to make some number plate decals for me, by supplying me with decals for rego labels as well.
Despite my initial misgivings, these proved rather easy to apply, and they do actually look really good and did not strain my already stretched sanity levels too much. So with a bit of work, the main street of Summiton is starting to take shape and come to life.
On behalf of Kieren and Anita Haskell, Rob and Coral Kissin as well as Jade, Keith, Addy and myself, we would like to thank you all for you continued support over the last year and look forward to the following year. Hopefully you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years.
All of our thoughts are also with the families affected by the current floods.
With any luck I shall be updating this little rant a bit more frequently…
Then again, we shall see how we go.
