“Jeremy Moore, Regaining Lost Confidence and Is It Good or Bad to hop Scales/Subjects?”
Seattle Bound. Silly me, I thought I could get this quick review done before heading off to the Northwest Scale Modelers Show but someone had other ideas for this morning’s routine (and by that I mean chasing the string). Bags and models are packed so all that is left is to lead Sunkist to her food dish one last time.
Plastic Posse Podcast Ep63 (runtime 02:40:48) 2/14/2023.
Introductions, What’s on the Bench, Discussion #1, Moosaroo Update, Interview with Jeremy Moore, Listener Feedback, and Discussion #2 complete this episode.
Discussion #1. “Is it a good or bad thing to jump scale to scale/subject to subject?” My first reaction to this was “What, seriously? You have to ask this? Of course, it’s a good thing!” As I listened I could see that my thoughts and those of the podcasts hosts were in alignment. They articulated what I had only imagined in a nebulus way. From missing out on some wonderful subjects, avoiding burnout to becoming a better modeler through varied techniques. Yes, as JB said, you only have to look at his stash to see the eclectic collection spanning a variety of scales and subjects.
In the Interview with Jeremy Moore you can find out who he is, what he does and what’s his style. I do have to confess I did not know who Jeremy was but found the interview fascinating and even sprinkled with little modeling tips.
Listener Feedback. I really appreciated the discussion on passion as it relates to modeling and how Ethan eloquently put it, without passion models just become shelf queens. I might have paraphrase there a bit 😉
Discussion #2. “Regaining confidence when it’s lost” JB chips away at a list of little things, while many of the others recognize the effects of built up expectations (not winning at shows) to seeing others’ projects and chasing “likes” that make us feel inadequate. I think it was Ivan that summed it up with “Confidence … it takes a long time to build it, seconds to shatter!” Doug mentioned that probably the biggest threat to a modeler’s confidence is “real life” – sometime life happens. His advice: back off, take the focus off yourself and help another modeler.
There you have it, a quick and dirty review/opinion before my chariot arrives and we drive off into the sunset to the NWSM Show. Technically, we’ll be driving away from the sunrise this morning 😉
