I think my most notable positive during this experiment and experience was the time perimeter. By that I mean, most hobbyist’s don’t work under a time perimeter. Most work under a budgetary confinement, but not one defined by the calendar. This was good for me, as it pushed me with a deadline. I normally work with the conveyer belt approach. Build everything, prime everything, base coat everything and so forth and so on. I started that way but somewhere about week three, I lost my way.
In the end it turned out well, I got everything done and now just to get them into some combat. My advise coming out of this experience for me is to build a time table for your project and stick to it as closely as possible.
