Frustrations are good for building character, so it has been said...
Damn, I've got to have character coming out my ears by now!!! One plan just fell through at the last minute... should be interesting to see if I can conduct damage control on my entry.
I think I will only enter one contest per year from now on... this sucker has dominated my free time well beyond a reasonable level! I can't let real life suffer, even for a custom. I also don't want to get burned out on making customs... it should be a labor of love, not simply a labor.
Strange... on my side, when I'm begining a custom, I'm so much inside of it that I can't stopped. That's why they are finished fast (when I have all the parts). I don't have unfinished customs, they are too much precious to me for that. They are part of stories I made, so when I'm begining one, it will be finished. On the other hand, I can't do two customs at one time.
Am I abnormal to love that ? ... Let me think... after 24 years of Zoiding... YES I AM !
And this is why you are Lionel: Iron Darth French, and inspiration to zoid fans everywhere. But seriously, I know what you mean, my zoids obsession is just as old if not quite as continuous.... Hail Karak, conquerer of worlds!

It would probably be easier but right now there is some heavy stuff going on that is weighing on me. Some good, some bad, some really, really hard.
I am enjoying watching this custom come together, don't get me wrong! It's just that the deadline is so close and I have to fight my propensity to rush to the finish line. I want this one to be a respectable entry, and it is so far removed from anything else I've done that I'm taking great pains not to screw it up. This has, of course, caused me to screw up a few times.
Anywho, I started this and by golly I'ma gunna git 'er done!
