Repetition of work, eg window and stanchions (more precisely threading the wire particularly around corners.)  {:-{

If you really want to see what a team can do, go to the Pendon model Railway web site.   Or better still, go and see it in real life.   Cabbages as you've never seen them before.  O0

I have been thinking a lot about this topic (and now I have a headache, I don't usually think much at all :-) ) and I can honestly say I don't actually "hate" any part of boat modelling. I really enjoy planking (not the kind that's been prevalent on the TV news recently), filling and rubbing down is very therapeutic, and I find painting to be extremely satisfying.

I do, however, intensely dislike having to re-do a job as a result of stupidly making a mistake :embarrassed: - and that's happened to me more than once  >>:-(

Sorting accumulated tools and other odds 'n ends lying around the workbench and returning them whence they came coz I failed to put 'em back as and when I used them.  >:-o

Hi All

eventually this will be a pleasure - but now as a newbie it's frustrating. Picking a motor, esc, batteries for refurbishment when you have no idea what the jargon means and what is suitable vs overkill for what you have. Fortunately some kind chappies here have been suggesting items to me. In time I'll love making informed decisions ........ but for now it's a pain to not know.

Regards Norseman

That's what you have children/grandchildren for!  :P

I have that problem as well.... Tho isn't annoying when you spends ten mins on your hands and knees looking for a part and the other half says "what are you looking for?" so you show a picture of the part.  Thenthey say "Oh you mean this?" bend down and pick up said part  <*< >>:-(
