Looking back on 2014

It seems, the older I get, the faster the years fly by. Looking back, this year passed in just a moment. This was a year with quite some ups and downs. It’s not like anything really serious has happened, so rest assured. I had various plans, but couldn’t accomplish everything. At some points I was just totally busy with other stuff like work or being a voluntary firefighter. At other periods my other hobby (videogames) took a lot of time.

Accomplishments:

  • I bought and built quite a lot sets this year. Among these, many of the major Technic sets and some bigger System sets.
  • I built Sheepo’s Mustang.
  • I built Crowkillers Phantasm Twin Turbo.
  • Built some other smaller MOCs, like the Tumbler above made by ZBLJ.
  • Got several bulk supplies in smaller parts for some ideas I have.

Not accomplished:

  • Clear my to-build box.
  • Finish my C-model for 42009.
  • Post-process the video footage I recorded.
  • Find a good video processing software and learn how to use it.
  • Write reviews for the sets and MOCs I built.
  • Expand my building and storage space for better lighting and perhaps some backdrops.

Plans for next year:

  • Complete at least some of the reviews and videos.
  • Clearing the to-build box.
  • Start the long planned system MOC.
  • Build some MOCs from other people. The first one will be the 42009 C-model by MrTekneex.
  • Probably accomplish my own idea for a 42009 C-model with the above as base.
  • Expand my building and storage space for better lighting and perhaps some backdrops.

42030 and me

I wanted to go into a little more detail, but I guess that is not very interesting. So I leave it at that. All in all, it was still a good year. I got some great sets which really suprised me or where just very good value. But also I am a little disappointed about the things I did not accomplish.

Now, a new year is coming. I wish you, my readers and followers, all the best for the next year, a lot of new sets and bricks and of course lots of time for your favorite hobby. I sure have some plans and hope to pull through this year.

Until then, have a good time, a happy new year and a big THANK YOU for reading my blog and following me on Facebook.
