MIKE ASHEY'S
SCALE MODELING AXIOMS

NO SCALE MODEL IS ONE HUNDRED PERCENT  ACCURATE SO DON’T FALL VICTIM TO THE ACCURACY TRAP.

NO SCALE MODEL IS PERFECT SO DON’T FALL VICTIM TO THE IMPERFECTION TRAP.

SCALE MODELING IS WHAT EVER YOU WANT IT TO BE SO DON’T FALL VICTIM TO THE ACCURACY HOUNDS, PERFECTIONISTS OR THE CRITICS.

SCALE MODELING IS A HOBBY NOT A COMPETITIVE SPORT.

IMPATIENCE AND FRUSTRATION ALWAYS LEADS TO DISASTER AND REGRET.

A LITTLE BIT OF PLANNING GOES A LONG WAY.

REVIEW THE KITS INSTRUCTIONS, STUDY THE PARTS, TAPE THE MODEL TOGETHER & MAKE NOTES ON THE INSTRUCTION SHEET.

MOST IMPORTANTLY --- JUST HAVE FUN!
