When it comes to building models, I really hate the painting part. I can think of few other ways to slowly drive yourself insane. It’s the end result that drives me to do it – the work of art that emerges, if you do things right. If not, well, there’s always insanity.

Yellowstone is basically a giant volcanic crater (caldera) from a huge eruption believed to have taken place around 600,000 years ago. It may be due for another.
