All,
Aside from having wanted to try out the poll function, this question may be a nice change of pace. We all know we come to this forum because we like this hobby of ours, but what is your least favorite part? For me it's removing flash before painting, I absolutely hate it!! :boink: :cussing: :angry3:

So what is it that you don't like??

I'm going to have to go with Figures not Available, to be closely followed by Not Enough Time.

Another poll, I'm in! :-D For me it's the time factor followed by figures that I can't get and then flash. And how to make room for all the figures that I actually buy! :-D

For me it has to be lack of time. Which I suppose isn't the hobby's fault but everyday life encroaching into what we would like to be doing instead. I have a plan though. The next Euro Millions are mine. jejejeje.

I voted lack of time. Besides that it's modelling horse tack for me. Sometimes it's researching a figure and finding nothing, although generally I love doing research.

Removing flash, or generally cleaning the figs.

The figs that I want do not exist is also annoying, but that just makes me want to try sculpting some day :mrgreen:

Not enough time for me, and a good (?) second one is "figures I want but can't get my hands on".

I voted for "removing flash". I hate it, to make useless, timewasting work with a hot needle or a modelling knive. Because of this I am a big friend of Italeri-Sets. Absolute no flash!!!

Not enough time.. wish I didn't hang around here as much. :roll: Also the lack of cool poses in sets: there are always to few of the cool poses in a box, and way to much of the non-cool ones. :?

Painting horses (especially white) isn't one of my favorite things either, though I'm always very pleased with the finished result. :thumbup:

For me its definately removing flash/mould lines. I really really hate this. Especially with the softer plastics. I must admid that i have ocassionally cut of an arm or a leg (from the figure that is), so it has cost me some figures and it costs a lot of time wich keeps me away from painting. So that is my absolute nr. 1.

I voted not enough money. Followed by figures I want don't exist. If I had the the money I'd buy every set in the hobby store. :love1: Well, almost. :roll:

I second Benno's horses and not enough cool poses. (one of the reasons I'm getting into metal for ww2)
also the time factor of course.

Cheers,

Christiaan

The same for me. Could it be the age? 44? Nah, what does the other 44 think?
