The Model Citizen: You Know You're Done Modeling For The Evening When…

Tom Geiger
July 1998

You Know You're Done Modeling For The Evening When...
You sink a number 80 drill bit straight through the distributor and straight through your thumb

You Know You're Done Modeling For The Evening When...
You zap two parts together permanently, only they're fingers

You Know You're Done Modeling For The Evening When...
Nothing you've built even remotely resembles the instruction sheet or the box art

You Know You're Done Modeling For The Evening When...
You receive a "Number 11 Love Bite"

You Know You're Done Modeling For The Evening When...
Your paint stand goes "Timber!" and drops a wet body directly into the crud in the bottom of your spray booth

You Know You're Done Modeling For The Evening When...
Your spray can runs dry half way through painting the last tiny accessory piece for your model

You Know You're Done Modeling For The Evening When...
You cut a perfect score line on your Evergreen sheet using an Exacto knife and a straight edge, only you've cut across three finger tips

You Know You're Done Modeling For The Evening When...
You sneeze while painting a pin stripe, leaving an interesting but totally inappropriate "Heartbeat" line on your model

You Know You're Done Modeling For The Evening When...
You reach across your workbench, dumping a full beer into your just finished interior tub

You Know You're Done Modeling For The Evening When...
The telephone rings and your favorite paint brush dries solid during your conversation
