It turns out that due to my mum’s visit and an impending business trip to Hogtown next week, I only have four evenings left until the Railway Modellers’ Meet! There is definitely more than four days’ worth of work left in the roundhouse at my usual rate, and so, I need to get hyper-efficient.
I took a couple of minutes today to sketch out a plan for the first three days, leaving one day for the inevitable disaster. In project management, we call that contingency, and allowing for it in a modelling project feels awfully sophisticated to me. Indeed, mapping out a plan at all feels highly workmanlike.
It always feels like every project I undertake takes about a year. This roundhouse was started about May last year, with some months off to work on the drawings for 622. The turntable before it was also about a year long. Maybe if I made more project plans, I could bring these models out a little faster.
Naw, sounds like work!
