No, not yet, but I've been tempted. I'm afraid I'll become a hermit if I try one. I built various wooden (balsa wood) and plastic aircraft and other models as a kid. The "skills" are still there, just not used for 30 yrs. My stuff is complex. It would take a lot of work!
I agree - your work is very complex. It would take a lot of work, but could be very rewarding. I'd love to see you give it a shot. *nudge, nudge*
I can completely sympathize with the worry about becoming a hermit. Not only can I lose myself in miniatures for hours at a time, but I'm also an aspiring writer and spend hours putting the imaginary people in my head onto paper. I was able to meet some old friends for coffee last weekend and laughed about how wonderful it was to see *real* people! I think the key is to keep a great sense of humor and set up coffee dates frequently (and then be a hermit in-between). *grins*
