Project Update: Wicked Wanda's by Bar Mills

The oldest project now is finished. It has taken me 4++ years to do it. For the most part it sat on a shelf collecting dust. It was very hard to re-motivate myself but it was something I had to do. The unfinished projects just kept accumulating taking up valuable shelf space. Not to mention all painted, purchased detail pieces and figures in little containers everywhere.
This is the first one of two or three projects I want to finish before building something new. The commissioned ones don't count. Ideally it would be nice to finish all of them but spending a year or so working on old stuff seems a little unrealistic. The ratio of 2:1 or 3:1 is something I can handle.
The problem with really old projects is that they reflect my ideas from 3 or 4 years ago. A lot has changed since then. I wouldn't construct diorama the same way now. Good thing including Wanda's I had only two projects in diorama construction phase. I am free to do the other ones new way. Only I have to keep in mind that once I start building diorama I need to make sure I finish it. Few years down the road thing may look differently.
