Big things with little cars
Illustration for article titled Nerdstang: part 5

Nerdstang is very much a tease. every time I look at it I see failure, and it pisses me off. My eagerness to create an homage to one of my favorite shows using my favorite car was nearly destroyed when I kept making mistake after mistake. Glue in unwanted areas causing paint to rub oddly, glue on the windshield, and too much glue under the hood and now it won’t open...


Is this it, am I giving up ? Hell no. I’m not letting a piece of plastic ruin my passion. I will finish this build and I will redo it again at some point with lesson learned.

The car with each mistake is turning more and more into the character it’s based on. Damaged and broken to the point of disrepair and visible scars.

Every bursted bubble has a glory! Each abysmal failure makes a point! Every glowing path that goes astray, shows you how to find a better way. So every time you stumble never grumble. Next time you’ll bumble even less! For up from the ashes,up from the ashes, grow the roses of success!
