The Motor Pool project is kind of a big one, I'd wager. Bigger than, say, a Hoatd of 20 assorted flat standees.
Hi! I'm Harry, formerly "Coyotepunc" here on the forum. I am a hobby addict; I prefer papercraft scenery to use alongside my 28mm metal and plastic miniatures, and am not afraid to mix and match my hobby media. I game sci-fi, fantasy, and historical (including Ancients, Dark Ages, Renaissance, and World War II Manchukuo.)

True, but I like building models and seeing how different designers do things. I'm not building all of them. I did two of the 4X4's, one of the 6X6's, the initially submitted APC (two if you count the one that was too small), the Police Tactical, and I've started on the MUT.
It really helped having folks format their entries before submitting, but I still have to have at least one of each for the promo photos.
I'm starting to have a little sympathy for mproteau (Paper Realms) when he was doing everything including cutfiles, which I don't do.
But those little projects get me thinking differently on how to handle things, which helps me design better. If I hadn't done Herbie, I'd have never found the method used on the EZ Build Beetle. If I hadn't found it, I don't think I'd have been able to do the Kurogane. If I hadn't done the Stupid Truck, I don't think I'd have come up with a way to vary the back ends, which will come in handy on the M-ATV, which is going to be constructed as a combination of the EZ Builds and the Stupids.
But these things all take time
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

I've got so many projects I want to get done, and crafting random models isn't what floats my boat. I mean, some models do, but most don't. So, when I was putting all the hoards together, many of the models were assembled simply so I could take a photo before recycling the paper. :-P
I wish I had hard numbers for how many people actually use cutfiles so I could complain about the things that get in the way of making cutfiles easier. If few people actually use cutfiles, then putting any burden on model creators isn't terribly defensible.
Re hard numbers: On my Patreon 50% have chosen the reward level with cut-files. I was actually surprised that there are so many. But it makes creating the cut-files easier for me now I thought I was just making them for oldschooldm

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

Vermin King: Well, my day has been spent on work and taxes. Am I the last forum member to do their 2019 taxes?

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download
