I saw the "Favorite Kit to Build More Than Once" topic but I wondered who here will build a kit only once, then never again?

Every kit. I haven't doubled up on any. As the saying goes, "So many kits, so little time." And I would add, "Never say never again."

Anything worth doing once is worth doing to excess. B)

Id really build anything but there are models i could build as many as I could get a hold of...there is always another way to be built from the last version done.

Generally I only build one of any given model. Once I've built one, my interest is off to other subjects. The only exceptions that I can think of offhand are the Monogram 1/8 Jaguar and the Big T (built 2 of each of those).

I build slow so I don't have many duplicates. But every time I finish something, I think I should build another with the 'lessons learned'.  My Heller Citroen is the poster child for that one!   :)

The only kits  I have built just one of , is the IMC Little Red Wagon ( aka Lindberg kit now ) and the MPC Wild Willie Borsch Altered. And I have no  intentions to do another one of either

 

I've only got one of the AMT 1962 Belair's done, but thats going to change soon

There are far too many models that I want to build that I will never have time for to consider doing one model twice.

I have multiples of several kits to build different versions. Some are new-in-box, some are built-ups. Sometimes I'll build a kit now that I built when I was younger, either to replace one that was destroyed or one that I still have on display to see how far I've progressed.

I'm always try to revisit a past built model. Most of the time, I give a good 3-4 months before building the same model. I always try to find other ways to do stuff. Plus, being new to the custom model genre, I always thing of the best details after the fact.

This one. It was so bad, and so far from a snapkit that I even threw the box away. I cant remember the name of it and dont give a fig. It fought me all the way. Check out the gap at the bottom of the windshield. UGH.

There are a few models I will never build again.

 

After building a Revell Ferrari Daytona (Miami Vice) I feel like never building another one. Same goes for Revell Shelby Cobra. For some reason I can't see myself ever building another one of those.
