Wow! :shock: There's some great stuff there that's begging to be completed!

Thanks to everybody for posting their incompleted projects... now I don't have to feel so guilty from having unfinished stuff sitting in boxes while I contemplate starting new projects! 8)

I've been thinking about doing that same kitbash for a loooong time. How has it gone so far? Any caveats or tips?

Hey Mad Slammer. I saw a Mystery Stretch like that at a show last year. Had a working alarm and disco lights inside. I will try to find a pic of it.

I would post in this thread...but then the board would explode. I have about 150 stalled projects. More then half are NASCARs....No so much stalled though as just moving on to another project....

OK, I guess I will post some of the ones I think the board will find the most interesting.

This one is probably the most interesting. It started out as one of Revell/Monogram's awesome 48 Ford Woodys, and then it met Mr. Razor Saw. The plan is to shoehorn an AMT NASCAR engine into it. I also want to replace the wood panels with real wood. I have not touched it for over a year.

This 64 Impala was on track to be my best model ever. Then, while clearcoating it, I dropped it in the snow, ruining it. Acid Snow (gotta love New York :roll: ) and Tamiya clear don't mix. So it's pretty dead. Then I bought a MCW 64 Biscayne, found out I needed to supply the hood and taillight panel. Didn't have one, so it sat, and the Biscayne got crushed in my basement. D'oh. It's almost a comedy of errors, if it was funny.

This one came to a grinding halt when I discovered, either by shoddy kit making, or shoddy building (probably the latter) I needed to section the dashboard to fit.

Project Gold Rush came to a halt when it got to the point where I wanted to go MC Hammer on it.
Not a great picture, but, it's good enough. I did prime it (twice) but neither time worked. I HATE primer.

My 40 Ford Sedan Delivery has been stalled since 2001. It was my first successfull door opening. I stupidly brush painted it black, and that's pretty much what killed it. I also bought some hinges from MicroMark but lost them which kind of hurt the project. I found them though, in the bottom of one of my parts boxes, last month! So I may get back too it. The door will be reverse hinged, a Suicide door.

Looks great. Section that dash and get to it!!

Well, here it is- a project stalled for nearly 20 years! A Renwal 1966 Duesenberg revival with everything opening, a real (Monogram) Duesenberg engine, flip up rear cowl, windshields from the IMC 46 Ford, and way too many parts gathered together to ever make a decision about! I won't post a pic, but enjoy what you find at the end of the link! :D

Wow I don't feel so bad some of you have as many "in progress" projects as I do. I probably have 20 or so "car" models in various states of completion and another 20 or so military models. I have the attention span of a gerbil when it comes to models.

Here are a few of the fire apparatus builds I have going, I probably have tripled this since I took the photo and none of these are done although I did recently get going again on the 55 chevy and with any luck I will get it done soon.

You know Chris, out of the 125+ NASCARs I have started, that one is the one I get the most "Finish it" posts for?? And it's one of my worst works, too! I will, someday, when I am brave enough to tackle sectioning the dash. I've never sectioned anything before...

Let me tell you something Billy. It really jogged my memory as a kid, sitting down with my Dad (he died in 83) and watching races with that car running around the track.
The paint scheme of all things is what did it. You jogged a good memory my friend, a good one. Thanks.
And, Finish it!
Chris

This model is more than... I thought... I can handle. Just alone the body has 100+ hours into it. I mean that just in the roof area. I applied body filler and ran it too hot and melted the roof. (Not once but twice).. As for the rest it should be a piece of cake.... This was started over 2 years ago and last touch by hands approx: 3 months ago...
