What's the best kit you NEVER built ???

So why don't I have it built yet ???? Who knows. but it got me thinking.
Anyone else have this situation where they have a beautiful kit like that but just haven't built it??

I've got several hundred!! Each one of them seemed like a really great idea at the time!
But seriously, it probably boils down to a couple: the current Revellogram 1/8 scale Big Deuce reissue and the Trumpeter American LaFrance Eagle pumper. Both are awesome kits, both deserve immediate attention. Neither has received it!
Neat question, Steve.

Actually, as much as I love most Ferraris, the Enzo and F50 both feature styling that doesn't do much for me. The Tamiya F50 is another awesome kit that I have and haven't yet felt inspired to build.

A couple that come to mind are the Big Deuce and the Entex '37 Packard roadster. The Entex kit probably isn't that great, but the subject is awesome!

Those are what I call "fondle kits"! I have a bunch of them, I wonder if I'll ever get round to building them. But I take them down and open them up on a regular basis, fondle the finely crafted parts, dry fit things, then sigh and put them back on the shelf.
"Fondle kits" - I love it! A perfect description of my modeling activity. I have about worn some kits out from too much "fondling"!!!
The MonoRev 1958 Corvette is my most fondled.

God put me on this Earth to accomplish a certain amount of things and right now I'm so far behind that I will never die.

Fujimi's Ferrari Enthusiast kits. Namely the 365 GTB4 Daytona. I have three of these kits. I think I am more intimidated than anything. I will however be working on one as my winter project. I have too!
I have one of those that I am taking a step further with an HRM 365 Competizioné Coupe conversion.....that should be fun.. :wink:
