you have to build, collecting kits if fun, but building is waaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy better fun!!! Open a kit and no matter how it turns out build it, as you go along skills get better and so do the builds..... I only average 1 maybe 2 builds finished a year but try to do more for time reasons.
Cool, out of the 13 kits I've bought this year I have made around 11 or 12 complete cars using parts mostly. to date I have built:
32 Ford Coupe
32 Ford rat Rod (was the coupe) in collection
36 Ford Coupe
36 Ford Rat Rod (again, was the coupe above) in collection
32 Ford Rat Rod in collection
70 Mustang in collection
80 Bronco in collection
53 Chev Corvette in collection
49 Ford in collection
there's probably more there but i can't remember lol!
49 Mercury Utility Custom
69 General Lee
Ford F250 Super Duty Aussie Ute (now in bits in the parts box

Otherwise, I always try to do an hour or two a week, even if it's just to play with parts and study instructions.

...Hmmm. I spend about 5-15 hours on the bench every week. As was said previously - winter months are the prime time.
I may spend more time at the bench when I get a new tool or hobby gizmo. I've been spending too much time lately trying out different paints and things with my new compressor, paint booth and getting re-aquainted with my air brush.
There are so many things that pull us away from the bench. Children, work, family functions, enriching spousel relationships, car shows, other events, etc. All of these reasons are valid and very important. Model building helps us balance our lives - we cannot let our activities turn into obsession and throw our lives out of balance.
OK that was just too deep - just find your own balance.
