I really, really like that T, Aaron. That's the very sort of treatment I've been considering for a similar build when I get to it. In fact I might have to snatch that photo and keep it my reference folder.

I have recently rekindled a stalled project, but it already has its own thread- so here goes:

Should get fairly interesting the next couple of days! I hope...

Finally some sucess on my Studebaker. I was having trouble with the bodywork on the stinger hood scoop spliced into the Stude hood ghosting through the primer. I really hate bodywork. My hat is off to anyone who does flawless work. A quick wetsand and then some Duplicolor Beige Pearl.

Well, I want to finish this one and looking at the pic, one would think that there's not much to do yet.................

What's the problem you ask?? The roof is showing the body-work that was done right down the center! A faux pas on my part as I didn't prep it quite right before painting. It's not super noticeable, but enough that it bothers me a great deal. The only solution for me would be to either take the front and rear glass out and paint/strip everything, or mask off the windows and sand everything down to bare plastic as much as possible, and prime/paint from there.

Also, my '64 Olds 442 is stalled due to another warped resin hood! Between the two, I'll probably finish that one first as I'm going to take a page from KennB and scratch a hood from sheet plastic. ;) Only thing missing may be the lettering, but hey!

Only someone who doesn't know you and your work Bill. Glad to have you along for the ride.

This thread should be able to go on forever - does anybody NOT have a stalled build?

Yep, I didn't bother with an end date. If this gets so big as to be an issue to Gregg or Harry, we'll work something out then. But so far responce has been luke-warm. I'll keep it going though.

Stalled builds, hmmm? I've got a few that fit into this category...

1936 Ford, Monogram 1:24 scale bashed together with the Boyd Smoothster. MCG LaSalle grille, RMCM DuVall windshield. I have the bodywork about done, but haven't started priming yet.

AMT '49 Ford coupe- Chop done (beautifully, if I do say so myself), side trim removed, and wheelwells radiused. Still trying to decide whether to do it shiny or suede. Still needs some filler and bodywork before primer.

AMT '51 Chevy coupe- Top chopped, rear fenders extended, Modelhaus Buick grille. Very rough at this point- probably a few months' worth of work to get it finished.

I'm probably going to pick up the '49 Ford for this CBP. I've been wanting to do something in a satin metallic and this might be the perfect build for that- I'll think I'll start playing around with this as soon as I'm done with my custom Avanti.

Shawn there is no start date and no end date. You can join anytime and I'll keep it running until Gregg says "enough".

I can scratch this one off my list - "Revell SSR post-apoc. desert runner".

My sixteen year old son wants to build a zombie apocalypse car and when I showed him the SSR he said "perfect!".
So now it's his problem. I'm kind of glad because I really wasn't that jazzed on the project anyway.

ONWARD!

Well since I've got quite the list myself, here goes nothing.

'71 Hemi 'Cuda resto mod
'64 Dodge 330 (replica of a friends drag car)
'71 Dodge Charger (stock)
'66 Chevelle wagon pro street
'70 1/2 Camaro G-machine?
'66 Nova pro street
Shelby Cobra 427 S/C
'70's-'80's Late model camaro dirt track car

I think that should do it. I don't want to get to far ahead of myself, AGAIN. lol

Well by its very nature you are dealing with projects that for one reason or another have not been progressing. I have been getting a little work done, hope to get some photos up later tonight or tommorrow.

Luna and Chuck, thanks I have made a little progress on the T and Lancia, so will have more to show.

I'll join in, haven't had a whole lot of time to build over the summer. Here's a few I have going right now. The Viper is the only one I've really messed with lately. Citadel Boltgun metal, Polyscale Reefer white stripes.

Oh, and these. The bagged kits are the old Indy hall of fame models, the Rutherford car just hit the floor and needs put back together. I believe there's a P-40 and a 109 in the stash I've started too. I'm mainly concentrating on the Viper and Cutlass right now.

Ok, I'll bite. I've got this Monogram '58 T-bird that's been painted and has been stalled and sitting now for way too long. It's time to get 'er on the bench and finish 'er up. This is the perfect build thread to make sure that happens.
