Not as much time to build as I would like so I never have more than 2 going at any one time.

I have probably 6-7 in various stages of completion at any given time. If I run into an engineering problem on one, I'll put it down and work on another.


Yep, that's me too. Never seem to get any FINISHED, that's my problem!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: ;)

Well put, George :lol: I was just going thru some of my half built, half painted kits this morning.

I just got my modeling desk set up in my new place, and I'm already getting the urge.

There are so many I need to finish....... :P

Hmm..............I've just surprised myself by only counting six WIP models. There are a couple others where I've glued some a part or two together, but those models could be off in another direction in a second design-wise so they don't count much.

'49 Merc - Jolly Roger
F-Bomb inspired '79 Camaro
'53 Stude Panamericana racer
'49 Ford hot rod
Custom Batmobile
and my scratchbuild WW3 scout vehicle.

I used to have three or more at any given time. I soon found that nothing got finished and most would be back in the box to make way for something else. Now I force myself to do only one at a time, and just focuse on that one project.

I currently have about 6 going. Most are in the beginning stages. My post apoc kenworth is a major project. Extending the sleeper, frame, adding extra fuel tanks etc. I basically try to work on a different one every day. Helps me keep interest in them. Unless of course I get on a roll with one.

Right now, I have 6 cars, two semis and 7 1/72 scale aircraft, one 1/144 Saturn 5 rocket and one 1/350 USS Missouri out, on the benches and tables, in various stages of completion... I have 'Modelers ADD' and cannot concentrate on one at a time...

I find that if I just work on one build, I get bored with it, and then that leads to wanting to get it done faster, and that leads to a build that is not done right, or sloppy .

It's nothing for me to have 4, 5, or 10 going at once. I think all the projects sitting around in various stages of completion are nice to look at. The WIP's I worry about are the ones in the box under the bed.

I'm only counting this in my head so I may be off by 1 or 2, but at any given time I have about 15 in some sort of incompletion.

I Have several in progress at the moment, but I have had to put them all on hold due to falling and breaking my hip in march and then fracturing my thigh bone just as I was getting on my feet causing it to all have to be done over.

I was working on building a correct 69 Yenko 427 Nova SC (Lethal) for the Revell/ Gearz Contest starting with the COPO kit.
69 NOVA Street machine, using The totally wrong Revell NOVA SS YENKO.
Two 1930s Gow Job Roadsters Total Kit Bashes.
25 T Chopped to Coupe, Using the AMT Double kit, a lot of modifing, Kit Bashing, and after market parts. It was inspired by Bad News built by the Choppers Hot Rod Cub on TV. A Traditional Hotrod!

To get technical-it could be said that ALL of my model kits are ongoing projects.It's just that not all of them have gone past the "open the box and look at it" stage.
