Not that hard, only the '57 Ford is on the top of my list and right now I'm tryin' to "thin out the herd" as I have been known  to buy kits a LOT faster than I build 'em.

What you got in the heard there Nick?????.....LOL....

Like many answers I read...build more, finish something, buy less. Well, I'll wait till after Sunday for the last one. Big once a year sale...open kits, started kits, glue and paint bombs, parts. Then I'll slow down on the buying part.

I resolve to get this ECTO 1A that I am converting into a hearse done...FINALLY.  The rear corner windows haven't been measure twice, cut once.  They have been fill with sheet plastic once, putty and sand 10 times to get it right. HAHA


Otherwise, I am hoping to get started on a project that makes it on here as my first under Pickups On the Workbench.  I just have a real problem with the motivation to take a lot of pictures because I don't really have anywhere inside to make a photobooth.

I resolve to spend more time working on models!  I've gotten more done in this past quarter than in the previous few years. All because I resolved to spend an hour or two a day in the model room. I've found that spending a little time each day moves things along and does wonders for my psyche too!

Well said, Tom - I've long been an advocate of that approach. I think it's sometimes too easy to take an "all or nothing" attitude, which becomes counter-productive. I've found that it also helps me to have a specific plan or at least a good idea of exactly what I'm going to work on in that hour or two.

finish a model before starting two more

This says it all for me.

I have about 15 unfinished builds around and packed up.

I'm starting to repair some that was one my car hauler when it hit the floor.

I would like to get them back together then start on my unfinished builds.

Definitely build more and buy less.  I've bought several glue bombs recently that I've had good luck with, but I've got so much to work on I don't know where to start.

I might get one or two done before the end of the year.


Otherwise, definitely get more built next year.

To spend more time sitting at the model bench and less time sitting at the computer desk. These model newsgroups are way too addictive.

1)To finish more than the one model I finished this year.

2)To increase my model building skills.You'd think after building off and on for more than 50 years I'd have caught on to more but it hasn't happened yet.Slow learner I guess.

3)To re-organize the model cave.It needs a paint rack change and some shelving moved around (to facilitate storage for more kits!).

4) To have my wish to see NNL East fulfilled.Our club is talking about a group trip there.I hope we can make it happen.
