I actually didn't buy any kits the last two years - a pact with my kids to cut down on the kits piling up, I would been fined if I bought anything!  So I might buck the trend here and buy one or two kits.  Stacey David's 32 and the Revell '62 Corvette are calling out to me.  I also might get some kits to donate parts to projects as well.


To get more done - I completed two this year and have done quite a bit on a conversion and detailed build I'm doing so have done better than the last few years.


I like the idea of regular visits of a medium length duration as suggested in this thread so that'd be a good resolution as well.


To use this forum more as well - its a good one!

that "finish a kit" is going to be too much of a challange so i am going for the "not going to START any more kits" as my resolution.

I definitely agree with Tom Geiger...  Spend some time each day, be it an hour or several hours, on the project at hand, and before you know it the project is completed.  I work on completing  at least a couple of assemblies or detailing tasks at each bench session and usually can leave the workbench each day with a positive feeling of accomplishment.

I understand that not everyone can spend time at their workbench every day due to work/family/life in general, but, I'm retired so I have the advantage of lots of "free time".

Indeed. Or four or five more.....!

To actually finish something.   In 2012, I bought roughly 65 kits (new + old). 

In 2012 I've bought more than 50 kits and have been able to finish maybe 3... School and work got in a way so hopefully next year I can make the most of my time off and actually build a few before buying/starting 15 more.

2. Use my airbrush so much that i can justify buying a nicer one.


3. Uhmmm. I forgot,    maybe    take out the trash in the morning?
