I have a different problem: I get bored on a build, so I move on to another. I then decide for the current build that I want a part from an unfinished build, so I take it. Then, when I go to do one of the unfinished builds, I have to figure out how to replace the part I took, which may mean taking from yet another unfinished build (or from an old build on my shelf).  :blink:

I have been trying to get a Revell 2010 Camaro finished for the last three months or so, had to replace once, stripped the paint once on the replacement body, and then just got it repainted, to have ruined the paint job again :lol: ,  so two cans of Tamiya paint, and one emplacement body and I am pretty much back to where I started from

AMT '57 Chrysler 300C, 12 years on the bench as of now. Four different homes, two states, still partially finished. An all time record for me.

Hey Draggon and Madman, those builds are killer. Let's see those babies done !!!! Or at least progress !!!

Thx Bill. I got some of the Testors Acrylic pearl Green in a bit back, so that 32 might get done! I really hate the lime green engine block and suspension, but its too late now.

When AMT first released the '55 Chevy I was in California when I first saw it on a shelf and bought three. I was so excited bringing them home to Indiana on the plane, I must have been thinking they would never have them here. What year was that, 1989? I wanted to build one like my 1:1 black Del Ray, making all the modifications. Mods made, it still sits on the bench unfinished long after my 1:1 is gone. "Some day", I keep thinking. In the mean time I have lost the windows and will have to open number two. So yeah, I know what it's like. http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x440/rmvw/DSC04177.jpgth_DSC04178.jpgth_DSC04177.jpg
