Post your stalled projects
Posted 19 July 2006 - 06:53 AM
I've posted these before on other boards, so for those who've seen them before, my apologies (hopefully soon I'll be able to post some actual progress pics). Here are a few:
'60 Chev Bel Air 2-door sedan conversion using a Tom Coolidge roof:
A Johan '60 Olds roof transplant (from the '60 Impala):
An AMT '67 Impala "quick build" from about 4 years ago:
A '69 GTX experiment using metallics for interior colours (not factory colours, though) from about 15 years ago:
A '57 Chev short track car "quick build" from about 3 years ago:
A '69 Chevelle short track car on a modified NASCAR chassis from about 3 years ago:
My '60 Fury Restoration Challenge (from the other board) car from a few years ago:
Panther Pink '70 Challenger ragtop:
A '69 Cougar body on a Model King (MPC) Super Stocker chassis:
There are others... but that's enough for now! :oops: :roll:
Anybody else out there as bad as I am for starting something but not finishing it??

AMT Batmobile-I started trying to make the side intakes more realistic.
MPC Ghostrider-I started puttying the widebody kit after I glued it in place
Monogram Bugatti EB-110-I'ts painted...but thats about it
Revell pro-street Chevelle- I wanted to paint it like the first release of it I had which was apple green but it's too humid( I live in the north east! I'm gonna stop there because if I think too much about it I'll remember some more and I'll be even more behind.

Next is a Revell '34 Ford coupe in 1/16 scale. I'm using a lot of parts from the Minicraft A-V8. I cast the rear wheels and slicks from resin.
I have a bunch more, but these are two I want to get back after sooner than later.

YOU? Appalled??? LOL
Anyway, here is what I have stalled out on:
Fujimi Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VII Ralli Art Street Version
Fujimi Lamborghini Gallardo
AMT Toyota Supra F&F
Fujimi Porsche 917K
Fujimi Ferrari 550 Maranello
I'm slowly whittling away on the GTO. Had to gather up some parts to make my dipstick tube and handle. Then again, the heat takes a lot out of me too.

Stalled projects? Why, whatsoever do you mean? Who could start something and not finish it? I'm aghast and appalled at the mere thought.
Dan, Dan, Dan. I wasn't even thinking about those T-bolts. But now that you mention it....

1964 GTO the license plate will read "HYNMYTY".
And yeah...it's got a hemi.
A little Camaro Weekend Warrior Action.
Some of the parts...gawd, I hope I can still find them.
There are more...but I can't bring myself to go on. I will not even post the TBolt until I make some more progress!

First up, Mustang Ghia conversion. Hasn't gone anywhere since the photo. The AMX has.
AMX w/first coats of Big Bad Blue paint. It was a disaster at first, paint splattered badly in my first attempt at Testors new lacquers. A new nozzle solved the problem. Then it warped in my dehydrator as the resin is a bit soft and it was put in crooked :roll: 3 hours of hot water dewarping... :oops: Will get SG black "shadow mask", need to figure how to make the silver separation stripe. And get better results w/Alclad, or Spaz Stix, or Mirrachrome or Killer Chrome :roll: Hopefully finished for our pony car theme in November.
Porsche Carrera GT coupe. Started w/an idea w/a friend, he started and then finished his racer first (had it at NNL East past 2 years), hope to finish this street version before November. As conversions go, this one's almost too easy w/Revell roof. Parts fit like magic.
Nissan March, John Cooper Works Mini Cooper S. Got bored w/the March, and waited for some better rims for Cooper S. Got the rims from the RSX kit, so it may get done soon.

Actually, I have SO Many "Stalled" projects that it would end up taking me the better part of a day to photograph and post them all. I like to think of them not so much as "stalled", but simply pushed back to make way for a more intresting project.
You can think of the stalled project as a playground for learning....., or some such justification...
Ok, I done.

Really like how you think dude, thanks!
Mad Slammmer..... I love the Bus project! I have one started too that I really need to finish and you may have guilted me into warming that one up again. However, please post your full name in the signature box in your profile section so we all can know who built such cool stuff. Tanks!!
