It's summertime and I'm generally pretty busy with "life" these days, so there's not a whole lot going on for me at the model bench. So in the interest of participating on the board I thought I'd post a few pics of stalled projects I've accumulated. Some I haven't worked on in months, some not in years. Feel free to post some of your stalled projects so I don't feel too alone here! :D

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:
Posted Image

A Johan '60 Olds roof transplant (from the '60 Impala):
Posted Image

An AMT '67 Impala "quick build" from about 4 years ago:
Posted Image

A '69 GTX experiment using metallics for interior colours (not factory colours, though) from about 15 years ago:
Posted Image

A '57 Chev short track car "quick build" from about 3 years ago:
Posted Image

A '69 Chevelle short track car on a modified NASCAR chassis from about 3 years ago:
Posted Image

My '60 Fury Restoration Challenge (from the other board) car from a few years ago:
Posted Image

Panther Pink '70 Challenger ragtop:
Posted Image

A '69 Cougar body on a Model King (MPC) Super Stocker chassis:
Posted Image

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?? :D

First off let me appologize because I can't post pictures.(I have a real tough time with that both on this forum and a fiero forum I belong to.) But I will list some of the projects I've stalled.
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.
Later,
Mike

Okay, here are a couple of mine. First, an R&R '53 Buick convertible. I used a modified Monogram '53 Chevy chassis. Wheels and tires from the AMT '62 T-Bird kit. I can't remember for sure where the up-top came from. Maybe the Lindberg '53 Ford.

Posted Image

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.

Posted Image

I have a bunch more, but these are two I want to get back after sooner than later.

Stalled projects? Why, whatsoever do you mean? Who could start something and not finish it? I'm aghast and appalled at the mere thought.

Daniel, I don't know you that well, but I learned BIOP pretty quickly and also the T-bolt story.
YOU? Appalled??? LOL

Anyway, here is what I have stalled out on:
Revell Mustang
Posted Image
Fujimi Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VII Ralli Art Street Version
Posted Image
Fujimi Lamborghini Gallardo
Posted Image
AMT Toyota Supra F&F
Posted Image
Fujimi Porsche 917K
Posted Image
Fujimi Ferrari 550 Maranello
Posted Image

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.

I hesitated at first to post these, because they really seem to bug people. I just can't get a break around here to get things moving again.

1964 GTO the license plate will read "HYNMYTY".

Posted Image

And yeah...it's got a hemi.

Posted Image

A little Camaro Weekend Warrior Action.

Posted Image

Some of the parts...gawd, I hope I can still find them.

Posted Image

Bantam Blast

Posted Image

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!

We all have 'em.

First up, Mustang Ghia conversion. Hasn't gone anywhere since the photo. The AMX has.
Posted Image

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.
Posted Image

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.
Posted Image
Posted Image

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.

Wow! Theres some neat stuff there that I would love to get my hands on....
:D
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.
