An example of how I end up getting sidetracked rather than actually building models LOL
I like to build all kinds of cars but tend to gravitate most toward 50s-70s American iron and even more to some of the less popular early 70s versions I remember on the road as a young kid. Anyways- I decided I should to do a '71-'73 Mustang as there was none in my current stash and the only one I had previously was the minimalistic Matchbox issue AMT racer years ago
Further thinking left me undecided as to what version to build- '71 429, Boss 351, '73 Mach I, '72 just because it seems to get "skipped"?
Then color schemes- red with stripe delete like James Bond drove, dark yellow like the original Eleanor, blue with silver stripes, I always liked white for the Boss 351, black with silver stripes was sharp, dark green would be cool.........
Then what kit? I remember from discussions years ago that the recent reissues were really only good for building a stock '73 and that the original AMT and MPC annuals each had their quirks, weren't the greatest but neither was greatly superior to the other
Went online, did some shopping and purchased the following at what I thought were fair prices- '71 MPC annual brush painted and built but very restorable and complete plus the unused parts, decal sheet and original box, '71 MPC annual new in the box and almost complete, '72 MPC annual factory sealed, '73 buildup with the original box but huge slicks and butchered rear wheelwells, MPC stock body from a "funny car" kit (when MPC provided a stock wheelbase body and a generic chassis for all their FC kits) with some cool blue tinted glass, a complete and restorable built MPC '73 and a Boss 351 reissue kit
So instead of simply getting a building a model I made it more complicated than necessary and ended up with another half dozen projects on the "to-do" list
