I get an idea and pull a body out , paint it. then get another idea and the whole process repeats .
Thats why I have nearly a dozen bodies painted sitting in cases.
my resolution this year is finish what I have already started.( including projects that have been sitting in the wings for over 10 years ) And at my current pace I shouldn't start another kit for about 2 years
I'm the exact exact opposite. I hate doing the bodies, so I have completed engines and chassis and wheels with no bodies to put over them. The bodies - the hate of chrome foil and getting perfect gloss finishes is why I build mostly tanks and planes.
