"Bring Out Your Dead" Completion Build--ROUND 2 Is On!

Recommended Posts

There are so many great projects underway in the "Bring Out Your Dead" thread, quite a few of which wouldn't take a whole lot to get across the finish line. I have a couple in that category myself (and earlier this year, I actually finished up three that would have qualified for the Dead thread). Anyone want to join me in committing to dragging one or more of these projects off the Shelf of Doom and actually finishing it by the end of the year? It could be fun! B)

I'd join too but I have to bring my model room back from the dead first.

Haven't been able to work on anything since the flood back in April/May. 

Taking the opportunity to switch rooms to one I've been slowly building up specifically to work on models in. 

I hope to be able to work on models again soon.

148 views and only 3 of us are interested in doing this? :blink:

Okay, never mind...I guess....:unsure:

I am up for this. Been too long since I have even touched plastic.

Really need to get back to building again.

I would love to! I have tons of options, as well, but, I think I want to see the Monza across the finish line by the end of the year!

I thought this every time that thread popped up!  We have two months, so I should post an easy project in that thread now.  LOL

I have a few that I wanted to finish.  The SVO I have been hacking away on is nearly done, which will let me focus on something else.  Hopefully I can get something going with this build also.

I can probably join in the new year. Easy...considering that 17 of my current WIPs are "dead" right now!!  The oldest is about 18 or 19 years old.

So that's seven and me is eight. Cool! 

I just went back through the Bring Out Your Dead Thread and spotted a few more, all posted just in October, that should be good candidates for completion: 

*Gumball, you've got a BUNCH of likely prospects. Pick any one and gitter done! B)

"GeeBee, I'm not 100% sure what that black car is, but it looks easily finishable. B)

*Atmobil, your Land Rover and '29 Ford roadster both look like finishable projects. B)

*Foxer, that 2003 Infinity looks quite do-able. B)

*Ford F-100, that '67 LeMans deserves to be finished! B)

*ChrisBCritter, I'd LOVE to see that '61 Falcon done, it is so very way cool!B)B)

Fairlane1320, just pick ANYTHING--everything you posted is hella cool. Just pick one and drag it across the finish line!B)

I'll commit to getting either the '69 Camaro or the '69 Nova or the '66 Skylark finished. With luck, maybe two of them. 

 

Okay, we've got eight weeks more or less till the end of the year. Let's say "curbside" completions are okay. Your model does not have to have a fully detailed engine and chassis, but it should be up on its wheels and fit to set on a display shelf. But it SHOULD have all bodywork done and be painted and have a good finish--primer or "satin" is okay if that's going to be the model's FINAL finish. Glass and major trim (hood, grille, bumpers, lights, etc.) should be installed. The idea is to have the thing LOOK finished, even if it's maybe not fully detailed underneath. 

WE CAN DO THIS! WHO'S WITH ME???! B)B)B)B)

This one's been sitting for way too long in this state. I think this will be my entry.

I was downstairs looking over the prospects.  Right now I am down to a Model T centerdoor, a 80% done Duesenberg, a very toy-like Rambler or (and it would be a hail Mary) a 41 Lincoln coupe. I'll try to get some photos up soon.

Let's do it... I'll have to swing for the fences but I'll give it my best shot... This camaro is a Glue bomb I just scored and it is on the bench currently... but the blazer and a chopped 55 nomad are probably my goals by the end of the year.

Not sure if I posted this project on that thread, but it qualifies.  Time sheet shows start date April 1995.  Not sure if you can get the resin conversion anymore, but as you can see, I converted it to a Canopy Express.  I have it on my workbench now, and have made some progress recently.  Next major step is vacuum-forming the interior parts.  Will try some extreme weathering techniques.  So this will be my entry.

I have two that are near completion.  Just need BMF/chrome trim and decals, both of which I don't like to do.  They need a dusting off tho first.

I'd be down for this. This '37 needs to get under glass along with a few others.
