A Monogram 1/32 scale '34 Ford snapper I bought by mistake...though it might get built to accompany some 1/32 scale warbirds someday.

In my stash there's an AMT '69 Mustang that was in a series called ( I think) Wild Wheels( the same series that had the '40 Ford sedan delivery with the altered headlights). Cheesy looking wheels and 2 engines, neither of which looks any good. I must have gotten it cheap.

Lessee, I have a Monogram '58 T-Bird I have no interest in building. Also have a Revell '80s or '90s Pro Street T-Bird I have no interest in building (only bought it to use the chassis to make a '65 Mustang pro street that I also lost interest in).

I've got a revell mk2 vw golf in the kamei x1 boxing I will probably never build, but its the same as the tuner version revell usa released so I'll build that one instead. Its not really a lack of interest though

Tie: Revell Dodge Charger SRT-8 and Shelby Cobra 427 S/C won at club raffles. Good kits I'm sure, just not the stuff I build.

Twas the Monogram 1/12 scale '57 Chevy!

A friend gave it to me for a birthday present,  "Betcha can't build a big 'un!"  as if we were assembling puzzles or something.

I think I gave it away.

Were you looking to get rid of the '58? Thunderbirds of any year are my favorite........ ;)

Several '90s Monogram NASCARs.  My interests have moved on after building a ton of them, can't sell them, can't give them away.  Good for parts I guess.

I have a Revell 26 Ford T sedan delivery street rod "Lil John's" I can't seem to get the steam up to even open it. It's been in a closet probably since the 80's still in original wrap. I think I keep it because it's small block Ford powered instead of Chevy. Hate the Jag rear end, wish it was a regular sedan instead of delivery but yet I leave out hope for some inspiration one day. The older I get the less it interests me really but I did move it from the closet to next to my living room chair.. It's collecting dust there now.

To be honest with myself, probably at least 30-40% of the kits I have on the shelf I really have little interest in.  I am addicted to buying plastic, then after a few years of them sitting on the shelf wondering why in the world I spent good money on that kit.  Some I will probably use for trade fodder, others may be pirated for parts, and some will be sold at my estate auction.

For me it would probably be the '23 Model T delivery van that I won in a raffle last year, and a Monogram 1/12th scale Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing.

There are others that I picked up many, many years ago, but I rarely waste the money on a kit that I'm not interested in.

I would rather spend $150.00 on an old vintage kit that I am really excited about, versus a half dozen modern kits that I have only nominal interest in.

My sentiments exactly. While I was looking thru my stash this weekend, I was thinking...."When is the next show so I can sell some of these off?" I kid myself that I will build those 32 Fords and 57 Chevys, but I will win the lottery before that happens!
