How many WIP's can one have ongoing at any time?

Recommended Posts

I used to have three or more at any given time. I soon found that nothing got finished and most would be back in the box to make way for something else. Now I force myself to do only one at a time, and just focuse on that one project.

I currently have about 6 going. Most are in the beginning stages. My post apoc kenworth is a major project. Extending the sleeper, frame, adding extra fuel tanks etc. I basically try to work on a different one every day. Helps me keep interest in them. Unless of course I get on a roll with one.

Right now, I have 6 cars, two semis and 7 1/72 scale aircraft, one 1/144 Saturn 5 rocket and one 1/350 USS Missouri out, on the benches and tables, in various stages of completion... I have 'Modelers ADD' and cannot concentrate on one at a time...

I have four right now two 70's Boss Mustangs, the Revell 1/12 Shelby, interior work on a 50' Ford Pickup. Like a few other have said I like to work on one while the others dry or cure at which ever stage im at with them.

I find that if I just work on one build, I get bored with it, and then that leads to wanting to get it done faster, and that leads to a build that is not done right, or sloppy .

It's nothing for me to have 4, 5, or 10 going at once. I think all the projects sitting around in various stages of completion are nice to look at. The WIP's I worry about are the ones in the box under the bed.

I'm only counting this in my head so I may be off by 1 or 2, but at any given time I have about 15 in some sort of incompletion.

I Have several in progress at the moment, but I have had to put them all on hold due to falling and breaking my hip in march and then fracturing my thigh bone just as I was getting on my feet causing it to all have to be done over.

I was working on building a correct 69 Yenko 427 Nova SC (Lethal) for the Revell/ Gearz Contest starting with the COPO kit.

69 NOVA Street machine, using The totally wrong Revell NOVA SS YENKO.

Two 1930s Gow Job Roadsters Total Kit Bashes.

25 T Chopped to Coupe, Using the AMT Double kit, a lot of modifing, Kit Bashing, and after market parts. It was inspired by Bad News built by the Choppers Hot Rod Cub on TV. A Traditional Hotrod!

To get technical-it could be said that ALL of my model kits are ongoing projects.It's just that not all of them have gone past the "open the box and look at it" stage.
