  • Am I the only one with 23 projects on hold?

    Am I the only one out there who starts a kit/diorama and then for whatever reason, puts it on hold and startys the next? I do have ADHD but this is ridiculous.
    Nebelwerfer I completed some 8 years ago in the hopes of completing a small dio. depicting Wiking Div. personnel loading it in preparation for firing (Figures aren't finished).

    Prinz Eugen Div. S-35: Started about 6 years ago, this is as far as I got.

    Gun detail for SdKfz.232 - all scratchbuilt. Started this one in 1983! Vehicle is mostly done, crew just need paint....I'll finish it someday. [url]

    I'm afraid that one day I'll get a wild hair and finish all that I've started.....I'll have to build an addition to house it all.

    They all look good. Too many projects, kind of:

    -finish Samauri figure as a surprise gift to friend
    -finish truck body for friend
    -finish recently started Panther for group build
    -finish field kitchen
    -finish 88
    -repair Sdkfz 251/7C, it didn't travel well.

    -finish rock landscaping
    -buy and install range hood
    -install 3 transition strips
    -finish, to wife's approval, paint on firplace overlay
    -install outdoor lights
    -install bead board in kitchen
    -repair drywall in garage
    -install door trim in bedroom
    -install trim in family room
    -buy and install nose moulding in family room
    I'd better stop there, I getting depressed...

          Jeez, and I thought I was slack for having two kits in the 'later' cupboard. I have had a few kits on hold in the past...one for twelve years. I finished it recently. Sometimes for me, 'on hold' means 'never', but other times, I intend to get back to it. I guess it depends on a few things. I have Dragon's P-61 on hold since 1996. I doubt I'll finish it. It's 1/72 and a fairly lousy kit. If I'm going to build a lousy P-61, it might as well be Monogram's 1/48 one.
          I have a very small unbuilt stash...maybe six or seven kits. (I hear you laughing ). My rule now is that I must finish three before I can buy a new one. A couple of my 'on hold' projects will do to make up the three. One and a half to go...

              I can top that.

              The number of kits I curently have sitting in the closet that I'm chomping at the bite to start now number 23, including that monster Leopold.

              But before I can even open a box I have to:

              Finnish the drywall in three more rooms.
              Primer, paint and cut trim for 9 rooms.
              Wire up the media room.
              Put the final touches on the master bedroom and master bath bath.
              Install a new sink and range hood in the kitchen.
              Tile the indoor fish pond.
              Reassemble the wet bar.
              Finish the downstairs gym.
              (all of the above by Christmas)
              Remodel the guest bathroom.
              Remodel a guest room.
              (These in time for Biscuits visit in the spring.)
              Haul a few ton of stone to where I need to build another stone wall.
              (This before first deep snow)
              And finish a dumbwaiter from the garage to the upstairs pantry.
              (OK, that one is whenever I can get to it.)

              Gonna be a while before I get to do any kits.

                I knew you'd be by here soon . I should send you pics of the fireplace, it turned out pretty good.

                  Go for it! You went with the stucco right? Like to see how it turned out? By mid-week I should have master bed and bath done and I'll turn you on to those.

                    I did an overlay with Rapidset Mortar. It worked pretty good.

                      Rapidset for a whole fireplace. You must have worked fast!

                        Yeah, the first batch was interesting . I mixed two bags and four bags of the extender. When they say it starts to set in 15 mins., they mean it. After that I only mixed up one bag at a time. I didn't cure it long enough so I have some small cracks but nothing too major. The wife has the pics so I'll get them from her. If I do another overlay I'll still use Rapidset, it's some pretty good stuff.

                          I think its pretty safe to say that most married men have a good sized list of things to be done and projects to be finished.

                            Razor you crack me up....... I have about 3 times that amout to do and most of it aint for me......I have projects started back in the 70's that I aint finished yet...but "ONE DAY....." I have about 5 dioramas that "ONE DAY......" I have 6 or 7 models for others that "ONE DAY......" I have about 25 1/72 kits...started...in various stages....that "ONE DAY...."

                            Truthfully, I think this is a trait of modellers around the world. Not to mention our insane obsession with hoarding kits, supplies, diorama extras. etc....
