Re: Car modeling... confessions

Sometimes, I just pull a kit off the shelf, put the body on the chassis, and see how it looks with my entire collection of wheels under it. Then, I put it away. Then, I get another one down and do it again. Three hours later, I have lost an odd number of wheels, and am on eBay looking for a kit perfect for that one set of wheels that hasn't fit anything yet...

I have too many kits and cannot stop buying and have a poor finishing record!

Re: Car modeling... confessions

I haven't finished a model since I was a kid (15+ years ago)....couple of years ago I bought some kids and tools, started working on a couple, joined here, then I've stalled out building my paint booth. I have all materials and most are cut out, it's just taking forever to assemble it.

Re: Car modeling... confessions

I should be packing my things for my upcoming move back to Ohio. Instead, I decided to start another kit that may not ever get finished.

I have to pack the contents of a 3-bedroom house by myself so what do I start with? Yes, my models; at least the ones that aren't being worked on.

Re: Car modeling... confessions

I always seem to buy at least two of the same kit when I originally tell myself "one is good enough".

Re: Car modeling... confessions

I buy a few 1:24 kits using the justification that (a) they're Porsches, and (b) they'll be useful as reference for future scratchbuilt projects...I've not actually built a 1:24 car kit to a finished standard in my life! I'm 40 next year...

Re: Car modeling... confessions

I use hot glue to attach large front and rear bumpers onto muscle cars.

When I need to touch something up I sometimes don't fully mix the paint I'm using and just dry brush using the residue from the top of the bottle.

My spray booth is made out of a cardboard box.

I take a whiff of Tamiya paint every time I open a bottle. I like the smell!!!

I use rattle can on my bodies instead of my airbrush

I raid my wife and daughters nail polish stash for new color ideas.
