WIP793_zpsvxcxlctj.jpg

 

plus an HPH DH Hornet that got as far as some of a cockpit and one merlin engine, and a AIMS / Revell Ju188 that just got a bit butchered and a few cockpit bits.. - both will never see the light of day again

 

shame on me...:angry2:

I have 4

 

My fist ever 1/32 buil a hasegawa f-16. The verlinden kit for the gun ammo box teally kille the mojo. I did manage to fit it in but the build stopped once i realized the canopy dosent close over the verlinden cockpit. 

 

My other is a hasegawa p-51 that i was building mostly as a first attempt to rescribe an entire model. I pause at the painting stage because i lost a mlg door. I did find it back 8 months later but never got around to finish painting.

 

I have a classic airframe 1/48 a-4 two seater painted as a blue angles. This one got packed when i moved. When i wanted to start her up again i ran into an issue. There is a ton of dust stuck on the clear coat. But i cant remember what clear coat i applied, humbrol, future. So i dont dare to clean it with alcohol since the decals are on and there is no replacing them if i screw them up.

 

The last is the revell car carrier trailer. I got it when they reissued the box since ive been wanting this for ever. But man is this got a dog...... 

 

Thats it

I have three. All WNW:

1) Fokker DVII OAW

2) Sopwith Snipe (Late)

3) Sopwith Camel Br1

 

They are all still in the box, some bits painted on the sprue. I have to face the fact that I am never going to finish them. Rigging and etc.

My only real "Large" scale plane residing (probably permanently) on the shelf of doom, over 10 years now...1/32 Su 27

That's not color modulation or pre-shading...that's dust!

It's up there with a ATR 42 and a few Beech 200 King air's amongst other things.

I have no SOD... If I lose motivation and it won't do for parts, I chuck it.

 

My philosophy. But I broke it with the Finnish MiG-21F-13 I started in early 2005. Fourteen years is a bit extreme, but the model actually gets better every couple of years. 

As Frank might have said, I'm doing it "...my waaay!"

 

If I work out how to post pictures here since photo kicked its bucket, I'll let you have a chuckle.

Same as most all Peter's other recent  builds, using aluminum litho sheet, burnished on the model with the help of patterns.

 

Take a look at Peter's P-51 "Lopes Hope" in the in progress section, he uses the same technique.

We actually have an entire 565-page eBook that covers Peter's amazing approach to working with metal:
