#1 LSP on your Shelf of Doom - post pix and cheer on

Recommended Posts

My take on the SOD is that the shelf is essentially right above the bin and sort of ready to drop in with an easy flick of the wrist.   I give these kits one last try.  Jerry Rutman's Brewster Buffalo is dangling, saved only by the large amount of time spent. That and Jerry's Ta-152 kit.  Not much drive to complete these  now that styrene kits are available.  My Combat Models Tigercat will never be completed now that I have the new Tigger Models kit.  Probably a few others that will enter the SOD category now that I am moving during this August.  I will not be hauling them around.

I try to hit the insert image from URL tab below but it doesn’t allow me to see my photos.   Hmmmmm.

Try this, there is a drop down list that gives several options for a link. Choose BBCode, then copy and paste the URL ( that is to the right of the green drop down arrow ) to the LSP post you want to insert the image into.

So many awesome projects in this thread that we've all stalled on for one reason or another - It's both comforting and a bit depressing to see that I'm not the only one :rolleyes:

 

A question for everyone - how many of you plan or expect to one day finish the project(s) you've shared here? How many hope but don't expect? How many likely won't?

 

Of those who likely will never finish a build, have you thought about either buying/selling, or trading a shelf of doom kit with another modeller's SOD project to help each other's planes not end up either under 6 pounds of dust or in the rubbish? It's something that's come to mind from time to time, but I've never explored the potential for any of my 28 (at last count) aircraft in various stages of completion. Curious to hear others' thoughts on this... and if the answer to these questions is no, what will it take realistically to motivate you to finish the plane?

 

Cheers!

Mike

Come to think of it I sent Ernie Ling my AD-5W Guppy, he will finish that long before I would have and he will do a damn nice job of it... Was hoping to see it done before Nats but that won't happen. Next year though, definitely.

I have only 2 LSP's on my Shelf Of Doom.  Both are Trumpeter kits; namely the P-51B and P-47 Razorback.  Perhaps there's a 5% chance I'll complete the Mustang, which I didn't bother to take any pictures of, but I hope one day to finish the P-47, as that plane is a favourite.  Alas I got totally bamboozled with how I wanted to detail the engine, so I put it away in favour of the Tamiya Spitfire MkXVI I did for the blue theme'd group build.

These bits are now back in the box.  Since the Spitfire build, I've been dealing with family issues, so that has prevented me going ahead with the plane I was going to build for the Multi Engine group build, and I want to finish that, another Tamiya kit, and the Airfix Hellcat before I get back to this one.

 

That said, here's an idea for a future group build.  "Finished Shelf of Doom builds"!! :lol:

 

 

Cheers,

Michael

Interest, ultimately. Ernie never got his before the fire and the plane basically makes his man parts tingle. Once he finishes it, I’ll post some photos up here as he is no longer on LSP
