    Come on guys, we all have some laying around. Post them here.

    I started thinking about this the other day and looked at the ones on my “In Progress” shelf and found that I had:

    1) P-40 Twin - Last worked on a week ago. Stopped to finish the current GB
    2) Short Stirling - Not worked on since last month. Same reason
    3) Robert L Scotts P-40K - 8 months. Don’t really know why I didn't get back to this one.
    4) F-102 - 8 Months. Lost the canopy
    5) Fw-190D - 8 months. Got too busy with group builds and never got back to it.
    6) B-17C - 4 Years. The masking for the second shade of silver began to get to me so I took a break and never returned.
    7) Boeing 307 - 4 years. Lots of problems with this one but the reason I stopped was that as there were no longer panel lines on the wings, so I was going to pull the masking off the B-17C after it was painted and put it on the 307’s wings.

    Then Terry mentioned that he just picked up a Bristol Bulldog and I remembered one that I hadn't finished and I dug these out, all collecting dist for at least 6 to 8 years.

    8 ) Bristol Bulldog - Ripped off some decals removing masking. Eventually bought another kit for the decals but never got back to it
    9) Supermarine S6B - Managed to mix up the pontoon parts so all the attachment slots are on one and none on the other. I bought another one of these kits too, but never got back to it.
    10 11) Fokker DVII and Nieuport 17 - I was going through a biplane faze back then and it ran it’s course before these were completed.

    Well hopefully now I've shamed myself into working on some of these old projects now that winter is approaching, but I’m not promising anything.

    Do I get a prize?

    Cheers

    Wessex HAR 3 1/48th scale
    Typhoon (re-build) 1/32nd scale

    Mosquito FBVI 1/32nd scale
    Tornado F3 1/32nd scale
    Spitfire MkXIV (re-build) + V1 1/48th scale
    And I'm sure there are others!

    Unfinished vs unstarted makes a big difference. Those that I've started (and not forgotten about) are:

    1/48 Hasegawa Bf109G-6
    1/48 Testors/Italeri kitbashed CF-5 Freedom Fighter (still pretty bashed)
    1/24 Airfix Bf109E
    1/48 Tamiya P-47M (my stalled Nose Art GB entry which I plan to get back to soon)

    plus a few armour kits I've given up on.

    I can't even remember all of them.
    There are two ships that I have been working on, one since 1993, and one since 2001.
    A German Jagdpanzer that is 3 years on.
    The aircraft....too many to count.
