Does rebuilding a model that fell apart count? If so, I'm in.;)

Oh, I don't know I can probably find something. :lol:


This was my pile of unfinished builds a couple of years ago, it has probably tripled since.

You can count me in! As I have shared before, I have a list of several projects that fit the "Left Behind" bill. For starters, I will work on the 92 Ford Bronco recently posted in the "In Progress" section. I'll work from there... This should be an interesting group build. Aaron, you have some neat subjects in your photo.

You know, I feel like an odd ball here. I don't have any partially finished projects. I can usually only afford one kit or project at a time, so I work on that until I finish it and then acquire the next kit for the next project.

I have no "stash" of kits. I wish I did, then I wouldn't have to wait the sometimes weeks between projects when there's nothing to work on.

Right now, I am waiting on the delivery of a Chevy Bison tractor for my tanker project. I can't do a whole lot until I know the length of the chassis and the distance from the back of the cab to the end of the chassis, and the back of cab to the rear axle distances. So, I can't even start drawing up plans.

Just sit and wait.... :cry:

I don't see why not. Most(some) of us have multiple unfinished or stalled projects. I would second a vote for multiple projects.

I'm a little bummed on the Hy-ranger right at the moment. Late last month I was finally able to track down the fab shop that built the bodywork. Very friendly and helpful. EXCEPT that thay had several LARGE boxes of old fire truck drawings and plans taking up space, so.........the office help was told to shred them all the first week in January this year. :shock: :cry: Talk about bad timing by a couple of weeks..... :cry:

You know it is a shame how people will toss stuff out without thinking. I've learned to hang out when retiring guys are clearing out their offices, it amazes me to see what I've saved from the dumpster because people thought they were just trash. Two of my prizes are a 1971 air tanker publication that include specs for then state of the art tankers, B-17, A-26, TBM avenger, Tigercat etc, the other was a 1967 USFS Water Handling Guide that included the then standard pumper, the Model 56 (most of these were gone by the mid 70's) and the earliest examples of the Model 51 & 60, pumper designs that were leaving service in the early 90's.
