Pile of Shame
GregWise posted a topic in General ModelingAfter posting '10 yrs in the pile of shame' thread I inventoried the rest of pile and here is what I found, some are almost 20 yrs old. I'm not sure what I should do with them. I know most will never have a second chance on my bench while others have been on the bench several times over the years only to be returned to the pile. So if you see something you like please comment or make an offer, I may or may not part with it, who knows you may have the fix I need to finish another one. pretty sure all the parts are here but it's a real basket case. I did finish this one, rescribed it, but the decals silvered so I set about starting a refinish and AMS took over- nuff said. Model kit from hell, this one has been on the bench several times worst kit I ever met. but starting to turn around. not happy with the finish and not sure why. oldest kit in the pile destined for the chit can. not happy with the foil work so far- it had a bad reaction the the base coat primer. these were going to be a birthday gift for my Trekie sister but they are crappy kits and I didn't want to insult her. just wanted to revisit a childhood build... I grew up and lost interest. lost interest. wet sanded through the paint on the hood, just need to respray it and move on with it. Started a rescribe and reworking the kit about 15 yrs ago and now with the GWH kit (I just turned in my IPMS review on it) it may never be finished. not happy with canopy issues. crappy kit bested by the newer Hasegawa kit. missing the engine compartment door. if you have for sell or trade let me know. at least 15 yrs in the pile just not happy with it and only held on to it in hopes that my modeling would skills improve. tracks are useless. gave up while reworking the landing gear, 90% rescribed. newest member to the club, just not happy with the colors.
