Me, I'm dishonest, and you can always trust a dishonest man to be dishonest.
Honestly, it's the honest ones you have to watch out for!!!

WOW 25 WIP's.  I'm impressed JHM.  Although, I'm trying to catch up.  My current WIP list (all 1/72)

AV-3 (Hokum/OV-10 hybrid) for the "Beating the Air into Submission" GB
F-14A   RW USN
P-51 Twin jet conversion.  this one got moved to the back burner while I did all the group builds this spring.

FW-190D Zwilling.  Just started this one for the club WWII '46 contest next spring.
B-49B  Another one for the club WWII "46 contest.

We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.


Ye gods, does this include WIPs that have been 'IP' for tens of years?  :o
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Cats are not real. 
They are just physical manifestations of collisions between enigma & conundrum particles.

Any aircraft can be improved by giving it a SHARKMOUTH!

I get a headache just thinking about them all.....

Too true!  :thumbsup: Too true!

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Brian da Basher

My list is empty. I start a project and finish it, regardless how much cussing and PSR and pure spite it takes. This is because I have no actual bench, but a little box upended on a stool for a work area in my tiny cottage. I imagine those with an "In Progress" pile must be in a higher tax bracket.
