I can finally add some small progress to this Thread on a couple of my own models.

First off, I shot another dullcoat and then removed the canopy masking from my F/A-18 Hornet:



Now all I have to do is wait for my replacement burner cans, clean the canopy and mount the ordinance and this bird will finally be done.

I also shot a coat of flat black to the underside and select areas on the space shuttle. Man that felt good making some progress on that for once:








Well that completes my small update. I'll be back soon with hopefully a lot more progress to show.

Thanks all for looking in, comments are welcome.

Way to keep moving on those shelf queens guys! I'm jealous - my shelf of doom just keeps getting bigger!

Thanks! I still feel like I haven't cleared anything yet! Man, I want more shelf queens done!

Stay tuned, more to come.

Well, at the end of 2017, I can honestly say that I did manage to complete about a third of these models. Most of these were extremely difficult and challenging to work on for me; I also tried to achieve results that are beyond my skill set on a few of them. About half of the remainder that weren't finished got a lot further so there's a good chance I could finish them next year (2018). We'll see. I'll continue to try and knock them out and hopefully do better in the new year.


How did everyone else do?

Well Mark, I think I let us down. I only got one done this year of that list I had made last year (and i added a few more to the pile).

But, one is better than none and I did make some progress on a few on the shelf. Just bit off more than I could chew and had too much going on work wise this past year!

I'll keep plugging away at them!

Yeah, I know how that feels... I also let other things distract me and didn't finish nearly as much as I'd hoped. I was hoping to get at least half the list done, but no. I will also continue plugging away at mine so that hopefully I can get them off the workbench once and for all.

Good luck to you in 2018! Maybe we should start another Modelers Resolution Thread for this year so we can keep each other motivated again this year. Your call my man.

Sounds good to me Mark! Do you want to start a new one or me?? We could even just change the heading on this one and keep it going?
2017,2018, 2019.......

Change the heading.... Now that's a thought. :hmmm

How about you start the new one since I did this one? Unless you prefer just changing the heading?
