    I find I usually have a couple of jobs on the go. Not necessarily my boats. I'm in the process of building trees for my N-scale layout. Also the refit of my first launch to try and make a narrow boat.

    Hi chaps l find that having a couple of builds or rebuilds going on at the same time helps. If l run into a problem or have to have a good delve into youtube. I find doing something else helps me to work out the problem.

    That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

    I have had a couple of models on the go in the past for two reasons.
    One is just to make a change so that i am not getting bogged down with having to struggle through it all together,
    Secondly when you get to some bits that need gluing i put it aside and work on the other one and when that boat part needs gluing i do both that way i don't wast glue.

    Call me tight but with my budget it helps LOL!!!

    All of my unfinished models have sailed, they are just not finished.
    My models are all different building methods and materials and I can get stalled on the intensity of the detail. When I need a break I build something different for a rest.
    Portgarth took near 2yrs with other builds along the way.
    Boulogne Etaples took 6 weeks
    Boothbay Lobster boat 6 weeks
    Hoga tug 4 weeks .
    They can be viewed in my harbour πŸ‘
    My unfinished builds tend to be 1 to 2 yrs each.

    Attached is a first run of prototype jet drives that OceanWorks developed with my help. My scratch build Shannon.

    Also a link to a more recent picture after exhaustive scratching.

    Hi Mike.
    You certainly are not the odd one out.
    Your models are a credit to you in every way.
    For me I like to move from boat to boat.
    Each to their own.
    All the boats aforementioned apart from the one in the box have sailed.
    I enjoy your build blogs with your quality builds.
    Regards Bill.

    I must be the odd one out, I couldn't contemplate starting another model until the current one is finished and ready to sail.
    Can I ask why you have so many models unfinished?
    I just hope they see the water - eventually

    B) HMS Repulse, circa 1941.scale 1/128
    C) HMS Bluebell upgrade.scale 1/48.
    D )HMS Bluebell new build from scratch...awaiting the grandchildren to become old enough to assist Grandad,well....... that’s my excuse πŸ‘πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Many other boats sat on the shelves gathering dust.
    Regards Bill.

    I have only one boat kit in my locker all the rest are planes and cars, all being plastic models. Set them aside for my grandsons, who like to play with ones grandpa built, but are not so keen on building themselves. Though this could be just their ages, 5,8,11.

    So for the time being, about 11 of the finished kits are made into wind direction indicators and "flying" on my backyard fence. If not that, they are put away on bins or hanging from the ceiling of my workshop. Model rc boat building only began after I retired in 2015.
