now that we'er all stuffed from too much turkey it time to think about the next project to start or finnish the other ones.
i have the problem of going like hell untill i get one frammed up and then it seems like it gets set aside or hung from the ceiling only to start another.
i have several projects i'd like to do but i can't make up my mind what to start, because i'll get it 3/4 done und then...........hey there's that kit i was going to build 5 years ago, i better get started on it. i've got a 40x50 shop
so i have a lot of hanging space.

its a hell of a dilemna

e-mail me direct at bing.1944@live.com for any questions
thanks Bryan

Hi I'm in the same boat as you. I have 7 airplanes in different stages of construction. Some are going on 5 years now. But there is so much new stuff every year!!.

Too many planes not enough time.

Never enough time! I have all my parts for the DF jet I am designing/building now (wing cores, retracts, wing tube, wood and engine/pipe/fan) so now I have no excuse to not start cutting wood!

if its got a wing or two and an engine - I like it!

Same dilema here! I got fired up a month ago,building boards loaded with new projects,and then comes the "other priorities" Pack the projects away so not to loose parts ( I have a 10 year old grand-daughter who likes to carve balsa){modeler potential?},and then I lose interest for a while.Well then my Son(modeler) comes home for Christmas and gets me motivated again. Well this time it cost me a "Quickie" complete with 25 TT motor and Logitrol servos (yes Logitrol ) but at least I'm "fired up again(what are Sons for : ). Ya know, there's an older retired gentleman in our club who says "even if you only spend 15 min.a day on a project,at least you have accomplished something and kept the interest going). By gosh, he's right Oh well, enough blabber, back to the building board

It's also amazing how fast a stalled project can be completed with 15 min. per day.If I can get myself to the model, I can generally get something done.

I have three planes on the go, problem is I have a wife that's bugging me to do more work on the basement. I'm at the part I hate the most, putting drywall compound on then sanding it off. On......off......on.....off. It never ends. Building is just so much more fun to do. Oh well.

Just think of sanding of drywall compound as pratice to get the plane perfectly smooth.
I never crash...I land with style!

The different is, Mr. Fodder,

who really cares of the wall isn't smooth? The plane? Well that's another matter

Hi Guys...It's nice to hear that I'm not the only one suffering from this delima...I think we tend to stall out on a projects when you hit a certain phase that you don't particularily enjoy or do something to a project and you didn't like the results...I really like Cecil's suggestion about spending 15 min. per day on the project and another suggestion is to find a video with a similar plane flying on it, and watch it occasionally for motivation. Now if we just spent less time on the computer.......bye....Gary

I know what everyone is saying, dad and I have lots of projects started, but something else always comes up.

(And yes, 50 airplanes plus everything crashed or sold, has been a tag team operation. )

Dim the lights, and the walls look great, but the plane :
