    Question Odd Completed Kits Question

    OK guys this is something that really bothers me, and I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask.

    So I've "completed" bunches of kits, and time goes by and I feel like I could do better on an old kit. So my question is at what point are you guys "finished"? No more work done, just displayed.

    Like many members, I'm doing multiple projects at once, and I'd like to share kits, but I always get the itch to go back, and improve.

    Thanks for any advice!

    Re: Odd Completed Kits Question

    Damn good question. I have a bunch of "Finished" kits. And technically they are "Done" yet I have taken a few back to the table. So I don't have a clue how to answer you. As of right now I only have one kit that is fully finished, as in I will not touch it again. But that is about it. The only real reason that it is considered finished is because it is in the display case in my office, and it is attached to a display base so to re-work it would be a bitch.

    To error is human, to forgive is divine, Luckily I'm neither of these things!

    In my opinion there are not such thing as a finish kit, it can always be improved.
    I considered it "finished" when it is SOLD and no longer in my possession.

    Re: Odd Completed Kits Question

    I call a kit finished when it's completely painted. Unless I've done extensive modifications, it's easier to buy a new kit than strip an old one and repaint it.

    Of course, I almost primarily deal with 1/144 kits, so it's a little more realistic, cost-wise.

    Re: Odd Completed Kits Question

    Kits for me are finished once i have finished what i planned for it. Its one of the reasons i post things i snap in my wip thread instead of in the model gallery.
