Instructions for Entries in the Shelf of Shame

Inform everyone of your entries on the "Shelf of Shame" then make the commitment to finish the kit(s) within a set timeframe, proving completion with photographic evidence.

I have some that will be joining in last few months of this year. A certain (ahem) C-47, an SEAC B-24, a Hurricane MkII, some F-105s and a YB-49 (but probably not all simultaneously). Can think of some others - particularly some well-intentioned Altaya/IXO purchases that never made it beyond disassembly and the prolonged ponder.

Until then, I can only salivate over all your work... (Damn - no emoji for that).

Funny you should say that. As you can see, one of my Shamers is an Altaya/IXO/Amercom Do17Z. With homemade Finnish swastikas printing beautifully at work, it should be completed once that damned decal sheet with the white circles arrives from China (now 6 weeks and counting). Most of my minimal time spent in the Man Cave in recent days has been devoted to a repaint of the same companies' Do24 as one of the six RAAF examples acquired from the Dutch East Indies. And yes, it was the item nearly bathed in paint when I flipped me lid with the airbrush last night! :oops:

I have got to start a thread for that pair of Dragon Tornado Gr.4s which have been getting the "Mmmmmehhhh.... Maybe later" for three years now. I will post a thread later.

OK, you will have noted I've finally got a couple of Shamers (the C-47 and Do17Z-3) off the books and gone and added the three DNFs from the 4th Group Build. I've seen the light and confessed. Are there any other forum tragics who also want to air their dirty laundry? :?:

Keeping very shtum for now (name, rank and serial number only, thank you) but I think I'll throw my Shetland into the ring when the GB ends. Or perhaps my Valiant.
