Ever do this?

You buy a new model and want to dig right in, so you put aside the one you're already working on, or put off starting the one you were going to start. And you imagine that poor other model sitting there saying "HEY! What about me?" :(

It must be my distant Celtic ancestry, believing inanimate objects have life.

Some of the kits that have been sitting on the to-do pile for over a decade have been mumbling "You forgot all about me, didn't ya, ya rat?"

I've got SHELVES of kits which call out to me to finish them. It happens slowly, but surely. Still, it does nothing to make the unfinished kits quiet down. In fact, it makes them increasingly hostile! :eek:

Shintoism is based on this notion, so it's not the Celts alone.

None of my half-builts have started talking to me yet. Nor do I hear their plaintive whisper in the night. I threaten them with a hammer and jug of acetone everyday -keeps 'em quiet.

Maybe you got a poultrygoosed in the house trying to lure you into eternal damnation via your guilt for abandoning your 'children'? I saw something like that in a movie once. Once. ... Or maybe it was a Lovecraft story... "The Models of John P." ?

Well, I'm part Scottish and no japanese, so... :)

And yeah, despite trying to be careful, I transposed a couple of letters in Anthropomorphize. :(

It's the finished ones sitting on the shelf, arms outstretched, gaping mouths revealing glistening fangs, that get to me...
"We're coming to get you, Barbara!"
...however, why they call me Barbara, I'll never know...

Model kits with souls?

No biggie to this Scots-Irish descended fellow. I've always anthropomorphized EVERYTHING!

Which that's why I've beat up on some of the more difficult mocels. Some of them REFUSE to fall into line. We simply can't have that, now can we?

Many of them have also whupped up on me.

We are enemies. They never let me forget that and I never let them forget that I will dominate or destroy them. There is no other choice. It's just the way things are between us.

I am desperately trying to get through the final 25% of my 1:350 Enterprise refit build. Aside from a 1:1000 TOS Enterprise I built halfway through the 350 build, I've been working solely on the Big E and trying to ignore the siren call of the 8 other kits I have in my "too build" pile in the corner.
