My Basement Collection: These Poor Models Never Made it to the Big-Time!
I am sure some of you have a few models laying around the house, and/or workshop, that just never got any attention. These are the “Hanger Queens” of the Modeling World…LOL. Something is broken, Missing Parts, Bad paint-job, mediocre effort, failures, dusty, and just no room to properly display. You thought so highly of them at the time but then they just faded away to a dusty death. Some that may have been good for the day but now it does not compare with your current work quality. Some the cat just knocked to the floor and now the landing gear is missing.
Well, this article is dedicated to my collection that meets the above attributes. They never got any love but still worth showing. You spent good quality time building them, good money buying them, and at the time had such high hopes. But for some reason this collection never made it to the big time.
I invite you to add pictures of your models which also meet the above criteria, those Hanger Queens which you once loved and hoped for a masterpiece, but they just could not hack it. BTW I have a lot more then the few pictured here. Those did not even make it to this showing…LOL!
