Well just thought I'd show that not everything goes to plan while scratch building -so here's some of my rejects. These can be anything from bad build, practise pieces, burn-out bin jobs or whatever.

First up:
ZiS PMZ-1

















This was a pre-interweb build gone horribly wrong, only once connected was I able to find the relevant correct info - i.e. the info I had gave the wrong wheelbase so needed a new chassis plus other things, so preserve my limited remaining sanity this project got binned.
More to follow :blush:

and another project that has been in a "holding pattern" for the past 3 years or so - have never been happy with the chassis angles (mind you I can't find any suitable reference material to confirm/deny I'm right or wrong :blink: ) maybe I should just stop being anally retentive and just finish it :S

Scammell Scarab @ 24th scale



















Cheers for having a gander.
As always feel free to offer words of wisdom on anything that doesn't look right, shoddy workmanship etc. - always good to see things through fresh eyes.

Cheers guys for the encouraging words.
Glenn - was thinking I really should finish the Scammell Scarab - like you say "no one would ever know", but best I finish a few other little bits laying around first :whistle: .
PJ - I don't know if I could ever use the term 'craftsman' but thanks.

Anywho, here's another piece that is still laying around. Started this hull for a commission job @ 100th scale, however I managed to convince the client that 75th scale would be better ;) and after some thought and arguement the build recommenced in 75th scale and this hull has been laying around ever since. Really should bin it as it takes up quite a bit of space :unsure: . This was to be the master pattern for a fibreglass hull
Tsesarevich -










More rejects to follow :)
Cheers for popping by.

What's is/was the hull to be of? I know a man that might want to take this off your hands and finish it depending on what it is.

Well time to add another reject to this listing.
I do believe that the 1937 C-65 Farm Crawler @ 24th scale should now reside here :( , from this thread - Farm Crawler

More to follow as I'm in an experimental phase :side:
