And of course I am joking and being ironic...

The real problem is I always get side-tracked!! When I should be working on my projects at hand, I always read about something else and on I go...

I am working on some custom car builds I inherited and should be scratching some wheels and rims for it, but instead I am modeling a prototype for a Supacat ATMP wheel and rim plus heavy truck parts in 1/35 scale...

I don't have the willpower either to not stop by when I am surfing the web... I'm a hopeless case!!!

Hi. I'm Matt, and I'm addicted to models. I have 14 models I am working on, currently and can't stop buying new ones. We need a MFHG (model fanatic help group). I quit smoking, before I slowed down on models. I quit drinking, before I slowed down on buying models. If only there weren't so many cool kits to build.

yup, I'm right here with all of you too.

My current obsession ratio is: 50/35/15

50% = unbuilt stashola
35% = unfinished projects
15% = completed models

I'm and addict in training, building one at a time. My stash is only 5 high right now, but I'm sure after the AMPS Atlanta show next weekend, I will succumb to the temptation. I'm predicting the stack will double. Currently have a 1/35 Israeli M50 on the bench....
