so lads i finally bit the bullet and am stripping my 1:18 meagher wrc escort conversion, due to poor colour reproduction of upscaled decals, its bugged me since i did it a few years ago, of the many conversions ive done i guess a couple of failures aint bad...so now im hoping to re-instate the original livery as ive only the one wrc escort in my wrc collection...anyway, i was thinking, anyone else like to share when/why a project was binned or abandoned or changed? as stated, this one was due to poor decals on my part...any other horror stories out there? pale

Only one project that ive shelved is a Boland escort cosworth. Originally a yacco car, it was stripped and after repainting it yellow, i broke the whole window part off the door. Tried to fix it but came out poorly so a new door was needed.
Fast forward 12months and the paint had chiped so another strip and respray needed. This tjme i wasnt happy with the colour. Should have been a stronger yellow. Colour i used looks very washed out.
Model still sits in the shelf and have no intentions of coming back to it any time soon. The morrette kits i had cast still remain unused after 4 plus years in the box

I have many on my to do pile, the worst to date was the Johm McKerrell 6R4 I finally finished yesterday after 6 years, say completed, it still needs proper wheels. Cut a long story short I done the stripes wrong and put it to one side.
