What you describe happens to all of us. What I try to do when something goes south and I lose interest in the build is to try and do a little bit of work on the problem area/stage each day or night until I get that portion of the build done to my satisfaction. Then the other parts of the build start to flow more naturally. Even if it's only 15 minutes or a half hour per session until you get over the "hump", so to speak, you'll get past the problem. That's always worked better for me than putting the project aside, as I tend not to get back to it at all if I do that.
I have 2 x models awaiting PE and final details ,over 10 years for one which was a minor conversion and then the kit was released!

You know the kit you want to start. You buy the aftermarket parts. You gather your supplies. You get started on your project. You then have these ideas and grand visions of the outcome in your mind. Then it seems like all hell starts. You loose one of only two parts (and both have to be used on the model), paint peels, PE bends the wrong way or mutilates and will not correct, and fit issues. You get frustrated and think about trashing everything until the cost of everything you have bought rolls through your head so that is out of the question. You try to overcome by taking a bit of a break, but when you see it again all of those frustration flood back in. Has anyone else had this happen to them and what was your cure? Thanks.
