Is this not the way in, though? They start with weathering, such that they can make 20 cars in the same paint scheme look different. Then they move onto repaints before the weathering stage, to create more variety, then detail changes/upgrades, and finally onto conversions and kits.
Each time they "advance" a stage, they know that they can always finish off the project - a stage many who start by building are reticent about.
Where's the problem, other than in our failure to reach out to interested young modellers?
