Just curious as to how large and ridiculous some people's stashes of kits are. I'm sure my collection is rather small compared to most of you...I wish I had the money to buy more! Here's mine (there are a few other kits behind the ones in the front, and the Xbox 360 box is my parts box)

So you actually expect people to post lists of hundreds of kits? What's the point?

im sure the more organized among us (definatly not me) have this info in a spreadsheet

but i agree to the futility of this excersize

 

maybe a better question is to name the 3 most special or rare kits in thier collection?

Here's 10% of my kits. I use Google Drive and edit and view the list anytime from my Phone. For those that think listing your kits here is a bad idea, then don't post.

might as well show the other side of the room while i'm at it, got that paint stand and about $1000 worth of paint, cans and bottled as well as 30 bottles of glue,  20 white / grey cans of primer and a few dozen jars of textured diorama paint. They decided a year before to get out of the model side of the hobby business, so i had been going in and buying cans of Tamiya paint,  primer and clear at $5 each. Walked in one day and she asked me if I wanted to take it  away! All I had  to do way buy the 3 cans i went in there for at full price.

These kits barely scratch the surface. I have  dozens of boxes in my store room.

Modelers with the most kits in their "stash" only proves that they can and/or know how to spend money.

I have 113 unbuilt kits. Not that many.

 

A few years ago I decided to only buy a kit if I need it to build my current project. I decided to let other people store kits for me.

Any kit I need is always for sale somewhere.

 

I use most of the 113 kits for spare parts.

After I got back into the hobby in the early 80s, kits were still cheap and I started buying them two of each kit. This is my model storage clost it s 14' X 6", what you dont see is that most of these boxes contain two of the same kit. In an effort to make more space I open and repack the box with two kits. theres over 700 kits here.

Some of you guys are close to starting your own hobby store!

I see a new reality tv show "Styrene Hoarders".
