I like to have 2 of everything, one to work out the bugs, and one to do up right. Like a lot of us, if I built one kit a month I would pass on before the stash is used up. But i have an addiction of sorts, despite have 2 dozen vintage AMT 32 Fords, when I find one I just have to get it. My newest fascinaton is with the Japanese shakotan/bosozoku/hippari thing. I am collecting JDM kits and Hippari wheel sets. Its probably a good thing they have to come from overseas or I'd be spending a lot more. And then theres all those Modelhaus tires and wheels................and the new Pegasus Crossbars, soverigns, and chrome reverse, then Round 2 Releases the 49 Merc, the 40 delivery.........I'm in trouble!

Well there are 42 Peterbilt 378 long hauler, 6 Peterbilt 378 and about 30 Peterbilt 377s.

All European trucks are maybe 60 to 70 kits.

I feel left out, i have 4 F1 cars, a C5 racing vette, a 1970 Mustang Mach1/ Boss 302 and 2- 1/12 Shelby GT500's waiting to be built. I did have about 50 total and who knows how many glue bombs before my son was born last year but they all had to go to make room in our apartment. Sucks not having a hobby room anymore but the trade off was worth it.

I feel rather small compared to all of you.. I've only just started collecting kits instead of buying then building though.

I love this thread.  I love seeing that I'm not the only addict.  I love seeing that my stash, though too big, isn't as big as others.  I love looking thru the collections and seeing kits I didn't know existed, and wishing that kit was hidden away never to be finished in my collection.  And I'd love to go shopping in some of you guy's houses.

My stash is now minus two that I have started working on, but I added two, forgot, minus three

 

I dont think this is a case of the who has the biggest wins, no I see it more of a loss,  loss of getting to build kits

It's hard to get a picture of all of them. They're in a little closet all by themselves. i'm fortuante to have my own studio just for modeling,artwork or whatever.

I've got 37 boxes of parts in the basement,too.

This is a recent photo of my work bench. The top shelf is just display, but all the boxes on the other shelves represent an unfinished project. This year's New Year's Resolution is to get more of them finished and onto the shelves.  I'm currently finishing up the '34 Ford Rat Rod that had been sitting since 2005. There are many more that are much older than that.  Let's just say that the putty and paint is more than dry!

I have about 60 kits on-hand so I always enjoy threads like this and seeing the guys that have hundreds, or thousands of model kits. Huge stashes are fun to look at but at the same time I feel it's better them than me.

 

Thanks for sharing, everyone!

As far as a seperate insurance rider to cover modle kits specifically ? No

 

I think I have a rider to cover to cover collectibles / jewelry. Need to ck with the wife god on specifics.
