I don't think I've ever spent more than $40 for a kit. But that will probably change some day. I have in my bucket list, a Lunar Models version of the Nautilus from the Disney movie. That's likely to run three figures. Then there will be the expense of installing a fire place because something like that totally deserves a mantle.

I dont count how much I spend on any given model because you can't put a price on the relaxation and pleasure it gives me to spend time on them. That to me is invaluable. But the most I've spent thus far (mostly because the wife counted it lol) on a model was around 1300.00 and counting. That also includes the paint however as I bought it for this model.

do I dare ask what kit ?

the max ........ as little as posible !! i hate dropping $20 on a kit, let alone another $100 or more on aftermarket stuff. no offense to all the after market guys and to the people who do spend the cash. thier products and builds are head and shoulders above what i build. love looking at them all and scouring the resin stuff. this is a hobby i have to pretty much get by on what i have in my stash.

I think for me it depends on the kit itself. While I might have a little fun slamming together the average kit just for fun. I do tend to go overboard with something that really trips my trigger. Like the 1/16th Petty Charger or the Batmobile to name a couple. I don't think i've ever dropped more than a $100 on any one model though.

I don't keep track. I just build them the way I like them.
