I would hate to think how much money is sitting there, in tools and kits and parts. I have wanted to inventory my collections for some time now but mine will be a piece of cake compared to this!

Impressive, but not necessarily in a positive way.  Maybe Kevin likes shopping more than building?

No...Kevin builds... a LOT!  And builds well too. He's won a few Best of Show awards in addition to many class awards!  He's very eclectic in what he builds. Builds everything!  He's building a 1/35 scale German Locomotive right now that is pretty awesome! And he made that train trestle that you see in the 5th row down, first pic on the left numbered 1002644, from scratch.  He's just fortunate enough that he can spend a lot of time with his hobby!

Sorry Charlie....it was my birthday on the 18th and my daughter threw a small surprise party at her house for me on the 17th. So I kinda had to be there.....  

And next year, the show will be on the 18th. There's your birthday present to yourself. :)


Hopefully, we'll see each other soon. I won't be at NNL this year- wedding to go to. Now with all the weddings out of the way, I can resume my normal show schedule, as Classic Plastic go nuptualed-out, too last September.

it's an airline. Runs off the compressor so all he has to do is quick connect into it and go.

Looks like he's been living in the man cave a long tine!


Just curious, what's the pipe that runs along the front edge of his bench for?

Did you leave out the word "hobby" in front of shop? Idon't believe my lhs has than big of a selection of stuff!

both of my local hobby shops combined don't have that kind of inventory...color me green with envy.

Looks like he either owned a LHS that went out of business or purchased the inventory of one that did.
