Are you sure you weren't targeted by someone that has seen your collection?

99.9% of thieves have no idea what kits are worth, let alone to pick and choose certain kits and models. Most are drug addicts looking for cash, jewelry and other things they can sell very fast for easy cash or trade for dope. Plastic models aren't a quick buck kind of thing. Pawn shops and meth dealers don't want toy kits.

It's just too odd that you'd get broken into by a random thief that was also well versed in plastic models.

 

kinda what I was eluding to.. it does sound pretty sketchy that some random crackhead that robbed you happens to have knowledge of plastic ?

Yep its a huge bummer guys....I am sure since many got tossed about knocked off shelves dumped there will be many parts Ill need to try and find to do any repairs to the ones still here...that will be tough many are from the 60s era and with my lack of any real budget???  Seems like every time I do some more cleaning up I find something else gone or damaged....depressing to say the least.  Noticed they got my old International and Massey Ferguson farm tractor kits too...my heart just keeps on sinking over it all.   Hopefully maybe some of my brothers in plastic can help once I figure out what all my dads oldies and mine will need now the list was already huge to start with????...really gives one a lost feeling for all ones efforts to save some family history. 

 

 I feel you pain, when I lived in Pittsburgh I got robbed.. my X-Box, DVD player DVDs .. my Television , but the one thing they got I can never replace , my Dad's WWII ribbons & medals .. still kills me to this day .. These guys sound like they were at least a little knowledgeable about plastic given the description of the stuff you said they took. Button up tight, if they know you have more ..

 Sounds like a contraction of twinkie and jerk.

 

Not awfully far from the truth Bill ..

People who flaunt the rules with swearing. :angry:

 

I don't trust people who don't swear, at least occasionally .. it's a sure sign of having something to hide...
