well said mark! i've had this problem ever since i was a little kit i may not be bookssmart, but when it comes to keeping a visual inventory in my mind of my library of kits i know what i have, what i used to have, what i've traded, and what has been gotten rid of.... its been this way since childhood..... my dad and mom never knew how i knew what hotwheels cars i had and did not have! they would come home thinking they got me a new toy car and my small smart behind would simply reply "I have one of those Dad, but i like that one and would love another"
i need to make a new inventory list of my current kits, but as much as i trade here on mcm And recently had sucessful trades/ purchases on Facebook stuff comes and goes faster then it can be inventoried LOL And how i can remeber what i have with something as small as a set of valve covers i somehow know and remeber what parts i have..... End of Rant LOL now who wants to trade!
Great trade with B-body fan (mike) he Raked in and got a 3 for 1 LOL double dragster kit makes 2 complete cars..... now my wife can stop nagging me cause i got rid of 3 cars and only took in 1 van ! thanks again mike look forward to future tradeing!
Erik i have so many projects I tend to go from one to another very often sometimes i think this is to minimize mistakes, but i tend to find on some builds i just wand "done" i will omit certain details that don't bother me like leaving a chrome gas filler cap off, door handles, or perhaps a spoiler....... sometimes if i want a kit done faster i will just not do things that i like to such as engine wires, or leave coils and distributors off the engines. I do love the fact of the hobby that if put together correctly our little scale vehicles can be "REBUILT" i tend to find myself updating or changing up alot of older builds like switching rims and tires, or motor swap
