Can we see your model stash?

Recommended Posts

Would you mind showing us a picture of all your boxed kits?

Here is most of what I have. I try to collect ones I remember from when I was young. Looking at them alone , takes me back and makes me young again.

Darn.  Keep the builds coming though.  I saw a J-Car on the top right.  I actually built one and recently got another one.  I have no idea why other than it was a good price and it's the only 1/2 clear body model I own.

Thanks , I always liked the J-Car and never built it so maybe some day.

I agree with Snake. Not that I have anything to hide or be ashamed of. It's just that I would have to assemble my stash from five different areas and it would probably take a couple of hours to set up and put away.

I am not trying to twist anyone's arm here. If you don't want to then don't and why post here at all?

Just ask'in

Looks like an original issue of the Attempt 1 - nice! Some other good stuff too.

I've actually sold some of the stash a few years ago, some i knew I'd never build, some i do regret selling, which is why I don't sell anything out of the stash anymore, please don't ask if any of them are for sale, there not !!

You have more stuff than MOST hobby shops.  Nice.

And my "stash" is everywhere.   Under my desk at work, in two buildings at home and scattered about in them.   I divorced 5 years ago and still keep finding and re-finding stuff I forgot I have.

Don't have any photos of the entire stash, but here's a pic of my last order being delivered.

Nice score on the Haseagawa issue of the Essex Wire Cobra.  Would like to find one of those.  What is the Daytona Coupe kit on the bottom next to the Lindberg?

Some of these stashes are impressive to say the least.

Now, I'm guilty of this too, so I'm not pointing any fingers at anyone, but...

What's the point?

I think a lot of us have more kits than we'll ever get around to building. I mean, there are a lot of people on this board in their 60s, and they have literally 100s of kits. The reality is, they won't all get built.

It's like those guys that have an old muscle car rotting away on their property, but they are adamant that they'll get it fixed up.

So why do we do it?

 

I have no rational explanation for why i collect as many kits as I do. I always buy with great expectations and plans, but then the kit goes in the pile.

Ask my wife, she'd be glad to show you.  With commentary.

No need to be sorry from my perspective.  I enjoy seeing the kits just like I enjoy the what did you get today thread.

I was wondering about the coupe also.  I know there are many obscure Japanese kits of GT40's etc. so I'm guessing it's a motorized kit without an engine.  If I'm wrong and it's a full detail kit then I want one. 😁
