Most of the kits I have are nothing to be desired, I only have three or four rare models and those are kits that you eather love them or hate them, most of the kits in my collection are show rods, but I also have a few 1/8th scale kits and a few Japanese kits in my collection

This is my kit stash. There are a few others that I keep in a cabinet because they are older. The shelf is two kits deep, about 225 kits or so. It's not the largest stash, but it's good enough for me.

My stash is I am assuming, ( I know, I shouldn't do this), is pretty average... I currently have about 8 or 10 started projects that I am slowly working on... The majority to be built before I retire, in about 20 years, is about 60 kits. The rest of the stash is for after retirement, about another 350 kits and growing... I am not a collector, I am a builder... I have several rare and old kits, my oldest going back to '63, and I plan on building them all...

If it's in a box or a bag and I own it, it will be built, eventually...

My stash is growing again, without a place to work all I can do is buy. Mine stands around 200+/-, I have some 1/72 armour and aircraft I haven't counted in a while so I'm not sure exactly how big it is.

Nice stash Corey and 225 kits is nothing to sneeze at as I know that I won't be finishing that many kits in my life time.

When my stash got to 100, I swore I wouldn't buy anymore kits. I bought 1 at the IPMS nats (Fujima garage) and another kit yesterday at our FAST meeting. The Fujima garage will be the start of a forever planned diorama.

How do you mean "what to get rid of"???

Important is what others decide to get rid off, so it can be added to your collection.
