Its quality not quantity, and youve built some fine trucks Dennis. I have to tell myself that all the time. Ive only built about 5% of the models that Ive stockpiled. If I didnt exercise self control, Id try to build them all at once! Anyhow, youve got some great trucks.

Dennis, other than 3 cars and one p/u, that is all I have done in 9 months. my buying on the other hand.............

I always figure a month atleast to do a truck and trailer, and so far I am only doing oob builds, I ever start detailing them, i'll never get anything done, lol.

I have, by my math, 10 years worth of kits to build yet.......[and another 5 years worth of cars/trucks].

Dennis - nice collection you have going. I also like the fact you have plenty of room for future builds.

What is the excavator , kit or diecast ?

Thanks everyone...I'm starting to buy kits for future builds. Never a lack of ideas. If only there was a workaround for the need to sleep, think of what could be accomplished :lol::lol:

What a great collection Alan. You have some pro-built stuff for sure. Im interested to see close ups of some of the trucks in that first picture, like the autocar, and the Freightliner coe with the matching dump trailer, and that red KW logger ;)

Really liking the CF doubles and tractor !

On the someday list to acquire and build. Back in the day I would have dreaded a service call to that outfit - but in 1/25 scale they are tolerable. :lol:

These are very impressive collections. Wish i had pics of mine when i was younger. Now what i still have are glue bombs or just memory pieces good for nothing else, plastic is soft like its starting to melt. There is still some that are salvageable. I agree with sean the cf build looks really good. Someday ill build a set of wobble wagons.
