Thanks Paul. Yes it is very addictive. I use to be a builder of kits Mainly 1:48 scale bombers and 1:32 and 1 :24 scale kits which i have plenty of unfinished kits that i will never get around to being built. I remember seeing my first 1:18 scale model then i found this site and i was infected with the 1:18 scale disease LMAO . You will have to show us some of your stuff Mate. :shock:

Cheers
Greg

So, Studly, are you working off a checklist of the 1/18 releases (and if so what % have you obtained) or do you buy them as you stumble across them? When I was still into 1/32 armor I was trying to make sure I got at least one of every type of vehicle 21C or FOV made, and then start on different paint jobs


Right now with the 1/35 kits I am trying to build one of every production vehicle listed in the Encyclopedia of German Tanks, but I will build any WWII combatants' airplanes.

Thanks for showing us your scores.

Your building quite an impressive collection there Mate. Running out of room yet? :arrow: I am. I keep reworking the space and getting creative with it......But can you ever have too many toys?? :P And then there is 1:1 artifacts. More space :!: God help you if you get into 1/6 stuff. :lol:

I'm loving that California Cutie P-38, been looking for that one, can't ever seem to find it at a reasonable price, congrats on the score!
