Stash stock take, I should be..........


Recommended Posts

In the same boat Phil. Although i'll quite gladly add  a few 1/32 Fw190 A5/A6 kits to the stash if they ever came up to buy on evilbay (for a price i could actually afford). 

I've seen some 'stashes' and they would make Hannants feel inadequate.

.so should I be ashamed  of a total of 14 kits.........

Some would call that the vacation stash. :D

Me, I think it's a very focused one. 

Mine is all over the map. I mean I have Nascar stock cars in mine, nevermind a '59 Cadillac...

Carl, 

I'm pretty sure we've seen you with 14 kits on the bench this past year, let alone just that many in the stash.

Focus Man!

Ok guys and gals, did a stock take of the stash today, all virgin kits...............didn’t take me very long .......so should I be ashamed  of a total of 14 kits..........:wacko:

At least the counting didn't take too much of your lifetime :D, no Excel needed for doing the adds.

It's quality that counts not quantity.

Cheers Rob

Ironically I did record them, so I now have six AFV’s at 1/35, six aircraft at 1/48 and two 1/32 aircraft........it took me all of 5 mins to count them.........:lol:

Don't feel bad Phil, I can't count mine on the fingers of one hand! Tend not to buy unless it's going to get built soon.

I try to stick to that concept, ironically I don’t feel bad, I’d be more worried in seeing stacks of stuff knowing there was a snowflakes chance in hell of building them...........:)

I *just* have a few more than you, Phil (and will not dare to show a pic :rolleyes: ). I still believe I will build them all, assuming I do not get sidetracked like now, where I am focused on designing and 3D printing the components of a 1/32 (of course) Travel Air Mystery Ship ...

Ok, since you asked ...

Overall view ...

And split views ...

It fills a volume of about 1.3 cubic meter (3.6 x 0.6 x 0.6 ), plus a bit of overspill of ship kits above the wine cellar ...

The "magic room" is actually also the attic and "machine room" with a bench opposite the shelves holding the various machines like 3D printers and ancillaries, metal lathe, vertical milling machine, CNC mini-milling machine, vac-forming one, etc....

So, the analogy with a ship is not far away : hold + workshop in one place :)

Thanks Hubert for magical mystery tour......did spot a ZM P51D/K.........there’s not that many..........:rolleyes:

Not that many, yes ... Although the stash is predominantly resin stuff (the white cardboard boxes you see) like Fisher, Aerotech, HPH, Lukgraph, Silver Wings, Montex and the like. Besides the Fisher ones, which have become rarer than hen’s teeth because of the Paradise fires, there are even rarer ones, like a Scratchbuilder Staggerwing ....

A very old pic.  I get in the habit of wanting to build different variations of different aircraft. I guess it’s why I have about 7 F-16’s and 13 Phantoms still in the stash.  Trying to convince myself I need to get rid of some of these multiples.

My problem is when 'deals' come along.  A large portion of my stash is second-hand kits that I got usually for 1/2 or less of retail.  For instance, Saturday I bought a Dragon Sturmhaubitze 42' w/Zimmerit and a Dragon SdKfz 250/9 in 1/35 scale for under $31 US.  Usually, one of my club members will send an e-mail to all of the members listing what he wants to sell.  By sending an e-mail. stuff gets set aside for you before the meeting.  Apparently I beat 7 other guys to the Sturmhaubitze.  I really should neaten up and take a pic or three of my stash for you guys.
