Have you ever looked at that pile of kits, most of which you'll never build and ask yourself, "Why buy any more?". 

The answer, IMHO, is that of anticipation. I haven't added it up to count all those kits in the storage room, some of which have not seen the light of day since '09 . :-O. I see a new one and say " I know how I would build that", or "I'd like to build that!" , but never seems to get built. Yet we want more, and More, and MORE!

Over the last few years I've been "thinnin' out the herd," buyin' less and tryin' to build more. I guess that I'm tired of tyin' up ca$h to buy more plastic only to put even more kits on the "pile."

YUP....me too.

Not thinning out the herd but not buyin' anymore kits except parts once in a while.

I love what I have and the prospect of what may get built next.

What a great hobby to enjoy Thumbs UpThumbs UpThumbs Up

Whatever you do, don't build that Dragon Scud Missile launcher.  It will drive you insane and fall apart at the end.

I had nearly as much and was running out of space and display room and sold 50% on the Bay. Nice to have a bit of room in my cabin now!

I was nuts before building it!
