total investment must be around the $5000 mark.  :o
i was lucky enough to get a great deal on a load of kits from a deceased estate a while back.
if not for that, my collection would be around half of what it is ;)

Yeah thats a lot of Work for the Future.
Love Tamiya kits they are better to build.
thanks for the Albatros Info unusual Way but great finish.

thanks mate - working on a new camera, and some improved lighting, then will show some pics that hopefully show it off a lot better. :D
as a youngster in South Africa, we only ever had access to Tamiya, Matchbox and Airfix kits.
i often found Airfix and Matchbox a bit iffy with fittings, but Tamiya has mostly been an absolute pleasure to build. if it's not fun, i try to avoid. i like to live by my profile motto! :D
These new (to me) kitmakers such as Eduard, Trumpeter, Meng are pretty pricey....
the Meng King Tiger in my collection looks rather daunting, at 608 parts!  o_O
anyway, i enjoy the challenge

cheers!  8)
