I really dont know how many kits I have. It would be close to around 700 or so. and I know that at is small in comparison to other modeler stashes. I tried to start an inventory some years ago but only got a few boxes done. 98% are 1:72 scale aircraft. 2% 1:48 scale aircraft. With a handful of 1:32 scale aircraft and a few armor and cars kits. 24 years in the making. I have multiples of many kits 3, 4 and more on some. When I moved back into my mom's house I give away over 100 kits. Many to a Veteran group who sent them to Iraq.

You wanted to see the hidden stash so there it is. It's hard to believe but I know one modeler who has over 12,000 kits last time I talked to him a year ago.
30. January 2014, 22:02
And I thought 22 kits is big...

You need to get it all inventoried on Scalemates, so we can see which ones we want to buy or trade for! :)

After about 10 years, I have finished about 4 kits, have about 10 started but not finished yet and roughly 10 not started. -And _I_ get the feeling it's too many and out of control.. :-/
You'd have to build about one a week to have a hope of building all that!! :-D
30. January 2014, 23:21
Yes and I will be lucky to finish one a month

Hunter, I'm with you. For Sale?

The location of the stash will remain my secret like the Holy Grail. At this moment no sales. I really need to know what I have. I know I
have many of the same kits I could let go with some but need to do that inventory. That will be a good project to start in the spring it's just to cold to work in my garage. Howevery a trade may be in the offing. I am looking for a 1:72 YF-23 unopened. One would be nice, Two even better. Italeri or the testors kit. An ideas and I agree about 1:72 scale the best.
31. January 2014, 01:10
A YF-23?? Hmmm. There's one at my's open but complete...let me know if we can work out a trade. I can get it for cheap
31. January 2014, 01:20
Brandon, Let we think about it and I will let you know
31. January 2014, 01:25

31. January 2014, 01:28

Hello John. Are you saving the champagne bottles for when you finish the last kit? :)
31. January 2014, 05:50
It is true that I have a better selection of kits than most hobby stores. I just go to the pile and pick one or try to remember what box that kit was in. I have a kickname for the stash "THE BLACK HOLE" once a kit goes to the stash it's never seen again.

Hey Mike K, I would turn in to " MODEL HOARDERS". Each week the modeler would have to go into His or Her stash and try not to be killed in a avalanche of kits falling on them looking for a kit. On A&E most likely.
31. January 2014, 13:25
Alan Rush, I like your Idea. If I wait that long I could be in my 100's or more but opening a bottle after I finish my Jolly Rogers Project of over 30 plus kits would be a great may to end it. BTW I just started the project. I have the first 3 aircraft started. Check out my project and stay tune.
