It is easy for us to say we are going to stop buying,,,,but, the model companies aren't helping us with that. (they want to sell us things)
I recently bought 5 kits of a new release,,,,I was going to kit-bash and use vac conversions to do them,,,,,and then the 1/72 Fury was released in 3 boxings for me to build them OOB when I get to that part of the collection. It will be sooooo much easier for me to build them almost OOB than to get Fury models from my stacks of parts and pieces.
It seems that just about the time we get enough old toolings of a model, or get a few built, that some company comes out with a kit for it that is better than what we were going to use before. Academy did that to me with their F-8 Crusader model, they did it so much better than all of the toolings in 1/72 scale, that I wound up buying enough to do all the Squadrons I will need for my collection in the end. (and if they are still for sale when I get to those, if I only "bought as I went along", they would cost twice as much, 4 boxings and 6 years from now)
So, the stash grows.........
