OH YES, I'd like some 1/24th kits of some of the WWII fighters !! But, they are pretty $$ for me. I have quite a few WWII 32nd Trumpy kits I'm still saving till I get a bit better at painting, and that will have to do for me.! I do also have quite a few British aircraft too. Besides I'm limited to space, as it's all here in my bedroom.
I know, I wish I had kept all the kits I've sold when I thought I wouldn't want them ! Yikes
I also have had the heart issues (quadruple bypass) 13 years ago, 3 years ago an Aortic stint. I've been disabled basically all my life, caught Polio at age 2 in 1955. These past few years I've had to slow to a crawl, arthritis in my lower back has gotten pretty bad, and 60 + years huffing around on crutches has taken it's toll on my shoulders and elbows! I pretty much live in my electric chair and don't do much walking anymore.
So modeling is what keeps me sane these days. And yes I have a closet FULL of models. As a matter of fact I was just in there today re-arranging so that I can fit a few more. Seems I can't build them as fast as I can buy them. LOL But I can't seem to stop buying them!!
What's left over I hope my grandson will take interest in. He's only 5 but definitely loves cars, trucks, planes, helis, construction vehicles, emergency vehicles, basically anything that moves !!
I'm hoping to stay around long enough to teach him what I've learned and to have fun building them.
I'll bet the detail on the 24th scale kits are just awesome. I bet that Mosquito is just Bad Ass !!
I know you'll have fun with that one!! LOL Can't wait to see it.
