That’s the number of kits I have on the model shelves.
I needed to condense the models on the shelves so that I could get more on them. They were also sharing the space with a lot of cat fur and dust so I decided to take the slew of them down, clean them and the shelves, and put them back on the shelves.
I took these photos of the lot parked on the dining room table, cleaned waiting for clean shelves. I was happy didn’t need to toss any of them.
I built these over about 12 years. I have one in here that is about 25 years old and a complete set of Monogram 1/48 Century Series fighters.
Now that I’ve parked the Constitution for a few weeks..
Inspired by a fellow blogger, who builds multiple kits at the same time, sometimes in the middle of a move, I’ve decided to build at the same time a couple of kits I’ve wanted to build for a while; the Monogram P-61 and a 1/48 Hasegawa Bf-109e in desert markings.
I’ve had the P-61 next to forever. So long in fact the parts are dusty in the box (how do model parts get dusty in a box?) I will use the Lone Star Model P-61 cockpit kit with this. I have wanted a P-61 in the collection for awhile and I have a lot of things to try on this kit; salt weathering, faded black painting, oil dot filter wash on black, etc.
The Bf-109e is a Hasegawa builder I bought off of eBay along with a Verlinden set that was missing the photo etch when I purchased it. I’m going to challenge myself to make up for the lack of photo etch and do some modeling using the resin parts.
