    Very nicely done.

    Yes I still buy the odd kit, mostly sci fi based but I haven't built one in a few years. I don't have the space to display them so unbuilt many remain or in storage boxes.

    Yes display space is an issue for me too , also the fact that a display case for the huge pocher sized model cost around £200 !!
    Good to hear others sharing my enthusiasm for the hobby .
    Cheers

    Used to build a lot of the Star Trek AMT/Ertle Star Trek ship models back in the day.
    Had a ‘Fleet’ of them displayed in my first house. :j

    Various parts of kits lying around in cupboards etc, but still have this on show in the office at home, more for nostalga reasons I guess.

    *Stick a pic or 2 up later....damn Photobucket.

    Nicely done. Its mostly in the painting to take it from a nice model to looking like someone miniaturised the real thing.

    I started off, very many years ago with Aurora monster and sci fi kits, then the AMT, Monogram kits. Built planes, tanks and ships as well, but the spaceship kits those are the ones I particularly liked.
