Life has a way to get in the way of a hobby




My wife told me that  my stash  was in the  way when  she wanted  to  clean  my workplace. I wholeheartedly  agreed and I decided  to  put  them  back  in the store room where  I  keep  my four cats’ litter boxes.

So everyday  when  I  scoop up, I look up at my stash  and get nostalgic  about  model  building.

How  in the  world  can I manage  to  build  them all? I  have so many I like…

Like the B-24.

got two. The B-24 D and the B-24 J.

They have been sitting  in their box since God knows when.

What about these  two favourite  of mine.


This one I built  in 1976 when  I  visited  the Smithsonian in Washington  DC.


There I go again getting nostalgic about my first year of marriage which is still going strong.

39 years ago…

40 years next June 5th.

June 5th? Wasn’t that the start of the Battle of Midway…

  1. I think we all have a stash of kits….but there are probably a few we wish we had–you know, the ones we keep hoping we will stumble across unopened at a garage sale. Oh well, you’ve got an impressive collection of kits to keep you busy.

  2. I don’t think you should ever worry about building your stash. If you do that then your stash will be gone. I’ll never build my stash and I’ve already informed my wife to donate them to a museum when I pass on. Stashes are our dreams. I say keep adding to it!
