NCIS/AllTheGoodNamesAreTaken, Put you in my will? All you guys would do is
fight over who wants what kit and then there goes the love.

So many planes and so little time!!! I am truley impressed. If any of you guys would have an unstarted Sig Kadet Junior or a Great Planes Super Sportster 40 Bipe kit I would be very interested in doing some talking. Both of these have a very warm place in my heart and I would like to relive some of those memories this time without the mistakes. If you have what I'm looking for e-mail me at [email protected] .

Well, interesting how the system screwed up that e-mail address. I tried to correct but the system keeps adding to the address. It should be this.

[email protected] without the roffcharlie12 yahoo part. Start with the part after the > sign.

Crikey, that is definitely the largest collection of kits owned by an individual that I've ever seen! Ron, could you post some pics of your engine collection too? I bet that will be mighty interesting too. BTW, keep those silverfish away by throwing in some mothballs into the kits.

Mike, You just gave me an idea. Maybe I should try for the Guinness Book
of World Records? Could be a new category and a sure winner, even though
it should stand for only a short time. That's the room of doom to most bugs
but the mothballs is a good suggestion.

Mr. KHodges,

What's the problem? Your wife can move to the barn.

you guys someday.

Just wanted to let you guys know that I came across a photo of someone
who may have even more kits than me. Don't ask me who as I'm not telling.
So I may not be the top dog. Maybe he will post a few photos oneday. I sure
do hope so.

Mike, As for me, you can never have to many. I just add five more in
the pass two weeks. If you get a good deal on them you can always sell
them off and get your money back.

Ron, Lotsa Nice Kits in there , a few of them I have as well! I see a few Royal kits lurking in there. Was wondering what the royal kit was above the Baron? also would it be too much to ask to see a pix of the p-68 box top?

I had to run to Fry's to buy a new wireless keyboard today from the drool as well!



I thought my collection was out of hand, I seriously have no more room, except the attic


Wow thats a serious collection!

fyredog, The P-68 is one of two Partenavia P-68 Victor kits and the kit
above the Baron is another Baron. I don't have any of the royal military
kits but I've been looking for a deal on a B-25 and a F8F.

Ron, I sold a Mint B-25 about 3 months ago and bought a beech baron to replace it. I am not sorry I did it yet, But I have seen more b-25's and less barons up for sale!

Very nice collection you have!

ORIGINAL: roncoleman

Hey I ran out of room four years ago but still manage to find
a little room for just one more kit especially if it's a real good
buy. I just can’t pass on a kit that I feel is a good deal. I did a
count of the kits I have a few months ago and if I started
building today and could get one ready to fly every two months
I would be 108 after 53+ years of building. I might need to sell
some kits. What do you guys think?
I showed that picture to my wife she stopped complaning about the seven kits I have.
Thanks...

Before I showed my Girlfriend, she was commenting about my kit collection, I said that it was nothing in comparison to roncolman's, so I showed her and told her how many kits he has. Her comment was " I don't care if you buy more kits, buy as many as you want, build as many as you want, just be sure to spend time with the family. I was at a loss for words at that point! OH BOY!!!!!

Fyredog, That's my problem, an understanding girlfriend/wife of 23 years.
She has added three kits and a helicopter to the collection over the years
also. I would do as Joe Ortiz stated or you could see if the girlfriend would
get you a kit for your birthday.
