Default Who builds plastic models?

I was just wondering if any one collects or builds plastic models? I have about 350-400 models at home and have mostly 1/24-1/25 scale cars. I have built a few planes and tanks in the past, but prefer to build cars.

Here is some pictures of my collection….

I used to build plastic statics when I was in high school, but I finally got out of it. Statics for me didnt cut it for me anymore when I developed a huge admiration for RCs. I didnt even get into RCs until a few years ago primarily because of lack of money, but now that Im into it, Im sure glad I did!

I used to when i was about 8-ish or so. Used to always run up to Walmart and buy an old chevy BelleAir or so.. build em and have my friend paint em.

Fun times.

Yeah, I built the Chevy Blazer and painted it Camouflage and then weathered it with real mud. I was trying to make it look like a real Army issue CUV. I like to kit bash most of my models. It’s enjoyable…Thanks for the comments…
