Need spare time... by kanyiko Need spare time... by kanyiko

... or a less time-consuming hobby.

This veritable mountain of model kits is that heap of kits which I am still to build...

Yeah, I can already hear you think it. I most definitely need a life... ^^;

...

Addendum: kits finished on December 30, 2006:

Airco DH4
Convair F-106A Delta Dart

I wish I had Airfix´s Airco DH4 and one of the two Fireflies! But I share the same problem with you: lack of time... and of room. I must have around 100 models to build (yes, no joking) to join the other 100 ones I have already done, some of which can be seen in one of my folders here... I have more models to do than room left to display them if all were done. But I´m just a fanatic of this hobby, so glad to have found someone who seems to share it with me ;) Go on with it! ;D

You need a spare space, not time.

Of those I also have Revell's Me Bf109, Me-262 and F4U-5, though only the first is assembled. The rest, along with Spad XIII C-1 was spared for my project of jet biplane.

You heard right, jet biplane.

... you might be right there. ^^;

By the way, jet biplanes - it has been done for real. The Poles built one in the '70s: the PZL-Mielec M-15 "Belphegor", with 175 built. Not the biggest success in aviation ever, though.

Yeah, but I want it to look like Me-262 if it was build in 1920s :) Basically a Spad with Me-262 jet engines, makeshift cockpit and some other adds. I chose it a name, R-XI Polonez, because I got really interested in R-XIII Lublin recently.

Don't expect anything cool, I'm still at basic level of modeling.

Even so, it's a very cool idea in itself! :)

Do you have any models by Zvezda?

Mostly repackaged and rebranded ones. I know I have the MiG-3, La-5FN and SU-22 (repackaged Revell), and the MiG-23 (repackaged Italeri); there might be some others as well (I can't say it directly off the top of my head). For some odd reason, we couldn't get Zvezda directly for a long time (probably because Italeri reboxed them for our market), while at the same time we were overrun by Kovozavody Prostejov-kits. Nowadays, though, it's very much the opposite.

Do you have Russian helicopters?

I've got three of those, a Mil Mi-8T, a Mil Mi-24, and a Kamov Ka-25T - none of them built yet. I am working on two MiGs at the moment, though: Airfix' new MiG-15, and Revell's MiG-21F-13.

Have you got Ka-50 Black Shark? IMHO this is the most beautiful attack helicopter

Still exists - and seems to be issuing better kits by the year.

The sad thing is, it's not so much the model manufacturers that are disappearing (there seem to be more now than ever before), but the shops that actually sell them... :(

Well, it happens quicker than you'd realise... I mean, I bought a few kits, took a bit longer than I thought I would on some, and hup... ;p

Finally got to my holidays, though, so I've finally begun my attempt at reducing the heap... ^_^

Thanks...!! ^_^

But those are only (part of) the kits I either haven't finished or even begun yet...

Don't know when I'm going to do the Abrams, though. It's quite a big tank, ya know - even in 1/35 scale...
