Dude, I’ve got Verlinden pieces that are so old they’re starting to disintegrate, maybe I’ll dig one out for a picture, but as usual, I’m digressing.
There was a time for me, in the not so distant past, when I just couldn’t afford those really cool conversion kits that I wanted.
I recently was able to buy a couple as rescues, most notably Hobby Fan junk, and I was really pleased with myself for scoring them.
There’s nothing quite like the smell of diesel resin when a kit’s been sealed in Korean cellophane for 20+ years.
Building them is another thing altogether and they can be a real exercise in frustration or satisfaction, depending on how you look at it.
Ask me about a AVLM MICLIC that I test fitted everything a dozen times but didn’t realize the swing arm and bridge landing platform was completely cockeyed until final assembly and after paint…but this is fun, right?
I really dig the 3D printed kits are they are the poop, no doubt, and I also really believe they are the future of our hobby or obsession, or whatever we’re calling it this week.
Sell your stuff on evilbay, if you can stand to take the time and trouble to do it. I can’t because it’s become a giant pain in the butt these days with all the fees. They’ve got you coming and going over there.
Or sell it on here.
But, either way, I might just be the idiot that bids on/buys your stuff.
Anyhow, it looks like I’ve had way too much coffee this morning, now get back to the workshop.
