Do you have several of the same model in different paint schemes?

Hi Guys,
I love the Parkzone T-28 plane and have the original red/white scheme and another that I repainted yellow. Now, I'm thinking of buying the latest version of this plane in the Air Force silver/blue scheme. (I painted the yellow plane before I knew they were coming out with the Air Force version...if only I had known).

Am I crazy or what? I'm into HO scale model railroading and have several paint schemes of the same model...I guess when I like a model, I like it in different paint schemes. Are any of you guys like me, in this respect?

In the case of the Parkzone T-28, it helps that the model is a great size, is dependable (I have over 200 flights on the red/white one) and flies beautifully. Of the 5 warplanes that I have, I don't think any other plane is as stable in the air as the T-28 (maybe my E-Flite P-47 Thunderbolt).

I'd love to hear any comments you may have.

I have 2 of the new P-51 BL planes in different schemes and would love to do a third. Honestly, you only live once so I say why not have whatever you can afford!

I hear ya but at least you're getting the model in different sizes and from different manufacturers. I'm talking about the same model from the same manufacturer. Is that the same thing?

Thanks for the reminder....I keep telling my buddy, who is 68 years old, that he better start having fun because we're all going to die soon. And think about it, whether soon is 10 years, 20 years or more, it's not that far away.
