Er, put it like this guys :
The NICEST model airplane shop I have visited in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD is Willy Owen's establishment in Bray, Republic of Ireland. No bull, I really mean it.
He advertises it as 'the biggest model shop in Ireland'. He's probably right.
The last time I was there I mentally totted up how many kits he had in his shop and came to the conclusion that I had more models and kits in my cellar than he had in his shop.
Like my problem is walking thorough the aisles at Toledo 30 minutes before closing time on the Sunday and the nice guy from Balsa USA implores me to buy his last Stik 40 kit for $29 so he doesn't have to cart it back to the truck. Oh, and as I was so nice he'll do me a real special deal on a Bristol Monoplane kit.
About 10 years of that kind of weakness and your cellar will look like mine.
PS - I had to write an Excel file to remember what I have and where it is !!
Umm, this is gonna hurt... (updates after my last flying/crashing session.)
(This list is electrics only in flyable status, no sailplanes or glow which taken together may be a longer list than this- I'm afraid to count. But the electric stuff is getting flown more than 10X as often anyhow. Time for more conversions.)
A7 ducted fan (RIP- rest in pieces)
In flight testing- Super Snooper (continuing- needs more power- trying bigger prop)
Nearly done- Buzzard Bombshell. (now ready to go.)
No BARFs for me- the A7 doesn't count- there was plenty of building to do.
I've started thinking about another Multiplex Cockpit- I filled up the model memories on my first one and I don't want to have to fire up the computer when I go flying.
And yes, I'm another one who could open a well stocked hobby shop based on the kits I have lying around. On the other hand, I only started doing electrics a little over 2 years ago....maybe I should join EA (electrics anonymous)?
