    Some of my stash

    Here's a few of mine.
    I've stopped building so much these days. The old eyesights not what it used to be. I'm enjoying collecting kits now. Airfix are a favorite, but most of that won't fit in here. More in keeping with this place is some of these.
    Monogram kits have always been right up my street. Quality plastic!
    Here's a built original 1:8 scale 32 Roadster. These were available in red or yellow. The finish on the plastic is so good they don't really need painting.



    Monogram also did a Big T, here's another unpainted first issue next to its box. Lovely kits.



    Its good to build up displays of the kits with the original boxes and a few other matching bits and bobs.
    Ebay is great for finding stuff like this.


    Hawks Weird Oh's and Silly Surfers are another sort of kit I like.
    Here's a couple of the Silly Surfers. About a dozen parts, then its out with the brightest paints in the box...




    More as I find them
    Tony.

    Hawk have re issued the Weird Oh's and the Silly Surfers. The boxes are nearly the same as the originals and the prices aren't too bad.
    They are usually on ebay and a few model sellers in the UK hold them.

    Hey' Tony love that silly surfer in the middle HANGIN' TEN ! Cool. I used to have the monogram 32 roadster but mine was in black. I know what you mean about the quality compared to other plastic kits. I gave up with the plastic kit's because they get broken so easily by women and their duster's DAVE.

    I'm impressed with the variety of collections cropping up here, all kinds of different stuff. Keep 'em coming.

    Here's a few more of mine. not so many built kits, I'm more of a collector these days.



    These Monogram Midget Racers show what kind of mileage Monogram got from their molds. Loads of different boxes over the years with the same kit inside.
    The kit was re released in a retro box a while back and can lead to a bit of confusion if you are looking for original stuff. Dead handy if you want to build them though.



    All the major US players had Surf kits in their ranges. Here's a couple of examples. Great artwork on all of them.



    Kits in the sixties were aimed squarely at kids, as these slightly barmy boxes show.



    Another area I really like is Dealer Displays. Monogram did some of the best. They fetch a pile of cash when they show up.
    The best one I have is this vintage Cadillac Coupe one. I got it off ebay years ago. Its probably the best Model related item I have.
