    Yeah, I build mostly 1/72 or Ho/oo scale WW2's. I don't have space for bigger. I find when I can't be mobile it takes so much concentration painting and detailing that time passes quickly - very addictive.
    Got enough stashed away to refight d day several times over. Have you started modifying the basic kits yet? you can get upgraded parts, or remodel it yourself. I have a WW2 motor torpedo boat came with parts missing, so I rebuilt it with plastic card etc as a battle damaged version.
    I have some pics of my WW2 Flower class Corvette, MTB's and RAF rescue launches but can't find it.
    I'll attach a pic of the display at RAF Cosford, I'd love to have the space to set something like this up!

    Crikey Grumpy - that came up, and I looked at the pic first.

    For a few seconds I thought you were going to say it was your collection !

    I have a few of mine in the Norwich Air Museum, that were at RAF Coltishall till it closed

    Lol I have most of the kits made up to do something like this, just not the space to display. At ols house I had a 4m square room, here I'm down to 7ftx4ft.
    I love looking at the models at Cosford, they're all around the walls there as well.
