Default Out of Space

Uhm... I have models on my dresser, my china cabinet, my wine fridge, my cocktail table, and now finally on my kitchen counter.

I think we have a problem.

Time to narrow down your collecting criteria. I had to, since I was running out of space.

I ran out of space a year ago! I've slowed down with my purchases, but I have not stopped. I have also sold off a few but the in-coming is still more than the out-going.

Rut RO! Time to learn how to occasionally rotate the collection!

I was just reading the definition between collecting and hoarding. Apparently there are 5 levels of hoarding and your at the first level (level one), level 5 is the worst!

Time to switch scales if you can't get a bigger place like Russ suggested. Keep the 1:200 ones flown on move the rest and get 1:400 for the ones you like.

Three words;

Waffle's Collection Sale!

That helped me rationalize my collection, clear out some space, and hopefully helped some people snap up some things they missed.
