Default Over the 600 mark

The Go-Getter Collection now has over 600 models in it all 1:200 scale. The database is at 602 but there are a few that need to be added. Good thing I have a huge basement.

Bill

That's impressive, sir! I recall pics of your collection you posted here a year or so... a very nice collection indeed, and something to be proud of.

Good gosh Russ, that's more models than I have.... in one shipment. I should intercept the package enroute and change the address...... to one in Texas.

Well, maybe by the time I'm an old fogey (and graduate from college and have a real job that can afford me more models), I'll be able to rival you high rollers.

I just passed the 100 mark... For a five years I guess that's no too bad. In the last 12 months it's grown from about 25 to 100+, so it's a bad sign that I'm hooked. I can only dream of hitting the 600 mark (and so can my bank account).

We sure do. However, my collection seems insignificant compared to yours.

Collection envy.

When my wife complains, I just show the thread that I have marked where it shows Cronwics collection and say I am not that addicted.

But then she gets back me to by saying and you can't even afford a swimming pool on our house, oh wait, we can't even afford a house of our own!! You a**ole go and live with your planes in your car! But my kids, particulary the 5 year old one, are as excited as I am when we recieve the shipment.

You both have very nice collection and we can just drool sometimes. Nice one guys.
