    I've been building all my life, but I've only been keeping track of what I've built for the last 20 years. Here's the official text list with links to the models:
    http://www.inpayne.com/models/models_history.html

    Since about 2013 I've been doing group shots of each year's builds. So since I need creative stuff to do during retirement, I did new group shots of the previous years (and some montages when I got lazy).

    This also brings up a disturbing statistic - in 20 years I've only built 300 models. I have at least three THOUSAND unbuilt kits in my stash, and I'm going on 65. I ain't gonna make it! :lol:

    I got the model bug back in 2002 and met you at that time (virtually speaking). You advised me to pick up an Arado E.555. Still have it in my stash. Everything else just about cleaned out. I gave it all to Model Roundup (local online seller, you should see his stash) in 2016 before moving to a smaller house. Too many house projects. This one is sorta like a kitbash and I always did have a thing for interiors. Still have an Aurora FS to finish. Someday... some fine day...

    I'm the same way with books and movies. I do the arithmetic and realize that some of them I'm likely to never get to. :bergman:
