Scores and Collections

One great part about collecting something is going on the hut for what you love. Sometimes, if I’m really lucky, I can find a bunch of things all at once. This happens a lot at things like flea markets and estate sales. Someone’s collection will be up for sale and it, or at least a part of it, will catch my attention.  In cases like this, I make a big score – a tonne of cool things at once.

Another great thing about collecting is when I manage to build up a collection of interesting, similar things through years of hard work. Usually, I don’t notice that I even have a collection until I stop and think about it. I will then take the time to get the items of interest all together so I can look at them in the context of each other.

That’s what this page is for: to just have a place where a lot of weird, intersesting or similar things can all be seen together. Sometimes, one oddball kit is neat, but a gaggle of them is really kind of fun.

 Farpro Collection 001

Farpro Japan kits: Aoshima’s export kits for North America. Horribly classic!

2015-03-07 Dragonar Score (3)

1/144 Dragonar Kits: Straight out of the 1980s comes the collection of Dragonar kits. The show is a bit obscure, but it’s a good watch and the kits are something different!

 Fail Car boxes 006

MPC Cars: The kings of the “everyday loser” car kit, MPC made some great kits of questionable and interesting cars.

 Matchbox Armour 003

Matchbox Armour: Great little kits from yesterday, all in the awkward 1/76 scale we know and love!

 

Gundam Mid-Year Campaign 2015: This is the HGBuild Fighters Try Special Set; one of only 82 in the world to be won. Check out my “Major Award”!

Matchbox Aircaft – “Sunset Stripe” Boxes: Here’s a cross section of some Matchbox airplanes in the snappy “sunset boxes” from the early ’80s!
