This may take a little more work for folks but I thought this would be really cool to see.  Here's my completed builds in a 'quick' video.  I'd love to see yours.

Here's the link for full screen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDtsNAaa9ug

Thanks,

John

Hey, John -

Great video of your work, the Brewster and the Constellation, (I think it was called an EC121 maybe?) are real standouts. Thanks for the show, I liked it.

Nice wide ranging collection!  Was that Drake with his smartgun at the beginning?  Oh wait, is it a dude with a Stinger launcher?

Nice wide ranging collection!

I had the same thought. It truly is.

That was a good idea, John. Haven't seen that done in my years here. Nice work! Yes

Very nice builds!

I've never been able to get figures to look good! Yours are great.

 

I don't have a video, but I can post some photos.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most of the Star Trek props were built from kits or from scratch.

Very interesting collection John, and a great idea for a thread. Of the many outstanding builds my personal favorite is the S2F to Cal Fire conversion. Seeing the model again reminds me of how much I enjoyed following the WIP.

Mach71, you have a veritable arsenal full of Federation phasers!

I don't have any videos of my dust collection, but here are a few photos taken when the glass shelves were relatively clean.

I used to collect 1/6 scale military figures, as well as some from movie properties, but they started getting expensive so I had to stop.

Here's my most Politically Incorrect figure in my collection.

Some might raise serious questions about why a grown man would have a Hitler doll in his house, but it was all for fun.  I stumbled across a whole pallet of these in a Tokyo hobby shop and thought it was in such hysterically bad taste that I bought one.  The vacuum was a separate accessory, added to "clean up the Reich".

I should bulid the weapons locker from "The Galileo 7" to store my phasers.

 

Real G, 

You have a nice collection! I love the SV and the Hunley, but Hitler vacuming is just Bat bleep crazy!

Well done sir, well done.

Nice!  Glass shelves look great.  What a collection!   What scale?  Particularly the f82.  I have a 1/48 kit but dont care for the markings.   

Thanks,

John

The top 2 shelves are 48th. Bottom 2 are 72nd.

The F-82 is the old 72nd Monogram kit done as a whiffer.

Here’s my small collection. A lot of these were built a a few years break so they aren’t award winners or anything. For those wondering why some tanks have open hatches without figures, I’m working on painting them right now.

I custom built the cabinet to fit the glass shelves that I bought from a store going out of business
