How many builds of the same subject do you have?
Posted by rcboater on Sunday, February 21, 2021 9:36 AM

While searching for something else, I stumbled across a 6-year old thread about how many multiples of the same subject people have in their stash.  That got me thinking.....how many have been built?

I'm currently on a 1/72 WW1 kick - doing multiple versions of the same plane to showcase the colorful schemes.  I have ten Fokker Dr.1 triplanes built, with one more under construction. (one Airfix, one Revell, 8 Eduard.)

So ten is my current high water mark, besting my old record of six 1/144 TBM Avengers for the flight deck of my RC Escort Carrier.  

Here's a shot of my seven most recent triplanes..

I think I have six Mustangs on the shelf, A through D.

OK. On the bench: Way too much to build in one lifetime...

Currently none. I did have a flock of C-47/ DC-3s for a while but am down to one right now.

A couple of unbuilt Fouga Magisters.

I did a Trumpeter 1/350 USS Lexington CV-2 with a full complement of USN aircraft on the flight deck, so roughly a dozen each SBD-2 Dauntless dive bombers, F4F-4 Wildcat fighters, and TBD-1 Devastator torpedo bombers.

In scales that I can actually see ... 8 P-40 Warhawks of different variants (all 1/48), 6 P-51 Mustangs of different variants (4 1/48, 2 1/32), 4 F4U Corsairs of different variants (2 1/48, 2 1/32), 4 F4F Wildcats (1 1/32, 3 1/48), 4 P-39 Airacobras (3 1/48, 1 1/32), 3 P-38 Lightnings, 3 F8F Bearcats (1 1/48, 2 1/72), 3 B-58 Hustlers (1 1/48, 1 1/72, 1/121), and 2 of a bunch of subjects such as the B-29, He111, A6M5, P-47, F-86, P-36, and Bf110.  Several more duplicates in the stash, including some of these listed above.

My Ju 87 collection currently stands at 8. 6 72nd.

And 1 in 32nd.

Then i have 6 Bf 109's, 5 in the true scale.

And one in the larger 32nd.

Bish, between the 87's, 109's, and 251's you can open another front.

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting a head off a Hydra, two more take it's place.

It involved an open field, lawn chairs and beers.

I have multiples of various aircraft in my stash unbuilt, but aside from a pair of F-16s & P-40s, and a trio of Me-109s I do not have multiple aircraft builds... yet. Armor is another story though. I have a whole bunch of T-34s, KVs, M4 Sherman's, Panzer IV's,  M48s, M60s, M1 Abrams, M113s, T54/55s, T-72s, BRDMs, BTRs, and BMPs built.

 

F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!

U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!

N is for NO SURVIVORS...

There should be a law agaisnt that. My favorite is the G with the big guns, but of course there are more options for the B/R versions. I'll be adding another soon, doing the Airfix 72nd B-2.

Not many.  However, I have built two Revell 1:48 Stearman, and have a third in my stash.  I also have Roden's 1:32 version in my stash.

Also, I built a half dozen Revell sprint cars, and have a couple more in my stash.
