Beautiful collection. I do hope all the models go to a new good home together.

Fixed it for Martin.

Totally agree regarding the collection. Predominantly 1/72 but we'll let him off on that score. And geez, if I'm just alive at 85, I'll be a happy camper. Actually, I'll probably be a grumpy old codger with the memory of a sieve ... :?

Ask my ex. Apparently, I became one in my early 40's. Now just refining my cantankerous, ill-tempered traits. :oops:
