Does a loft count?

okay, So while i'm the topic of transparency.... Here is my loft space (well less of the space).
it looks small but its not bad size of a UK house - it's got a floor plan of around 4 x 5m (sadly, I dont have three containers in my ample Australasian Paddock of a garden :mrgreen: :mrgreen: ) - its just full of **** ! (its only half mine) ;)

Though the back room/study/dump istn much better - the other rooms in the house are less crowded (but they are the rooms the the public see :D )

I managed to get through 420 Litres of transparent storage boxes (aka 10 big boxes) before being overwhelmed (its probably not even 20% of the collection up there) . If the other half hadnt gobe away with the car I was serisouly tempted to take all though old TV & appliances boxes down the tip (refuse dump). the collection is hidden around the side, typically being two crates deep and two crates high in the roof eaves - then her and other house stuff has accumulated in the centre void.

I would offer prizes and incentives for people to come and help sort it all out, but unless your race of tiny space aliens there is no longer room for two people! its basically a 3D Tile puzzle and I'm standing in the space :D

It wasn't all bad... i did find a box of resin kits (CMR DC-2, those Boegin 306 and B-17 donor kits), vac-formed kits and the like, plus some project flieger, takara WTM and fantastic weapons, Panzer Korp kits boxes and oddly (though i didnt open it) cardboard box marked 1/700. Plus, a box of assorted Japanese sci-fi kits)


However none of the Dameya Piper Cubs or Auster by Foxone (not even the crates containing them - they are boxed based upon thematic / manufacture)



So, for all of you who have been waiting for me to get in the loft and find some kits - here is the nature of the problems

MY solution to help would be if you can't put a box somewhere and you haven't opened it in a year or two then it isn't really something dear to your heart and so sell the contents! :lol:

Move some of those boxes and I reckon you'll find Harry Potter. And I admit to zooming in on that "Naked" box to see what it was all about ... :P

Ah, maybe that's what I should do.
Set some tents up in the garden and get some of you over to sort the loft.

While we at it, anyone good at DIY/Home maintenance...

I've just put up a new ceiling, door linings, wood floor, loft trap and lighting in our hallway. Oh and done the concrete slab for the new greenhouse. Best of all I am brilliant at sorting through boxes of models. Rather than a tent is there a nice B and B nearby?
