    I don't really have any idea where to put this, so if a Mod feels it should go somewhere else, by all means!

    Everyone has a favorite subject, plane, or era or whatever, so I'm just wondering what makes up most of people's collections? I was looking at the planes I'd built yesterday, and realized something: all but 5 of the models I've built are either Navy/Marines, or are Luftwaffe. I knew I was pretty narrow when it came to that stuff, but I didn't realize I was that bad! :lol:

    My main subjects are RNZAF and Luftwaffe '39-45, so the majority fit into these categories.

    Most of one type? Focke-Wulf Fw 190/ Ta 152 series (12 or 13 kits I think!), and Spitfires (about 10 or 11)...

    Mine are mostly WW2, covering RAF, USAAF and Luftwaffe, all ETO, except a MTO Beau, with one RN Avenger, Far East.
    The rest are a couple of jets, from Korea to the late 1980's. Of those built, there are multiples of some types, some in one scale, others in both 1/48th and 1/32nd, with a single 1/24th scale. To be built, there'll be examples in the 56 Sqn builds from World War One to late 1990's.
    Additionally, therer are around a dozen 1/35th scale mliitary vehicles/tanks, mostly German, France 1944, and a small number of larger scale 'modern' vehicles.

    I understand, up until I started building again when I joined here, of the 40+ models I had built as a lad, they were all either US fighter/bombers or German bombers except for a single British Lysander I had built and I really have no idea why. Really odd actually.

    I'm a fan of fighter machines so most of kits I have are of the category.

    Most of my stuff is German even the WWI stuff. When I have people visit, they sometimes don't understand why - sometimes neither do I. Actually had one person thought I was a Nazi.

    Now almost exclusively WW2, mostly fighters, all ETO and all 1/48. I had a huge collection when I was a teen and in my 20's but it all got chucked when I moved house across the country. A few surviving jets exist, like my finished Phantom and unbuilt F-18 and an F-5E which I'm thinking to convert to a CF-5A, if possible. Also somewhere in my crawlspace there are some scratch built tanks I did when I was a kid, a Tamiya Panther and a 88mm Flak gun.

    Haha, have at least ten models, 99 percent World War II aircraft, 1 percent Cold War. And all of them have gone through some minor or serious damage. After building them. :lol: :lol:

    My collection is 99% WWII. I pretty much have one of each type for which I aimed to get, except I have two P-61s, 2 P-38s, and 2 B-24s. Only one built of each of those at this time, though. :)
