Sprue Cutter’s Union #10

This week’s Sprue Cutter’s topic is an interesting one.

– What are your spending habits? –

Mine have changed over time.  When I was single, with plenty of time, I was a voracious purchaser of hobby kits and related items.  As I’ve gotten older and the stash has grown, my purchases have grown more restrained.  Given that I have nearly 1000 kits, more than I can build in a lifetime, new stuff doesn’t hold quite the same attraction.  Now that doesn’t mean I’ve given up buying kits.  I estimate that I have bought 15-20 new kits this year.  Most have been lower priced Airfix kits.  (BTW, the new Airfix 72nd kits are the best deal in the hobby right now.)

In fact kits aren’t really the biggest part of my hobby purchases.  Books and magazines are.  My wife has said that I am a librarian with a model collection on the side.  Hobby magazines.  Now there is a Sprue Cutter’s topic for the future.

Our leader.

Yet Another Scale Modeller


  1. I can completely relate to your post, almost word-for-word (except your stash is bigger than mine…) You’re right about the new Airfix releases, they’re nice kits at a great priice – I need to pick up a Gladiator next.
