    I don't have a "To Do" list. I just do what I want to do when I want to do what I want to do at the time I want to do something I want to do. 8v)

    Ah, I am not alone! Thank goodness for that. And I am REALLY impressed with Masamune, you put your list in alphabetical order. Cool! I was going to do that with mine, but I got distracted....

    Mine is on spreadsheets, and I quickly censored several hundred lines of stuff that many wouldn't understand or just make me appear outright odd.
    That's just from the "Subject" column from the spreadsheet, excluding source/series, and other data. ...And from the spreadsheet of models that I keep in open reference to search and archive data for, not the spreadsheet of debatable subjects I keep to track more possibilities. :roll:

    Masamune already topped my list, but I don't count titles, I count CDs filled with models I plan to build. I'm up to 14 or 15 cds by now, at 690 Megs apiece, thats more than I will ever finish...no, wait, there's also the Fiddlers Green Mega-CDs, and several gaming model sets from Worldworks Games (their pirate ship, tropical island set, modular starship and Arena set).

    In hardcopy I've got the Kinneret Boat (the 'Jesus Boat' found on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, dated to the time of Christ), a simple Carrack from a museum shop, and the zeppelin LZ-45.

    If you want that measure I've used a 100count spindle of CD-Rs, and about half went to archiving model related data. :oops:

    Just a short history to my "to-do" models.

    The first is when I was very young and really bitten with the model making bug I was poor as a doormouse but it never stopped me taking a bus to the nearest large suburban shops(1960's) and I would go to the largest hobby shop and just window shop through the models and dream of what I would buy. This has stayed with me through my life.

    Now I have many CD's full of models from years of collecting and a wide range of "paid for" model to go with this as well. Now I have slowed down and just collect on the Net, but it's what I consider "significant" contributions.

    The conclusion is I now saviour the thrill of letting the "little kid in me loose" going over all the models in all my backup model files, just like looking up at those shelves long ago and just taking **anything what I want now** that all those years ago I could only look at.

    It's not a sob story, I worked hard and I own what is around me and I have 5 beautiful kids. It's the gift I get in return for that work.

    Hehe ... for me middle age and patience has it's perks.

    Who else has and does this I wonder ?

    I guess it is more popular format in Europe and is easier for shipping.

    A4 is the standard size in Europe and is competively priced. Anyone know of a good A4 Bristol or Cover stock supplier in North America?

    God has my to do list so go figure...,

    Dimas, I checked with my shrink and she says it's not an obsession unless you are buying card models instead of food - :?

    Yes, I just ordered an SSW D-III and a Pfalz D-IIIa instead of buying dinner - <heavy sigh>

    Another injection of fresh kits

    Hi all,
    Here is a new batch of models I got from Pawel, publisher of Orlik models.
    He kindly ordered P 36, and I -180 from ModelArt/Answer as well as Arado from Modelik and included them in the package.

    All in all I paid about 80 dollars for 10 models including shipping charges. I think this is considerable better then ordering from SPI Shop for example. A rough calculation showed that same order would cost $113 US dollars.

    Now about the kits: All kits have awesome outstanding print quality. The only problem is pages of P 36 were cut to close to the print, so inspect your models carefully.
    As far as Orlik kits, Kamov is the one must have! As well as Comet. The Comet features a little tractor -tower as well as other accessories. Brigit red camo really stands out.

    One of my favorites is I 180, it a rare model and is done in metallic print. It looks very simple to build and has a good detailing.

    With respect to Pe 2, I would say that Modelik Kit is little bit more exciting as far as the camo goes. However, the winner is definitely Pe- 3 from OREL in winter camo.

    I also really liked P 36, nice detailing, bright colors and a rare model as well.

    Well, I think it is enough for now. As I get more organized in my hew home, I will try to write more reviews.
