No more model building for me. I just don't have the patience for it anymore, nor the interest, frankly. Plastic models feel too flimsy.

Several tanks and aircraft, including the 1:44 Corgi Air Force One 707, the increasingly hard to find 1:72 Corgi Sea King "Marine One" helicopter, a Mig-21 and an Su-27 with foldable wings.
The Dragon Armor series of 1:72 tanks is pretty extensive and I have a few, although I'm getting tired of seeing three dozen versions of the Panther tank.
