In the loft, about a quarter of the eaves are shelved - 2 inch by 1 inch slates screwed to the a-frames of the roof timbers supporting hardboard. I have lost count of the models up there - about 25 1/48 Phantoms, 2 Lightnings - and the 1/72 Kittyhawk I got in my Christmas sack when I was 6 (dad made it!) - and that is 49 years old this December. Over the last 6 months I have found a ready market on E-bay for completed models; I have just sold 6 Tornados, 3 hawks, 3 F-16s, an A-10 (1/48) and 3 Starfighters. They were just slowly gathering dust, were out of sight out of mind - and the proceeds make me feel less guilty when I'm bidding on stuff on e-bay because I'm simply recycling the money back into the hobby.
