I'm a hoarder I keep everything and I see shapes in objects that i have in the stash.

The stash increased massively over the last 3-4 years just be keeping a look out on ebay and facebook, buying as cheap as I can even if it's part started or broken / incomplete kits i'm buying them for parts so it doesn't always matter.

The Airfix Saturn V Skylab is a great source of parts (I've had 8 of them over the last few years) the relay station was mostly made using this kit because i scored 3 of them cheaply just before christmas.

The first step is find a plan of what I want to build and print it out to scale and then look through the parts to see if there is anything that works or can be adapted from this lot

with the DY-500 I found the nose of the Ariane 5 from Revell 1/96 was a good fit, bits of a 1/144 space station and Saturn 5 and a leftover tail of a submarine



WOW, Dream shelf!!!! ooh... I'll take one of those on the left, and that center one too! now, if you can spare that over there, I've always wanted to try that one.

-you know, if you need to declutter or anything ;)

"Botany bay... botany bay?! oh no..." :D

then, its not like 100 Khan Noonien Singhs,
its more like a 1000 or so. :shock:

Thanks dude

It's huge compared to the DY-100 it would be nice to have one to put next to it to show but then there is a massive list of kits I would like this year
