I was drooling over the photos until it hit me who was posting them. The funny part, Robin, is that few of these folks realize the photos don't show everything. For example, where's the Pack Howitzer? If you ever have an open house, let me know, I might just be motivated to make that southbound trip to see all that in one place (especially the bazookas)! Hope to see you this weekend at the Tacoma show!

Robin,

 

Fantastic collection. I'd like to make my appointment now if thats OK? thumbsup.gif

 

Are those Avon boxes you have your stuff packed in?

Yes, they are. My Mother is an Avon Lady. Those boxes stack well and hold up really good. The bottom row has a lot of wieght on it, and none have ever collapsed.

I love many things and am particularly impressed by all those crates for M1 ammo bandoleers. Will wait till you show all of them in details (markings etc) :blink: If you get time of course.

My wife spent the whole day painting the downstairs walls today. She's quite the trooper, and I owe a lot to her.

She's probably helping to move the stuff out of her house a little bit faster and get back her family room. :lol: Of course I'm just joking, my wife is really behind me on my collecting bug also. Thumbs-up to the painter! thumbsup.gif

Simply amazing Robin. Once your war building is complete, people will have a hard time believing that this is privately owned.

 

What is your personal strategy collectionwise?

 

By the way, have you discussed with your wife on who will do the maintenance of that massive building??

 

Regards,

 

Stijn
