    I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

    Okay - another silly question but - Iv only been back in the game for a matter of a few months but I have already managed to collect 8 models with another two builds on the cards before next season. Basically im running out of space quick and the misses is starting to bend my ear!
    Just wondering how many models people have got and in general do you stockpile your models or fly them for a season or two and then swap them for different ones?
    Failing that - anyone got any fantastic storage solutions they want to pass on? I already have models and wings hanging from the ceiling, and fuses stood against the workshop wall! I want to aspire to bigger models in the future, but short of building an extension I dont know where they could live! scratch

    I try to keep them out of the bosses line of sight in my shed, although I did build mine for that purpose, one of the most important things to consider is to stop them getting cold & damp & remove the receiver battery from the airframe or at least disconnect it from the switch or receiver, if the battery is left connected it is likely to cause what's called black wire syndrome if the wires/battery are left exposed to cold & moisture, this kills models.

    So in summary, build a bigger shed/workshop, you can hide in there as well when the going gets tough.

    In Macclesfield, We had a 4 bed det with attached double length (32' long) 12' 6" wide garage. I filled that with motorbikes models and workshop and spread into the house. Shared the house with Mrs Q, Lowrey Organ and the 4 junior PDQ's who all eventually moved out as they matured.
    The hunt for a smaller house to retire to with better weather (Its always cloudy in Macclsfield) spread to North Wales.
    Difficult to find something big enough to house Doff, Me all my stuff but eventually we found a 2 bed bungalow at the seaside which had been converted to 5 bed and amazingly a massive wooden shed with benches, cupboards, power, lighting and a utility room in the 70' garden. Wonderful.
    As before, I keep anything valuable or sensitive to moisture in the house. The shed roof does leak and to overcome that problem, temporarily !!, I installed two lockup large weatherproof plastic sheds in the main shed.
    Not perfect but near OK.
    So I suggest you have a look in B & Q on a Wednesday

    Lol! Generally, if one includes everything, I have around 10 - 12 models in flying condition at any one time plus any new builds or models awaiting repair...

    I keep most of them in the garage, which is also the workshop, sitting on shelves, others hang by their wheels from partially open drawers and some just lean against the wall. One is resting on its spinner on top of the freezer! Etc, etc

    I also have half a dozen or so in the loft. These are mainly larger unfinished projects or airframes that have been very honourably retired and I cannot bear to throw away!

    But shelves are good! Wide shelves 600 mm or more ideally and put up close to the ceiling out of the way

    I always keep my favorite models in my bedroom.

    Where do you store your models? Storage002

    The models that I don't use much get relegated to the shed,any rare or limited edition models stay boxed in the attic.
    I'm starting to need more shelves now though. Smile

    Can you imagine the consequence of one of those shelf brackets collapsing?!!!

    I keep my funjet in the back of the van (Never know when it might see a bit of air) and the rest of the models in my garage, stacked in the rafters usually...

    Thanks Rich,the truck's tractor is behind the f350,and the trailer is on it's own little shelf.
    I'll have to bring it to the indoor sometime for a trundle round.It's not been used for a while.
