I have read on Facebook modelling groups about the ‘stash’ syndrome.
A stash is the pile of models waiting to be built. I have 49. This may sound like a lot, and I did wonder that myself. Then I saw people with hundreds of kits in their stash and, in a few cases 2-3,000! How can you possibly build that many in a lifetime?
Here are some answers I have read:-
- He who dies with the most models wins!
- My biggest fear is that when I die, my wife will sell my stash for what I told her I paid for them.
- But I need 16 different versions of the same kit!
This all makes me feel much better about my modest efforts, and I no longer feel inadequate. 😉
