Just got the recent FineScale magazine. One of the letters to the editor commented on the relative lack of 1/72 scale articles. This got me wondering a few things.
- What kind of scales do you build?
I stick almost exclusively to 1/72. Partly for space, but mostly for the lower cost (although that is quickly changing as I see more "profipacks" in this scale with prices getting near $30).
- Related, do you build "collections" or are you eclectic as it were?
Again, for myself, I am trying to collect WWI aircraft from all nations in1/72nd scale (the Italians and French seem relatively poorly represented). I also want to collect major planes from most/all of the contenders in WWII (hopefully including most/all variations).
Otherwise, I collect 1/72 ground equipment and troops for dioramas and general fun (read as: relive mis-spent youth).
- Finally, do you -do- resin? I've tried and just purely dislike it, recognize the nice detail, but just can't stand it anyway.
Anyway, just curious about how "mainstream," or not I am in my habits.
