Would You Buy 2 Of The Same Model?

: Especially if it was over $50.00?.My think is build the 1st : one,then,when you start the 2nd,you can refine it. : I have got two of the Dora 80cm railroad guns.
Does that answer your question? Bruce

Er, Bruce, the guy who sold you those hasn't received a subpoena with the work "Co-Respondent" on it, has he? 8-)

i have several each of the lindberg german stuff. mostly 1/72 but not all. i've built and will build 10 versions of the do335 using lindberg kits, but i sure don't build many muliples of 50 buck kits.

A trade well worth it! - my daughter just graduated from college; Summa cum Laude with 5 years done in 4!! Proud! You bet! Neither the wife or I did 4-years in any time, btw.

In some circumstances, I would, but not at those prices. I ocne built a whole fleet of Trek style starships, each kitnashed from the original. ANd I've got a squadron of StarFuries, each a tiny bit different from each other.

With over 16,000 different 1/72 aircraft kits out there I have yet to intentionally buy more than one of any kit. Buying something that I already have on too many occasions is what led to ESM 72. Now I just consult the check list.
Still, sometimes I pick up a duplicate. At club auctions I can't pass up a really good price. These go to trades and the neighborhood kids. Also happens at garage sales, etc.
In my case the "duplicates" are the same aircraft from different manufacturers. I'm doing an Avia S-199 and a P-40N. I have all of the S-199 kits and most of the P-40Ns plus most of the after market stuff for both. It builds up as the wallet gets lighter.With about 2000 unbuilts new purchases are getting more and more infrequent.

I knew one guy who would always buy 3. One to build right away, the second for parts he screwed up on number 1, and the third to build now that he was sure what he was doing. (Guy was a job shopper working 84 hour weeks at full time and a half and double time rates as applicable - and shoppers were highly paid to begin with ).
Ive bought two of many such as the promodeler series for similar reasons - insurance to get one good build. Especially since I tend to get involved in work etc and the build may occur when the kit is out of production.

I've got Lots of Kits that I have more than One of. I have 4 of the Older Tamiya ''King Tiger'' Tank Kits and then there's the 12 or so Motor cycles w/ Side Cars then the 8 boxes with Two single Bikes each. Then all of those ''Katusha'' Rocket Launchers I bought which Squadron had dumped out real cheap a few years back
Then all of the various 1/48 Me-262's i've got in my home I have atleast 15 of them OHH - also 4 Me-262's in 1/32 scale too Then all of the 1/48 scale Stukas and then there are all the 1/48 109 Kits all of them different makers Monogram, Airfix,Tamiya and several others.
I haven't even gotten into the Apache and the Blackhawks that I have.
Should I even mention the Six Enterprise 1701's. The Large Kit that shows off the interior plus the 8 DS-9 Shuttles and then the 5 Boxed Reliant Star Ships i've got too
I could go on and on, but why bother to do that at this point. Lets just say that I have Lots and Lots of Kits that I have got more than One of in the several Large Piles of Kits from which I (Sometimes) do build

a friend of mine made a "fort" of his kits in a spare room, (imagine the luxury of having an empty room to play with? he bought a 24 room victorian when they were cheap.) he lives alone, has one well mannered cat and can play all he wants. he did a nice job, too. guard towers, a central entrance, covered rooms. like a castle. he goes in it and moves stuff around refining it when he's depressed. it' huge! i keep trying to get a picture but he's paranoid. ah, to be rich as well as crazy.

Would I? Usually did but never stuff over $15. I have a small flock of '64 Mercury Marauders here and about 5 '36 Fords of various vintages. I'd have to check the inventory to say how many Esci F-104s live here. I had a flock of Matchbox Gladiators and once had 6 Meteor kits.

After reading some of the posts, I went downstairs and checked out my gallery. A long time ago, I would buy numerous Revell WWI kits to bash into models of aircraft not then covered by major (or minor) manufacturers. For instance, a Fokker E.III led to a Morane Type G, a Pfalz E.I, a Fokker D.II and several others. I would get the drawings (if I was lucky) or work from photos from the different Putnam Books of the day. Such sources were: Revell Fokker E.III (as stated), Revell Albatros D.III, Airfix Albatros D.V, Revell Morane Type N, Airfix Roland C.II (into a C.III), Airfix Hanover Cl.IIIa (into a C.V?), Lindberg JN-4D (into an N-8, a J-1, and a twin engined JN-4) and Revell Sopwith F.1 Camel. All told, I probably have as many as twelve examples of the models, converted (with a lot of Green Stuff, sprue and grinding) into replicas of other aircraft.
