      Looking for ideas on how to store planes.

      Here is a short video of my “plane room” but I’m starting to run out of room.

        Now Kermit, if you could just get them all organised & working you would have a marvellous collection.

        That’s a great video Kermit. Looks like you have tidied up a bit since I was last there.

        You have a mixture of hangers and racking and I like the idea of what looks like removing the keels of the boats so they sit flat on the table.

        It looks like a large block with sheds is the way to go.

      Yes Ron, it’s a bit of an issue when you start doubling up on all your hanging models, makes for a problem when you want the other one.

      Racking them up is the only way to go.

      That way you still have room for the boats !!

      and the cars

      Unfortunately some cars & boats still have to be stored elsewhere

      Admittedly I have significantly downsized both the boat fleet ( only 13 now) & the plane collection (only 17 now) but now at least it’s easy to get to whatever model you want.

        Thanks for the photos Mike. You are super organised with all your models.

        I like the idea of racking but I’ll need to work out how to clear some floor space unless the racks can be attached to the walls?

        That’s no good Mike, too easy for the wife to see how many planes you have,  Kermit’s system is much better!

        You could well be right Pete however even with lots of models, their purchase & maintenance still has to be way cheaper than a horse !!

        That is the way gentlemen discuss matters. There was no stirring intended or implied, just a statement of fact, promptly agreed upon by the recipient.

        Live & learn Mr Frog, live & learn.
