Well, since today was Sunday, I decided to finally give a good clean up to my man child toys small vehicles collection, as I’m a lazy bastard that lets it collects too much dust for weeks at a time.

And since they’re all bright and shinny, I decided to share it with you guys, my pride and joy that has been slowing growing for the past 10 years, so, without further ado, here they are!

In the following years, I want to add soviet airliners (I’ve had my eye for a while on a Herpa Wings Tu-154M), Vietnam-era helicopters, trijets, at least one biplane (the fokker’s a triplane), british turboprops, allied WWII armor and more AT guns, but that will be when I’m back in Colombia, as I can’t indulge in this hobby as much as used to, as most came from the time I worked a full-time job, where more often than not I ended up eating only spaghetti and canned bologna sauce for weeks at at time after overspending in one of these, mostly the helicopters and tanks (all worth it!).

I had a bit more, but two movings and a car crash destroyed them.
