Stumbled upon this. 

 

This Japanese modeler's man-cave is something else:

At 10:05 that connects with where that unless it is a game miniature I'm always afraid to pick up someone else's model; I didn't build it and don't know where its strong and weak points are. A lot of that goes as far back as late 1970s when a friend okayed me picking up his Tamiya Panzer 2 and even though I was a more prolific tank builder at the time, in picking up Tripp's tank I managed to break off 2 of the return rollers. 😞 Yes, that still bugs me all these decades later!

Jeeesss, an entire building as a dedicated modeling studio and warehouse. Guy must have some money (and/or no other life). Very impressive, I'll say that.

If I understood correctly, he has ~15,000 kits in his stash.  The build featured in the video took him ~one month to complete.

 

My math says, at one kit built per month, he should exhaust his stash in the year 3270.  :rolleyes:

As soon as I set my build down I tell/show the judges where how to pick it up for thais very reason.
