At one point, I was considering self-adhesive labels on the bottom of the bases. A few examples. Image

And the former type face unit that I keep my aircraft in.
Image

The first drawer is a bit of a mixed bag. P-38 Lightnings, Martin Baker MB5s, and Jordanian Hunters to name three.
Image

Another bunch of random aircraft (I really should sort them out). Bf 109s, Me 262s, Fairey Fireflies...
Image

Meteors, Arado 234s, and some weird Luft 46 types.
Image

Mustangs, Fleet Air Arm, and USN stuff.
Image

Random aircraft that I really DO need to sort out.
Image

P-47s, P-80s, a solitary Whirlwind, and a few Polish aircraft.
Image

A mix of Eastern Front allies and Italian aircraft along with a few Ta183s.
Image

Mostly early war with a few He 162s and Lippisch P.13s
Image

More USN aircraft - not mine, although I did paint them.
Image

FAA Barracudas and Avengers, along with some Dorniers, Henschel 129s and others.
Image

Mostly WW2 RAF - although they're not mine and (for a change) I didn't paint them.
Image

Back to my stuff. Fairey Battles, Hampdens, Mossies...
Image

Typhoons, Furies, and assorted Japanese.
Image

1/600th RAF and USAAF C-47s plus assorted (1/300th) RAF types.
Image

Assorted Soviet types.
Image

Focke Wulf FW 190s and Ta 152s
Image

More British stuff that's neither mine or painted by me.
Image

And another drawer of the same.
Image

My medium USAAF bombers and observation aircraft. The B-17s aren't mine (and not one of my paint jobs either).
Image

Finally, some WW1 types that again aren't mine (or painted by me).

Those drawers are awesome, they almost look like they come from a school/university? That’s a serious aircraft collection!

I believe they came from a printers / print shop that was closing down and were used to hold lead type.

Thanks.

What an awesome collection! Hose pics were great. My favorite is the random drawer - looks like one of those big heaps of WW2 aircraft at the end of the war.

That's so awesome! SO do you just keep your entire collection at the club, or do you have some stuff at home and some there? I've never been part of a club with permanent storage areas before, I always just brought my stuff over for a game.
Time on the recce is time well spent!

Pretty much, it's the only place it gets used so it makes sense.

I do have some stuff at home but it's either stuff that I haven't finished or old stuff that I felt needed redoing. For example, as you can see in some of the photos, I've recently started painting the aircraft canopies in a light blue - in the past I used black. So over the next ? months I'll be redoing them in blue.

It's very handy, but can be expensive as it obviously costs more for permanent premises rather than booking a hall for one night a week (for example).
