    This might be a good one:



    Of course, my wife has reminded me (more than once) that "There`s a fine line between hobby, and mental illness combined with fiscal irresponsibility".... :)

    And it's not a question of if you'll crash but when.

    Model Railroading can suck a bunch of your money too. Especially if you buy the hand built BRASS steam locomotives.
    Prop collecting and Studio scale modeling can be expensive as well.
    Ask me how I know this.

    I started HO trains shortly before we decided to move. Your right it isn't cheap and when you go the uber train route it gets really pricey

    I inherited a large scale R/C model biplane from my dad, thankfully there was no transmitter with it. I might have been tempted to try flying it, no doubt would have ended up a pile of balsa toothpicks! It hangs in my office/den, safe from destruction. IMG_0357 (2).JPG

    I'm pretty much pared down to audio with remnants of the others.
    Trying hard to stop acquiring personal "holy Grail" items, I'm too old to fully enjoy what I have and cleaning up my estate is going to be a nightmare for someone.

    I'm looking at taking a loss on the Model Railroad stuff just to be done with it. Then I need to clean out the garage. About the only collectible I'll keep is a copy of the 4' diameter filming miniature of the Lost in Space Jupiter 2. Next up, sell old plastic models. I'll keep my books and LP's for now. AND my indoor RC helicopters.
