Firstly, an explanation of what I'm doing. There are more than 800 City, or at least related to City, sets from 1958 to the present day that I don't have. (Compared to the 180+ sets I do own.) I have got detailed inventories for each and every set so I know exactly what I would need to build them. From the masses of spare pieces I own, I have managed to allocate some to the sets that need them so I have hundreds of partially made sets, all bagged and sorted into their respective years. This all might sound a bit nerdy, or even have a touch of OCD about it (who knows??) But it's my way of having fun! Will I manage to complete every set before I die of old age? Probably not, but I'm going to darned well try!
|Each box lid contains two rows of bags, each row is |
one years worth of partly complete sets.
Does all that make sense? (My wife doesn't think so, I think she's despairing of me!!)
So that's what all my spare time consists of at the moment. At least it keeps me off the street!
