I'm obviously a mere beginner - I only have one mintish boxed Aurora original, one Aurora original assembled and then disassembled with no box or instructions, one Revell Germany 1993 reissue assembled and painted, and two assembled Revell mini-dino T-Rex's. I guess I need to be finding more...
Well, keep in mind, I am a bit extreme in my collecting. I intend to eventually have every version MISMB. Reissue and original. As well as built and painted, built in raw plastic, and built with replacement parts.
For now, all my sealed reissues are in totes in my bedroom. (the one room that is climate controlled so the shrink wrap shouldn't be affected by heat in the summer) Eventually I envision a full wall of shelves somewhere to showcase the original boxes, the reissues, and the full layout of the kits in raw plastic.
Don't know, if/when that will happen. But that is the goal.
The extras are for building. Most are designated for add-on heads. Even though I don't own them all yet, there is still hope that I will eventually acquire all the Alchemy conversion parts. (still need the sailback one, and most of the ceratopsian conversions) The others are either trade bait, or for multiple builds (I have several paint schemes I want to do on the sailback, etc.)
The box between the orange and green totes holds the 07 reissues. I have yet to find a tote that holds them nearly as well as that box does. Holds all the kits + the 3 white, make-and-take allosaurus kits I have. And the boxes on the left are recent resin acquisitions. (recent being relative since the big box was WF 2014) And I need to get another tote for those Revell kits in the middle.
