As a result, I started collecting theirs first, and then FM as well. They are all carefully packed away right now, and not worth much of anything as collector pieces. The good news is though, that they are all pretty darn good models, and I've taken a few of them apart to use as basis for models that are not available any other way. Cliff Reed (or is it Read?) IS much better at it than I. but watch his work for inspiration!
