If I can show very little expenditure I can justify my pursuits in terms of money. Now time, well that's a very different matter.
I have to confess that I also get a huge kick out of building something for nothing or as near to nothing as I can get.
Maybe it's time to start a 'Cheapskates Club' ?
I'm worlds repository for others crashed models ...
I hoard all the bits and bobs from models / gear ...
Even to foam and balsa I cut away from parts ... all goes in the 'later' bag.
Couple of days ago - was given 4mm Plywood ... had been sitting in a guys garage for over 30yrs ... I'm game !!
