What to do with the leftovers ?
Schoolboy Phil used to be delighted when an Airfix kit had optional items. As well as finishing my aeroplane, I'd have some special bits to keep as well - a bonus !
Which is why I have boxes and drawers full of nicely moulded bits of plastic just waiting for a purpose. A purpose that will never arrive because I've forgotten that I own the things. Now the problem is getting worse as some of the bits leftover genuinely will be useful - I just need a filing system that lets me keep track of them.
Or I need to throw stuff away and forget it. Then I won't have a "Oh, I could have done with one of those moments" in a few weeks time.
Before I start filling the bin, does anyone have any sensible suggestions ?
Note: These are just the plastic bits. There are also some etched brass and whitemetal "goodies". And yes I know some of the stuff you see in the picture is useful and I will be filing the bigger sprues. And no, I will not post any bits out to you.
