...Thirty 1/72nd scale "Kit Italians" couldn't find, dozen of them much wanted to build CANT Z.1018 bomber & night fighter top of the list, by time I'd resumed kit building in earnest 2006 near all out of production. Had a top-of-line Aztec Deluxe airbrush kit, didn't touch it other than replacing airbrush with brand new unit, gave it away along with all unopened Humbrol enamels, 45-plus 1/72nd scale not built WWII Luftwaffe & Arme de l'air kits, dozens of aviation reference books some quite rare to the Mossbergs owning Viking Hobby in Sacramento. All the Italian aviation references went to the Stormo Magazine website owner, decals a French pastor. Airbrushes, compressor, hobby tools, entire built kit collection to my apartment maintenance man June 16, 2021. This wasn't my first hobby disinvestment, aviation references collected between 1978 & 1990 mailed to Russian & Ukrainian modelers after 1992, owner of Unicraft models I'd helped set up in business mailing him a PC system, recently got back in contact with him after near 25 years. Assorted collection of 95 built 1/72 kits including entire 1964-66 AIR LINES (FROG) line including "stand-in" never-issued FROG ones to son of my sister's sister-in-law in 1997, says he still has them but dread to think in what condition!
