I'm trying to figure out how you can have a fire that close to vegetation without at least a metre of cleared ground all around & not have it set the entire state alight! :o


Recovering from that: I feel your pain but, sometimes, as gut-wrenching as it may be, it needs to be done & is for the greater good. :icon_meditation:

Why destroy them?  Fair enough if you don't want them yourself but why not first offer them for sale?

No one would buy it been through trying to sell models before, and I couldn't give it away it was too big.

Absolute last one for me was of a badly built Airfix P-38 one afternoon winter 2005-6 during a rainstorm no less. Still remember the 1960s pyres; hissing, bubbling styrene minute or so after igniting the gasoline, thick black acrid smoke wrapping 'round the engine nacelles of that hand brushed & spray can-painted Airfix Heinkel 111H-20 winter 1965-6 in particular, only time I'd ever see perfect soot stains 'round engine nacelles. The final 1960s "Burning Men" were 16 or so models formerly hanging over the bedroom ceiling one afternoon 50 years ago last June, thought then I'd never build models again.
