[WWI] Collecting Kits

There seems to be a lot of familial concern about the number of kits 
that get saved for someday. If you want to get them off your back, 
let them know that all modelers share this affliction, and that they 
are rather lucky most of you are not collecting giant scale RC model 
kits. Not only are the boxes significantly larger, so are the price 
tags. Mid three figures are standard, and mid fours quite possible 
for high quality editions. This just for the airframes. Motors, 
radios and other accessories can easily double the cost of a kit, and 
still don't guarantee the model won't end up in the dumpster sooner 
rather than later.
