    I know a few guys on here collect model trucks and equipment and I thought they might like to see some of my dads collection. I was able to stop by my parents house this past weekend and grabbed a few pictures of his model collection. Last time he counted he had over 600 of them. Mostly 1:50th scale diecast but he does have a few 1/64th and 1/32nd scale also. He makes a bunch of new custom ones every winter and has been in the DHS diecast open house model show every year in Ohio. He won the first time he entered. Here are some pics of his model room in his basement. Kinda messy at the moment but you get the idea of how into model collecting he is.

    Those are his favorite too. He has a few lattice boom cranes still in the boxes that he hasn't had time to put together. He also tries to buy every Norscot model they come out with too.
