New wing for my 1200+ wings

With over 1200 models, I finally gave up on trying to put airplanes all over my house (not to mention the angry wife factor). I've started enclosing a sundeck we never use and turning into a room for my collection. At about 14' x 16' it will be a bit tight, but it will have to do. I'll be doing 90% of the work myself and I'll be posting pictures of the progress along the way.

These pictures will give you some idea. I only have less than half of my collection displayed, the rest is mostly boxed waiting for the new room.

Wow, this is beautiful. My collection is only one third of yours but my girl friend is already complaining. I think I will show her your pictures.

All these show cases with a whole bunch of planes in it is simply gorgeous! Thank you very much for sharing.

WOW!...Impressive!

Hey bro...When i come to Florida in march i may just have to drive down to Miami to see your collection. I will be going to Orlando for 2 weeks. We are gonna drive down to west plam beach to see our old neighborhood while we are there, which isn't too far from miami.

NOTE: i have a brand new serpentine belt on my van, so I shouldn't have a problem

I am in awe! That collection has to be the biggest I have ever seen. How much have you spent on that? And how long have you been collecting for?
