I was reading a thread recently where people where posting whatever they couldn't resist collecting. There were several collections that were very specific and focused on a particular niche. Obviously, I thought of my tanks. I haven't taken a picture with all of them together before so this is a bit of a shocker, even to me.

Now I get to decide how to put them back on the shelves around the room!

    Really like those. I am an old tank guy. Spent two years in the 1st Armored Division, 1971-1973. I was on M-60, M-60A1, and M-88 VTR's.

    I'm really impressed, and yes, you may need to seek help. At least now I can ck LOVE on 1 post instead of bringing up 1 at a time. Really nice collection!
    Oh, if they put you on medication, please let me know what it is.

    There has been several people with the same disorder on CW. I tried the pills but they didn't seem to help. I guess I'll just have to call the "Horde" patrol and see if they have a cure, LOL.
    Very nice collection, and The "Collecting Disorder" isn't life threating, unless your spouse warns you to slow down first.

    Since this picture I've already added three more! Luckily I'm still single, or should I say, married to my collecting?

    As far as I'm concerned, as long as stuff isn't piled on the floors I'm not a hoarder. I'm proud to say that all of my collection fits nicely on my (multitude of) shelves. I have no wall space left, but that is another matter entirely.

    What is scary is this is JUST the tanks. I'm not going to add the field guns/artillery, support vehicles, and soldiers at once! Then you will all know the true magnitude of my illness!
