Other hobbies

Post by woznotwos » Fri Jul 06, 2018 2:49 am

I know ours is an expensive hobby but i was wondering what else everyone gets up to . What other interests do you folks have or collections for that matter ?
Just started blindfolded archery, best thing I've ever done, if you've not tried it. You don't know what your missing.

I collect all kinds of Imperial German cavalry memorabilia to include pickelhaubes, unit marked Lugers, sabers, carbines, lance, saddle with all associated leather, steins, smoking pipes, etc.

I like restoring and riding classic motorcycles. I had about 35 since I was 18.
I do have a modern one too, for riding daily. At the moment I'm busy restoring a Kawasaki Z650 from 1977,
but had BSA's, Norton's and Triumph's also. Picture of my new paintwork for the Kawa:

How it will look finished:

How I bought her:

So got my work cut out, but I like fiddling with old bikes!

Besides Militara, I collect toy soldiers and use to do high performance autos (Mustangs and Corvettes) and competitive rally driving.

My " second hobby " is collecting the medals ; ribbons ; photos and other related items
of the Confederate Veterans ( U.C.V. ) of our "Civil War " . The Confederates were only
allowed to have Reunions starting in 1890 .So my collection starts at 1890 and I stop at the
1942 reunion in Washington , D.C.

I make and collect military toys in 1/18th scale.
My toy creations pay for my spike collecting on a whole.

So, since airsoft tends to be a little slow in the summer time, what other hobbies do you partake in to occupy your time until "airsoft season?"
