I am sure we could have talked about the hobby for days, weeks, even months..... His passion were robots and spacetoys. Now years later his wife and son decided to let go most of the toys and I went up there for some socalled robot diving at the attic... man oh man...it was HOT that day, very hot, over 34 degrees and i lost quite some sweat up there... the attic.. amazing.. filled no FILLED with toys, boxes, trains, cars, dolls, robots and spacetoys, really TO much to mention... I had to make a selection because it was simply to much for me to handle in one time.
It would fill my workshop till the roof if i brought it all with me at once... We talked about the hobby and nice stories from the past, a cup of thee and after that I went up for a dive... I will show some pictures of the attic later but i have to ask first if its ok to show them.
I really found dome nice toys to complete my collection, robots and spacetoys i missed. furhter many robots to repair and to trade...
