I think I'm addicted to buying the PE and turned aluminum barrels for armor kits. I can pass up the expensive tracks, resin conversions and decals, but it seems I always have to get photoetched detail parts and now the turned aluminum barrels. It started when I bought a couple of the barrels for about a/4 their cost on eBay. They were so much nicer than kit barrels, especially for early Tamiya kits (some of my personal favorites). Heck, I have barrels for kits that I don't own, yet.

Im the same way. I cant buy a kit unless I can find every thing I can aftermarket. The M8 Grayhound that is pictured in the Gallery has all the Verlinden after market sets on it.
A $20 turns out to be a $60 to $70 kit before you get started on it. ITS AN ADDICTION!!!!!
