The photos below may give you a little idea as to the nature of the "but...". As you can see four themes dominate my collection: Classic Space, Classic Town, Star Wars and (modern) City though I do occasionally dip into other themes if I like the models - hence the new Space Police models.
Feel free to browse and leave a comment - this blog is purely for my own amusement - but all are welcome to have a look around and offer an opinion. I am an active collector so please check out the advert on the right if you have any Lego (in good condition) for sale.

On the windowsill - some classic Town and City buildings plus one of my own creation.
Behind the door - modular buildings and Tantive IV.
In front of the window - a hodgepodge of models: lots of Star Wars, some Classic Town and Aqua Raiders.
Another shot of the modular buildings and a hint of my depth of feeling for Classic Space.
Star Wars and Classic Space - my hardy stand-bys.
Some of the bigger Star Wars models and the gorgeous Medieval village scene plus the Christmas Shop...
More Star Wars stuff: the fabulous Dropship - one of my favourites - has pride of place atop my computer.
A good array of some of the most aesthetically pleasing Star Wars models.
Oh I do like Classic Space!
I shall be focusing on specific models over the coming months but for now this is a mere glancing overview of part of my collection - a collection currently valued at just over £10,000. That's a lot of moolah - but it stops me drinking, gambling, drug taking and (sin of sins) getting into football! ;-)
