Fantastic pics again Amy! queen
Nice to see, that you are getting organized little by little, and that the species are come together right now! cheers
You inspired to do this myself today, it was something i wanted to do for a long time. Laughing
Elephants by elephants, giraffes with giraffes, and so on.
Only my one coloured stuff, i leave where it is, because i would loose oversight when i would mix them into the bigger groups... Rolling Eyes

Hello Amy. I have this elephant figurine, and in fact, it is the only one left from my childhood. I've never been able to identify it, but I know that Philter4 has it and told me it's not an uncommon figurine. It is hollowcast plastic, and dates back to at least the mid-1970's.

Willy, glad I could inspire you to organize your huge collection.

Sergey, I love your shelves. They look so wonderful. There is no need to be envious. I had a chance to buy 2 more of these shelves, but they are so heavy and take up so much room that I decided to go with something different.

Phil, I am glad to know that you have this wonderful elephant too and that you have kept it from your childhood.

Amy, what´s about your building ? I've looked at the pictures very often. How does the wonderful and amazing animal museum looks today ? Please, show us some new photos, if you have time. bounce bounce bounce

Thanks for bumping this up, I hadn't seen it. Amazing space, and from those last photos every surface covered with animals. :) Wonderful to see

I am working on it. I found some cases that I am about to cut the shelves for. I will be cutting 61 shelves for them so there will be lots of animal storage once they are finished. I have to buy the wood, cut it and then stain it. Once that is done and I have them full of animals, I will start posting some more photos.

I have been really busy lately, between working in my building, helping my mom, school projects with my daughter and sitting at the hospital with my step-dad. He has been there for 15 days, but they are hoping to release him today. I will try to take some photos of the progress I have been making in my building. I have gotten most of the shelves done and tons of animals displayed, but I haven't taken any pictures yet. If I have time this weekend, I will at least take some progress pictures to show.

Thanks Susanne. I am excited about the progress and can't wait to share some photos. My step-dad only has 10 more radiation treatments and then we will see if the cancer is gone. He had a long, bad run with his platelets and white blood cells over the last couple of weeks, but he is doing great now. Hopefully he will continue to do good and all this with be over with soon.

And what else is outside?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Is this building , a shed for my looks in your back yard or some where in the middle of no where, if so I would advise building an alarm in it or so heh, it would otherwise be an easy targets for criminal activities, Don't want to be hash, but it would be sad if this would get stolen or something else bad to mind. Neutral


But hey awesome collection here, that is one thing to be certain of! cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers

Thanks everyone for all the well wishes for my step-dad. He did get out of the hospital and is doing so much better. His white blood count is up and he is not having his panic episodes as badly.

Tylosaurus, I will take more photos soon and post them. I did take photos of some of my dinosaurs, but they aren't uploaded yet. I will post as soon as they do. The building is on my property. We don't usually have many people bug things around here, but I do keep it locked. Most people just think it is a storage building and have no idea what is in it.

I promised to take some photos, but they are taking a while to upload. I will post some now and I will post more as they upload. This is just part of my collection. I still have tons that are still boxed up. I hope you enjoy.

This particular shelf is about 9 feet wide and almost 5 feet high.

Ah okay well that's good to be assured of then, it's always better to be safe than sorry hehe, good to see you have it locked even that I'd upgrade it with an alarm xDDD Tesla Coils, Prism Towers and grand cannons haha, but yer I play too much Command & Conquer Red-Alert2 sometimes, Base defenses have always been my advantage with RA2 xDDD lol! lol! lol!

Here are a few random photos from my building. Please excuse the mess. It is still way under construction or organizing.

My previous horse shelf. These will all move to the horse shelf and this shelf will be used for my custom painted animals.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Schliech shelf. I am thinking about putting all the dogs and maybe some of the smaller animals on this shelf. Haven't completely decided yet.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

These are all waiting for me to be able to get to them and put them in their place.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

That was just a quick teaser. I am sure the next time you see all these shelves and the previous ones they will not look anything like these pictures.

Thanks Andreas, Susanne and Tylo. I am glad you enjoyed the sneak peak into my building.

Tylo, I actually have 4 of the display mountains. 2 of them, the second one pictured and another one that I haven't taken pictures of yet, both have the animals glued onto them. They were both displays at a store and they apparently didn't want to sell those particular models. The one with the Schleich on it are not glued down and they will eventually make it to the glass shelf with the rest of the Schleich. I will most likely end up putting all Safari on the Safari displays, but that will be way down the line. I'm not too sure about the ceratosaurus either, but I had to have it.

Hmm I know the idea hehe I had that with a few StarWars Starfighters even that the Incom T-47 Snow Speeder didn't do me much, it also had to be here, but yeah a very understandable situation indeed Cool

Now you know why it has taken me so long to sort and set up my collection and that's not even all of it.

I think you are talking about the old Schleich baby boars, item numbers 14226 and 14227. They are on the grey rack. Glad you like them.

A lot of time needs to spend on arranging alone and look at the amount of animals easily reached 10,000.

Thanks for sharing!!

This is awesome :) I see you got a lot of cool stuff to store. Do you lack of space at home? Rolling Eyes

P.S. Nevermind cat

P.S. 2 Is your collection room close to your house? You have so much cool stuff! For how long are you a collector?

Thanks so much everyone. I am so happy to share my collection with all you wonderful people. It has taken a while to get this far, but I still have a long way to go.

Jonathan, I believe, Master Cat, I do lack space everywhere. This building is a little bit of a walk from the house, but it is well worth the walk. I have been collecting Schleich animals since probably 2007 and started only in the last couple of years collecting the other brands. I started collecting Breyer when I was a kid and got my first ones when I was 13. I have always collected something though.

I will try to post photos of the progress as I go. It was really fun reading all the comments. Thanks so much for letting me share with y'all.

Hey, your collection is very nice!!! Shocked So many nice animals. :) It looks like a nice big shop and museum and I like to walk around and choose some of it. I love you
Do you always write down which animals you have? At the moment I have only some animals and I decided to write it down in a list on my computer.
I showed your pictures to my boyfriend and he only said "oh, what have I done...?". Because he gave some Schleich-animals to me, when it was christmas and last month when it was my birthday. Before I had some of it, but they are old and I didn't collect. But when he gave it to me I decided to collect, because I always loved these animals. Since he saw your room, he is afraid that we'll need a special room for it in some years and he is responsiblde for it. Very Happy Wink
But I think it's ok, he collects itself and his hobby needs much more room. Wink
Your collection is very awesome!

Yes, folks, that's what a world-class collection looks like... Shocked :) Part museum, part shrine, part temple...surely the largest and most complete collection in the USA...!

Congratulations, Amy - I know how hard you have worked and how much time you've put into this project, but seeing the photos makes it clear how impressive and unique it truly is... cheers

Thanks so much for the wonderful comments Inga. I didn't write down what I have, that is why I have many, many doubles. I have started trying to keep track of them by brands, but that is a lot of work when you has as many as I do. I am hoping once I finish setting them up I can catalog them better. I do suggest to start writing them down while your collection is small. I hope to one day have a picture of every single animal, but that may make my computer crash. cyclops At least if I group them by brand I can have those photos to look at. At least your boyfriend knows what can happen to a collection and might be able to prepare for it. My husband collects also, but he collects Hot Wheels and real cars. At least most of my collection is in my building and the house for now. His takes up a lot of room outside.

Thanks so much Phil. That means a whole lot to me coming from you. You helped me to get started on some of the harder and more unique figures that I have and helped me to start ordering from Germany. I am glad you like the photos.

I would love to update this thread, but it is a mess and I haven't had time to do anything in there. Between making the 3 dioramas and redoing parts of our house I haven't had much time to go out there, except to put more stuff in there and make it even messier. Hopefully I will be able to get some more work done in there soon. I will upload more pictures when I do. I am hoping to eventually get all the books moved out and all the scrapbook stuff so it will only be my collection. That may take a while. Thanks for all the comments.
