Every time I transferred base either overseas or CONUS I had to ship completed kits. Most times I would box them up and mail them to my parents to store for me, but a few would go with me. And if you ever dealt with military shippers you know that "handle with care" is a myth. I would spend several days at my new units repairing damaged models. I was quite good at it but sometimes the kits were so damaged that all I could do was trash them which gave me an excuse to build another one.
