My god i am not alone ,i also have left a box with a german helmet in it unopened for a few days to exstend the exitement,also when you do get the helmet i agree its on to the next fix.my problem is i collect antiques as well ,clocks paintings ,books ect ect ,and also i am adicted to anything to do with lotus cars ,and i have one as a collcetors item.someone wrote the best adiction to have is for antiques,and militaria is in this category!heres to my fellow adicts!
One of my comrades here on the forum calls it "The sweet sickness"
No known cure.
