“I’ve been collecting models since I was 10,” says 55-year-old Jeff Jelinek, a fire protection engineer, who spend 25 years in the automotive/heavy truck industry. Jelinek collects with his two sons, and also builds models he can’t find in the market. Most of his 800-model collection is 1:50 scale. “I have a room large enough to display about two-thirds of my models, so I rotate them from time to time so I can see them all.” Jelenik is shown with two favorites, a CCM Cat D9 dozer and a WSI Hitachi 879 excavator.
