Never say never. I've been on hiatus a few times due to military duties, school, professional career and having the house destroyed in a fire. In fact it's been almost exactly 10 years since the fire that destroyed most of my stash and equipment (my airbrushes and compressor were in the only room that didn't burn) and I decided to walk away from the hobby. About 4-5 years that I got the itch to get back into it, rebuilding the tools from scratch while on my fixed pension was the hardest. So pack your gear carefully, store securely (preferably in a fireproof bunker) and take a break. I'm sure you'll return. And if not, find a budding young modeller who can't afford all the tools and gift him/her yours. I got many of my tools in my early years from older modellers who helped me get started and over the years I've given away more tools and supplies than I can count to kids. I gave away my old airbrushes last year. They are 30 odd years old but still work perfectly (lots to be said about buying quality) to a new modeller. He's learning to use them and I hope he gets years of use out of them.
