[vwonjxrr] A collection of polyhedra

Consider collecting physical models of polyhedra, or perhaps, collecting polyhedra collections, for aesthetic value.  Many options:

Which polyhedra should be in a collection?  Obviously the Platonic, but what else?  All the Archimedean and Catalan, or just the prettiest ones?

For a given collection, what should its unifying dimension be?  Same edge length, same circumscribing sphere, or same volume?

Should it be solid, hollow, or wireframe?

The standard other qualities about any collection: material, size, accuracy, precision.
