  3. Hello Everybody well its time to post this year’s yearbook photo’s. I was able to finish 19 total this year, and have 7 more in the almost finished pile. Starting in January i was able to build my 1st target since I've come back to modeling. I built a 1/48 Tamiya generic M-10 Achilles of the British army in Italy. With a name like this it gives new meaning to the term “Chelsea Tractor” (Thank you Jeremy Clarkson). Next up was my KUTA build an ancient 1/48 Lindberg Beech Stagger-wing that i converted into a bush plane w/ski’s. I dedicated it to my Brother Mike, he passed away in 2010. Next up was my entry into the Forums 10th anniversary build. I opted for the 1/72 Academy OV-10 Bronco. In this case the colors are from an U.S.Navy example based at China Lake with VX-5 in late 1986-87. Not exactly sure why the desert colors on a U.S.N. Bronco ? My working theory is a camouflage test. Possibly anticipating getting involved in the Iran/Iraq war. I then finished up a few builds that had been started in 2017. The 1st of those was this Grumman Hellcat. I chose to do it in the markings of a Hellcat from VF-33 on Espirtu Santo in late 1943. I found the marking scheme while looking at an Eduard Hellcat, and yes i have a photo as well. Followed by a 1/48 Tamiya Mk.VI Mosquito, from the Banff Strike Wing. If memory serves me 143 Squadron. I was able to get into some more modern stuff as well. I did this VMA-311 Tomcats Harrier. And this F/A-18C as a CAG Bird from VFA-86 Sidewinders late 1990’s. Then probably some of my Favorite builds of the year. First up is “Geronimo”. A P-40N from the 15th Fighter Group, 45th Fighter Squadron. Its a gilbert Island based unit and was a sister to the Makin island P-39’s. My take on Revellograms Ju-87D/G Stuka, was built for the Mediterranean G.build. I opted for a Ju-87 of Nachtschlactgruppen 9 in Italy early 1944. I followed this up with a build i started 15 years ago. I finished my RAAF Black cat from #20 Squadron. Its not 100% glued as it has to be able to be stored in a broken down condition. These were followed by a 1/72 quickbuild Hobbyboss Me-262 for that Single type build. I built V056 which was a constantly modified prototype used for testing different weapons. In my case the prototype of the Single seat night fighter. I opted to do Lothar Von Richetofen’s Yellow Fokker for “The final hour build.” Next up was one of two builds for the 1960’s NATO/Warpac grp. Build. I chose an early Mig-21 from the Polish Air Force, I used a Bilek 1/72 kit. The 2nd build was one of my Unicorn models since ive come back to building. I used the Revellogram F-102 Deuce. I chose the markings of the 431st FIS. Zaragoza Spain 1961. Next was the P-47D for the STGB. I opted to do “4-F” from the 356th Fg. This was followed by the Dedicated type build where everyone built the same 1/72 Airfix P-51D. I opted for “Run, Rabbit, Run” from the 20th Fg. Both the P-47 & P-51 are also part of a side project I’m building concerning 8th A.F Fighter Command. The last couple of Builds are the Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIb in VVS markings. This was built for the “Brits abroad” build. Last up is the 1/72 Hobbyboss quickbuild P-39N that was built for the p-39 stgb. This was built to Represent an Airacobra Mk.I of 601 Squadron. I did forget to add this model. I completed a Tamiya 1/72 Fw-190D a month or so ago. So officially thats it folks, thats all of my 2018 builds. I still have 2 spitfires, hurricane Mk.I, Tempest Mk.VI, & a B-18 Bolo. Im currently working on all of these but dont think they will make the 31/12/18 deadline. If anyone would like to see the WIP’s please ask i will add the appropriate link. This post is a bit long as it is, and adding 18 links would just make it longer. As is my usual finish, questions, comments, or jokes ? Dennis
  4. It was all 1/72 for this year. Nine finishes and a fuller display cabinet. I even managed to make a passable plane in four days and do two conversions. The high spot was the 109V14 racer, something I wanted to do for the past four years. A few fun things, came up with a detachable stand using magnets and no hole drilling and started a long term thread to build as many Airfix 1/72 kits as I can as post illness therapy. Just one failure to enter the KUTA build. My standard has definitely improved, right down to spraying 1mm mottles. Sometimes I got dirty but for others, I came clean...Made some progress towards taking decent photographs but some way to go I fear...Loving the inflight poses, most of these are going to be given away as desktop models so apart from the 109F, no wheelie bits for azureglo! Zvezda 109F Link Airfix 109E-4 Link Tamiya 109 (E-3) V14 Link Airfix Hurricane - Science Museum Link Airfix 190A Link Airfix P-51D Reno Racer Link Airfix Tomahawk Link Airfix Red Arrows Gnat Link Airfix Spitfire F22 Link Big thanks for all those commented and encouraged me along the way. Happy Holidays and see y'all in 2019. Cheers Anil

I see five options: - re-release of kits with new decals like the freshly announced F-16C (link) - main contenders are: F-5A/B Freedom Fighter, E-2C Hawkeye (link), Mirage III, CM-170 Fouga & AMX; - new variants of existing kits with a limited number of new parts like Mirage III/5 or Kfir derivatives, single and two-seats MiRSIP, Milan, Nesher, Dagger, Finger, Cheetah etc.; - new variants of existing kits with several new parts like Harrier GR.1/GR.3 link, Grumman C-1 Trader & E-1 Tracer or S-2Ts Turbo (Fire) Tracker; - kits already announced and in the pipe line (see picture herebelow): 1/48th M-346 Master link, F/A-18D ATARS Hornet link (but also 1/72nd C-17 Globemaster link & 1/32nd F86F-30 Sabre link); - Brand new type(s). Then which one? That's the question. Dassault Mirage F-1 family? (Just to p. KH) Sukhoi Su-25 "Frogfoot" etc. All bets are off. Answer to the end of next week! V.P.
