Not as many from me this year as last year, mostly due to work commitments but also a couple of these models taking far longer than they should...... All are 1/72 except one. In no particular order, first up a Special Hobby Hughes TH-55. I had no idea how many parts you are expected to scratchbuild with this kit. Quite a few of them really should have been provided in the kit. The skids were very brittle and I ended up replacing them with brass rod bent to shape. Keeping it in the family, Italeri OH-6A...... ....and their AH-6 ....Profiline MD500 - more pics here .......and their MD520N NOTAR - more pics here Amodel Su-26 with home made decals for one of the first Su-26s I ever saw; The two-seat Su-29 And the updated Su-31 Minicraft 757 1/144 - more pics here Italeri OH-58A converted to a Jet Ranger - more pics here Pavla Fa330 - very fiddly! - more pics here MPM Trent Meteor - more pics here Italeri Junkers Ju-52 - more pics here Amodel Yak-25RV - more pics here Pulled this out of the stash as the flimsy box was really suffering and thought 'There's only a few parts, how long would that take?' Big mistake, nothing fitted and lots of filler. After painting and decalling, I gave it a clear coat and the white in the decals bled out into the clear coat. That took some cleaning up and it's not perfect now but certainly a lot better than it was. Tupolev ANT-25 one of only a couple of kits produced by Tupolev themselves and a huge model! After the Tupolev struggle I felt like doing something just for fun, I'll add a load to it in the New Year, Airfix Recovery Set; Finally an Airfix Tucano. Bought this second-hand a few years ago, the decals were badly out of register so I did my own and just for something a bit different chose one of the QinetiQ aircraft. The paint is still wet on this at the moment so I'll tidy a few things up in the morning. Happy New Year to everyone. Steve
