This is one of my favorite sections on Britmodeller, I love to see everyone's collections all together. I had a slower year than usual, but still managed nine completions - all in 1/72. Recently, I've been on a kick of trying to match an inspiring reference pic with my builds, it's an enjoyable way to go. My first 2017 completion was the new Eduard Spitfire XVI. REFERENCE PIC LINK 1/72 effort Next up is a Spitfire FR18 modified from the new Sword Mk XIV kit. REFERENCE PIC 1/72 Attempt And then another Spitfire FR18 from the AZ kit. REFERENCE PIC 1/72 attempt If you make three Spitfires, it's a good idea to go ahead and make six Spitfires. Spitfire Mk 24 built from the Airfix Mk 22 kit. REFERENCE PIC I don't have b&w attempt for this one. Besides, I modelled VN318 as it appeared while still in RAF service rather than the RHKAuxAF as depicted in the reference pic. A quick out of box Airfix Mk 22 - sorry no reference pic this time. And finally, a Spitfire F21 cobbled together from Special Hobby, Eduard and Airfix parts. REFERENCE PIC 1/72 Attempt Next is a Helldiver from the 1/72 Academy kit. Inexplicably, it is not a Spitfire. A British Pacific Fleet Corsair IV from the Tamiya kit. REFERENCE PIC 1/72 Attempt And number nine is another Tamiya Corsair. REFERENCE PIC 1/72 Attempt (albeit of a different Essex based F4U-1D) Happy New Year everyone!
