Hello all im going to display my total output for 2017. Ive only been a Forum member since June of this year. I'm not sure if it should be models completed after joining. If im in the wrong please except it as ignorance. Starting early this year I finished the Revell super bug F-18E in a US Navy Centennial paint scheme. I chose to do VFA-192 Golden Dragons and went for a Dark sea blue scheme. This probably counts more as a whif as im not sure if they actually wore the scheme in 2011. An A-10 USMC whif. In the markings of VMFA-451. I actually did scratchbuild the arresting gear, a retractable refuelling Probe, and scored the wings to represent a wing fold. I just dont have a photo of all of it. I have a double nose wheel for it that will get grafted on soon. When your a general you get to pick your own plane. I did my P-61 in General Earl Barnes of 13th AF the plane was pulled from and crewed by the 550thNF Sq. The only bare metal P-61 in the war. The next up was an old Monogram F-20 Tigershark. I opted to do a Whif Air Nat’l. Guard plane using F-16 Decals From the Indiana ANG. I started this A-20 in 2004 but due to my leaving the hobby i finished it this year. Revell’s F-84G in kit Decals. The yellow bomb hashmarks are from the spares My attempt at an Israeli F-16D using the Hasegawa “B” and a conversion set. Then on to a Hasegawa -5 Corsair one of two that I've done this year. The first from VMA-212 in Korea. The second -5 was an 5NL all weather model based at Glenview N.A.S. Circa 1956. I was tired of all blue so I went for a different scheme. After the two corsairs I went with Tamiyas F4f wildcat. I opted to build a Martlet V in 1944. I forget the name of the carrier but it was used in one of the April raids on Tirpitz in Norway. Next up was the first of Fifteen models for a project I am doing about the 8th air force. The 4th FG eagle squadron P-51D from Academy in 1/72. Another Hasegawa this time an Luftwaffe F-104G in USAF markings from the late 1970’s. I used Foil for the Finish. Hasegawa’s F-8E Crusader in markings from VMF(aw)-232 in Vietnam. Still needs weathering. Thinking about this it does seem I build a lot of Hasegawa kits. I did this year as i was given a large number of kits from my Friends stash i did build several other kits mostly old Monogram. They will be added later as i dont have photos of those or my KUTA Build. Next up is this FG1. There is an RFI for this. Next up is Airfix’s great Lightning. I built mine as an F.3 from 111 Squadron. There is an RFI of this. Next up is Eduards BF.110D in 1/72nd. RFI as well My last two are the BlackSheep Scooter from VMA-214, and my VA-55 Fury. Heres the Hasegawa A-4E scooter in VMA-214 markings from Chu-Lai in 1966. WIP and an RFI. Last up for now is the Hobbyboss FJ-4b Fury. I did this in markings for VA-55 Warhorses. I hand painted the wing Checkerboards & made a mask for the Trident. RFI for this in aircraft. Thanks for the patience i know its a long post. Dennis
