Chocksaway's 2012 Collection

2012 was not a particularly productive model-making year for me. Lots of excuses for this being the case, none worth repeating. I managed to add 4 more Harriers to my 1/48 scale Harrier collection (now up to 13), built my first 1/48th scale biplane, my first egg planes and built a model I should have made 30 years ago - the wonderful SR-71 together with a 1/144 YF-16 and a competition entry 1/100th Alize. Without further ado, here's how they turned out...

Harrier GR7 - ZG532 operated by IV(AC) Squadron, RAF

Ansaldo SVA.5 - Italian Air Force, c 1918

Breguet Alize - IN202, Indian Navy

For our club's "6 Month Challenge" we are given a kit to build and do with it as we please - I decided not to build it quite the way it was intended. It's a Heller 1/100th scale Breguet Alize with scratch Indian Navy decals ...

Harrier GR.1

Another Hasegawa Egg Plane, this time a Harrier GR.1 of the HOCU built from the box. A not very paint job it has to be said (may have another go at it) ...


General Dynamics YF-16

A quick and dirty build of the Revell 1/144th scale YF-16 whilst building my next Harrier. A cockpit tub, seat and plasticine pilot added, else it's out of the box. Paper clip and milk bottle top for a stand.


My Italian Navy Harrier is unlikely to get done now this year, but will be finished in January and the 1/144th scale A-6 Intruder is also on hold. The plan, but not the New Year Resolution, is to do more models next year, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions, so they say.

Seasons greeting and best wishes for 2013 to you all
