In the 8 years since returning to the hobby, this is the first that I've struggled.  A combination of work (16 weeks away, all week, in Lancashire) and just a gradual ebb in my interest in playing with plastic meant that I've done nothing beyond July this year.  I also didn't make Telford, for the first time in a long time, nor any other UK shows apart from Avon and Salisbury.  I did make Prague again but actually enjoyed going to 4 Czech league football matches more than the superb show they put on there..  

To be honest I haven't missed it either as I've been watching a lot of non-league footie (my other hobby).  I will probably pick up a scalpel over Christmas as I'll have the grandkids there and they will want to build something.  One thing IS certain, is that I'm going to flog off a lot of my 1/48th aircraft stash and concentrate on smaller stuff, AFV and subs and my occasional quirky stuff.  Who knows what 2017 will bring...anyway here's what I DID  finish in order of completion...


#1 - Hasegawa Egg Plane P-40



#2 - Eduard 1/48 Bell X-1 probably my favourite for the year



#3 - Revell 1/48 F-5F for the F-5 GB

#9 - Special Hobby 1/48 F2G-1 Super Corsair for the F4U GB - my second favourite finish for the year!

Nice work Andy (the F-5s look particularly nice together :)).

I too have just gone through a major cull of my stash.  I actually found it quite liberating to get it back to a more manageable size.  Good luck with your mission and I look forward to seeing what you get up to next year!

An excellent collection of subjects, nice to see some different kits being built than normally seen,

I think for anyone else that would be a bumper year! I really like the OH-13 and that weird boat, but they're all good.
