2016's output, small but perfectly formed.

Good afternoon everyone,


What with 2016 being a year of great changes, (moving house, new job, my wife having weight loss surgery), I've not had the time to be as productive as last year, but then again last year I had 4 enforced weeks off and then lost my consultancy contract, so ended up with a huge amount of time off. So here, in no particular order, are the builds I managed in 2016.


Revell 1/32 Fw 190 F-8

Tamiya 1/32 Corsair (with a pilot figure, which was the first attempt I'd made at figure painting for a while.

Hasegawa A-4M Skyhawk, which was one I pulled off the Shelf of Doom.

Airfix 1/48 Spitfire Mk. V, from the new kit, which went very well, apart from slight awkwardness with the undercarriage legs.

Tamiya 1/32 Spitfire Mk.16e, which was a bit of testbed for a natural metal finish (still don't think I've cracked it).

And finally, Eduard 1/48 Spitfire Mk.16 e in the colours of Air Vice-Marshal James M. Robb.

I was particularly impressed by the Pilot figure- excellent painting!


Let's hope your life settles down as well.
