SimonL's efforts for 2017

Recommended Posts

Somewhat reduced output this year, with a few significant work trips and then an unexpected health issue right at the end of the year (who knew reaching 50 would have that much effect on my blood pressure :P). As per usual models generally brush painted with Tamiya and/or Italeri acrylics. Not so usual, I got on to a real roll with 1:48 scale military vehicles, which is a bit of a change for me. I have a few aircraft close to being finished, but not confident I will manage them before 31 Dec. Thanks for looking. Merry Christmas and happy, safe and prosperous 2018 to all.

Yes the desert camo schemes are particularly attractive, I like the bases you made for the vehicles too B)

 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours too :) 

 

Cheers,

Brilliant those Simon. 1/48 seems to work so well for those armour subjects.

Thanks Steve. It really does, doesn’t it? Pity they are not as common as 1:35 scale though.

Thanks Stix. Hopefully on the mend now (if the medications do their job). All the best for 2018!

Thanks! The Beaufort  was a challenge  - and i suspect it is  one of the factors that lead me to try something else this year, but I am rather proud of how it came out. And yes, the armour was fun. All the best to you as well for 2018.
