Cookie's Nine for 2017

Recommended Posts

This is one of my favorite sections on Britmodeller, I love to see everyone's collections all together.

 

I had a slower year than usual, but still managed nine completions - all in 1/72.

 

Recently, I've been on a kick of trying to match an inspiring reference pic with my builds, it's an enjoyable way to go.

 

My first 2017 completion was the new Eduard Spitfire XVI.

Next up is a Spitfire FR18 modified from the new Sword Mk XIV kit.

And then another Spitfire FR18 from the AZ kit.

If you make three Spitfires, it's a good idea to go ahead and make six Spitfires.

 

Spitfire Mk 24 built from the Airfix Mk 22 kit.

I don't have b&w attempt for this one. Besides, I modelled VN318 as it appeared while still in RAF service rather than the RHKAuxAF as depicted in the reference pic.

A quick out of box Airfix Mk 22 - sorry no reference pic this time.

And finally, a Spitfire F21 cobbled together from Special Hobby, Eduard and Airfix parts.

Next is a Helldiver from the 1/72 Academy kit.

Inexplicably, it is not a Spitfire.

Nevertheless, splendid - as are the others. Lovely work.

In terms of quality (rather than quantity) that's been a blinding year Cookie B) 

 

It was very nice of you to keep your completion rate the same as mine to spare my blushes too :) 

 

Cheers,

 

Stew

Looks like it was a good year Cookie. Have to say I was a little surprised a couple of them weren't Spitfires!

They're all very nice Cookie. I now have a yearning to do a Dark Green/ Slate Grey Spitfire and, oddly, a Corsair.

Great output, Cookie - both in quality and quantity :worthy::clap:

 

Hard to pick a favorite; all the Spitfires are excellent, but the second F4 is probably on top, IMHO

You may not have matched your best in quantity Cookie, but the quality is still there. Nice idea to build from a reference photo too and that is a splendid collection of Spits. Well done bud. :thumbsup:
