MadNurseGaz- a quiet year.

Recommended Posts

As the title says, a quiet year for me. My partner's and my own health, work issues and a general loss of interest have all got in the way. So without further ado, here are my completed models for 2018 (in no particular order!)

 

First up, the Special Hobby 1/72 Blackburn Roc, built for BM's "Brits Abroad" GB as a machine from the aborted sale of Rocs to Finland.

Emhar's Mk.IV tank in 1/72 from WW1 was a reminder of a visit to the Tank Museum, Bovington, where I sat in this very tank (the real one, you understand, not the model)

The old Airfix Seafire Mk. 47 in 1/48 crossed the bench, albeit finished in an impossible "one folded" pose

Another ancient FROG kit was their 1/72 Armstrong, Whitworth Whitley Mk.V

A well-documented captured aircraft that currently resides at the USA's National Museum of the US Air Force was built from Italeri's Junkers JU-88A-4 in 1/72

Revell's reboxing of ICM's 1/72 Heinkel He70F-2 wasn't a bad build, although I had actually expected to find Matchbox plastic in the box!

More vintage modelling with FROG, whose 1/72 Lockheed P-38J/L  Lightning fought me all the way!

The year's only "what-if", Hellers F-84G Thunderjet, built as an aircraft of the Royal Yugoslavian Air Force.

Here is the Italeri 1/72 Douglas C-47 Skytrain.

the Airfix kit in 1/72 of the Kamov Ka-25 was a "Kitswap" find at SMW some years ago . . .

Another SMW find was Heller's Fouga Magister in a special boxing with Irish Air Corps decals.

Another vintage FROG kit was this 1/72 Douglas A-4 Skyhawk in RNZAF markings

And lastly, two little tanks, Italeri's M4A1 (left) and Mirage Hobby's M3A1 (right)

And that, ladies & gentlemen, is it for this year!

OOps, no that isn't quite all for this year!

How I forgot to include this I don't know- only just completed,

a vintage FROG kit, their 1/72 Fairey Barracuda

And since my desk is now clear, I'm about to start a Revell (FROG) Shackleton for the Maritime GB, a Mistercraft Aichi "Val", and a HobbyBoss Dewoitine D.520, all in 1/72, but I don't believe any will be

finished by Hogmanay.

That's a quiet year?  Nice to see the classic kits being built, rather than hidden in attics.
