Hi all and great to look back at 2018 and the bits of plastic I stuck together, whether for Group Builds here or elsewhere, or just for fun.

All are 1/72 unless noted. As I'm slowly getting into airbrushing, all of these are brush painted, except for any white finishes which are a rattle can with brush finish on top.

 

First finish was a Revell Albatross in January for the Flying Boat GB here

Then, an equally ancient Jaguar T2 for the Matchbox II GB

A total change of direction for me - Armour! A Meng Toon Sherman with the Oddball/Kelly's Heroes treatment..

But the ancient kits keep calling me! 😂 Revell's F-105G Wild Weasel for a Good Morning Vietnam GB

Quite happy how the camo turned out on this one using brushes..

Back to the future with a newish kit that's not Airfix!

Revell's mini Slave One for a Sci Fi GB. My first time using Maskol and really liked it.

And my last one, finished on Christmas Eve as a thank you present for my neighbour who's related to Ernest Shackleton. The Revell kit......the new one!

Thanks for all your comments, advice, likes and encouragement during the year - this hobby and the people in it are frequently my pressure-relief from all that's going on with work/family/life. etc. I appreciate the support!

 

Keep on sticking for 2019 and yes, will fire up the airbrush (and build some newer kits)  😀

 

All the best,

Dermot
