Hanging in there.....

Recommended Posts

Its been another ridiculously busy year at work for me, so modelling has been a bit of a sideline.  Not my best year, but generally OK.


The year started with a couple of 1/76 resin AFVs from Matador, an FV715 Ferret Mk.5 and an FV721 Fox:






Then an aircraft that isn't exactly elegant, but interesting nevertheless, the 1/72 Matchbox Vickers Wellesley




A bit of a challenge this one, the very crude Leoman 1/72 Sukhoi Su-9.  Not really recommended!




My old Italeri Chinook received some blade repairs to resolve the wear and tear of travelling to many model shows




Then perhaps my favourite build of the year, the Blue Vixen radar trials conversion to an HS125-600, using the Matchbox kit, inkjet decals and some scratch built nose additions!




A trip to Disney Paris Star Wars event stimulated a build of the Bandai X-Wing fighter




A Fujimi Sea King kit that was missing its canopy received a home-made replacement and turned into an RAF HAR.3 SAR machine




Then for the 50th anniversary of its first flight, a naval Westland Sea King HAS.1, fully armed, using the Fujimi kit and some old Modeldecal markings:




The anniversary of the first moon landings saw an old Airfix kit built to modern standards:




After seeing the Italian Navy Avanti at the RNAS Yeovilton airshow, the A-model kit in  my stash moved to the top of the build pile:




Then I started off on a bit of a Skyhawk binge, starting out with the Hasegawa kit:




Quickly followed by the new Airfix kit in one of its guises:




My regular work trips to Holland enthused me to build Revells latest Embraer E190 kit in 26 Decals KLM markings:




.... and finally, two late Skyhawks in US Marines service, using the Italeri A-4M and OA4M kits:






And thats all fffffolllks!  See you next year.
