JWM's 2019 yearbook: 13 and that it is

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

The 2019 in my case was a year of flying boats and floatplanes. Only one so far is a land based (and a second one - The Vildebeest which is not finished also, maybe I will finish it during those 2 weeks left till January 2020...). Alreeady 2018 was finished with two Curtisses (Seamew and Seahawk) and three Grummans (Duck, Widgeon and Goose), so the series of sea-based machines is longer then year.

 

But from the beging: 

1. Consolidated PB2Y5 Coronado, ( Mach 2 kit 1/72 ) from Saipan, 1945, constructed within GB "floatplanes and flying boats I):

2. Martin Mariner PBM3-S (scratch conversion from Mach 2, 1/72) based on Cuba,  1944

9. Beriev Be 2/ KOR-1 (A-Model, 1/72)

10. Beriev MBR-2 M-17 (scratch conversion from Avia/Eastern Express kit of MBR-2 bis), Finnish AF, 1942

Those 10 are all what I finished but I have next 3 very advanced (Savoia SM 55X, Beriev Be4, Beriev MBR 2 bis) which are already painted and Vildebeest glued almost completely. Wee will see what I will be able to include to 2019 yearbook within next two weeks...)

Best regards and comments welcome

What a superb collection Jerzy-Wojtek. Ten models of that standard including two fully-rigged biplanes is something to be proud of.

 

Like you I have a couple of builds that should have made it into my Yearbook entry but I decided not rush them - modelling against the clock (or the calendar) is not something I enjoy. There's always next year!

 

Best regards

Very nice selection! The Boeing is an amazing build in particular. I do like the unusual looks of the Berievs too.

Dave,

You are right! I gave up with faster finishing of Vickers Vildebeest (SH, 1/72, Singapore, 36 Sq, 1942). Let it be No.1  for 2020, since it looks that I need only few more days, but certainly not only tomorrow...

Have a Happy New Year!

Regards

Jerzy-Wojtek

The Mach 2 kits are not that bad as people think on them, nevertheless each part have to be considered if do not need improvment...I do not how it is with York, I did some years ago Airfix Lancaster ( ~1980 kit) conversion using CMR resin fuselage. It was on RFI in 2014 I think...

The Dixie Clipper is a truly outstanding model!

Roman, thank you, this was a kind of new experience (so big and so poor) ... And subject which I was dreaming about last 40 years perhaps (with breaks :) )

 CC, many thanks! the 13 models is the smallest number in last 4 years, wher it was (AFAIR) 16,18,28 and now 13... - but some big machines are amog them, so maybe I should count engines, not whole planes? ;)

Andrian, many thanks. Boeing was a challange indeed as I said above to Roman. I am rather glad with it.

Maybe the 2020 will contain similar stuff - in case of  the year of Short Empire for both of us? :)

 

 

Regards and Happy New Year for all BM fellow.
