corsaircorp Posted December 28, 2019 Share Posted December 28, 2019 Hello Dears !! 2019 was a Telford trip year !! I elected to go up there every 2 years with my friend BS 103 ! I plan to make a trip next august with wifey and kids, we will see !! Now;, my 2019 productions has been essentially Aeroplanes, and for the biggest part, I'll say Aeroplanes that use to land on boat....Aka, the real aviation ! And it start with this one !! Seafire .17 at Hal Far Malta On the same way, My dogs family grew a bit, When I say a bit... It's a kind of sarcasm... Have a look... We rescued this Huuuge beast, Irish Wolfhound, at the time Sirius weighed 160Lbs.... And me ?? I was learning to walk with my Christmas gift... Well !! back to models !! And in this case, it's been a complete failure !! We stayed in Malta but a bit earlier A recce Hurricane... But the blue I used is not the right one.... I will Remake this one .... The MTO family.... Then there has been a gap in my production... Checking and re checking my references, starting new things.... as usual !! And we waited 'til May to see this one finished... HMS Thiumph, September '50 Korean war ... Firefly Mk I And here with her deckmate.... Sooo , we are now back to equality... I mean 2 naval birds and here is the second earth linked aircraft... Let's go near the North pole... F-94C in arctic markings... Then another goal for the Navy, Since.... The corsair of 2019 is a F4U-2 Night fighter Then ??? Equality again... Spitfire FR IX... Both 3 are ICM Spitfires ... Once again, the Navy take the lead with this one... Another big Beastie !! Looking that way she look like a nice girl did'nt she ?? No longer... Toilet bomber VA-25 in Viet Nam war !! At the time, I start to think about a Telford lunacy, shared with my friend @Martian Hale..... 3 Rocs in Telford was the name of the game, Here's the first one ... This Roc has been used as a AAA battery at Lee-on-Solent at the time of the BoB... Then of to UK... @BS103 pretty happy to see this charming old Lady... Finishing the Roc #2 in the bathroom of an hotel on the Guy Fawkes night... Then, the great meeting was on !! Can't resist to show this one once again... Models ?? You say Models ? Ah Hum yes... We did !! Helped by the gentle @Heather Kay, it was no longer 3 Rocs over Telford... But 4!! Here we are !! Then back home... I can make the second Roc RFI Wow wow wow, look like the sailor's birds took the lead now... 6 to 3... It's done !! Not really in fact since this one showed her big pointy nose... Eastern front, Spring 1944, H.U Rudel... And Earth bound aircraft tried again to win with this one... Finished on the line... The 3rd of my Brits in Korea serie... Spitfire family... Well Navies 6... Earthbound 5 !!! 11 kits finished, all at 1/48 scale ! A good laugh at Telford, all in all it has been a good year but on the family front... But that was another story... Well gents !! I wish yo all an happy new year !! May 2020 bring you lots of models, good health, joy and pleasure !! Sincerely. CC 28 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
