A Thin Year for a FatCawthorne!!

Recommended Posts

Well not the most prolific of years was 2019.  Life, the universe and everything else it seems did its best to sidetrack me from my "happy place"!

 

We got a Recce Spit (PR Mk.1G) over the line from 2018 for starters.....

026 025

024

 

Followed shortly by Airfix's 1/48 Blenheim....

 

This build was littered with own goals but now that it's been on the shelf a while I'm far happier with it (and probably with myself too which is the real nub of the story!).....

003 004

 

Well will wonders ever cease, I mean finishing an entry in a GB - whatever next!!!

 

I built Revell/Hasegawa's 1/48 Sabre F.4 for the 50's Nato v Warsaw Pact GB using Red Roo's slatted wings......

 

033 031 038

 

We had a bit of a false start in the Phantom STGB, another build littered by yet more own goals, so we'll try and get that one into the 2021 edition!

 

A mojo restorer from that and for me a bit of a Blitzbuild due to a pressing deadline was my Iron Maiden 1/32 Spitfire.

And then it went off to a good home.....

Now with 10 or so days left of December to go, I picked up a casualty from the SoD and finally limped her over the line today......

Well, I'm off to catch the last half hour of 2019 with Jools and his Hootenanny, so all the best for a new decade to you good folks out there.

 

Happy New Year, Chris

Thanks Bruce, yeah it was a bit special.  I'm not a very star-struck person but this was a good meet-up.

Thanks Gazza. Just got to find some space to display it once the Chrimbo tree gets relagated to the loft!
