an Airfix MKxii....and i loved the build...i may have to chase another one when EN224 flys again

next was a back dated Tamiya Beaufighter using red roo tailplanes seats and short exhausts i created a very early MK1f beaufighter.

then a Tamiya KI61 using Hasegawa decals for a pretty unique aircraft...and one of my best attempts at weathering.


then a Clearprop 1/72 KI51 Sonia...a pretty nice kit.

a Arma 1/72 Hurricane MK1 trop...what a great kit....the only change from the box was a vacformed sliding hood.

then i went a little nuts......3 racing Mustangs

Civilized models "Miss Foxy Lady"....a fun build went together pretty well for a full resin kit.

civilized models "somethingelse"...same as Miiss Foxy Lady....a nice kit to build..the real aircraft are actually the same airframe.....now flying as a stock TF51 "crazy horse 2"

and then there is this....a contrail 1/72 kit of the racing mustang "strega"......it was a fight amd to be honest i didnt think i would get it finished at times..the canopy is painted black as it was a solid piece of "clear" resin that you couldnt see through. a shame as it has a pretty nice interior

a Hasagawa 1/72 KI46-11 dinah...to me one of the most beautiful planes of WW11

an accurate minitures TBM with a Lone Star conversion for a Hemut Valley firebomber....firebombers have become a theme.

an Airfix 1/48 Seafury i really enjoyed this kit....it's all out of box (except the decals) and other than sanding down the rivets on the tail planes next time i thought it was a great kit.

to me this one is pretty special.....it's an all resin 1/48 tigercat...a pretty old kit done by Cezchmasters in the 1980's and marketed in the west buy Aviation USK...it was a great build...i wish i'd lightened the back and maybe put a Lone star interior in it..it has a lone star 1000gallon tank and Caracal decals...but i am so proud of

and my final build...i started this about 15 years ago when a mate had a real one...it's a fujimi Skyline R34 GTT ..with aftermarket Advan wheels.


i did alot this year as in Melbourne Australia we couldn't go out for much of this year...but i actually made more kits than i bought...so a good year...i may do less building for 2021(though another firebomber is closing on being finished)...but i do look forward to catching up with friends and going out with family........but i suspect there will be a bit of modelling to come.
