My modelling year 2015
January 6, 2016 in Uncategorized
A happy new year to all Imodelers ! 2015 was a difficult year but i managed some builds and made some good progress on long time runnung projects like my H.M.S Hood in 1/350 scale.
The first completed kit in 2015 was Academys Junkers Ju 87 G-2 in 1/72 scale, oob with a winter camo on, done with Humbrols Maskol.
Next one was Dragons M4AA(76)W tank in 1/72, the Trumpeter StuG III Ausf. E in 1/72 followed and a third tank, Trumpeters E-25 project tank hunter in 1/35 was done also.
This one was build as a present and the “new owner” likes it very much.
2015 saw also the build or finish of three WWII fighters in 1/48 scale. The excellent Eduard Focke Wulf Fw 190 A-8/R2 Profi Pack, Eduard Grumman F6F-3 Hellcat Profi Pack and the old tool Airfix Hawker Hurricane Mk.I ( still a lovely kit ).
The most important project in 2015 was the re-start of my naval projects. H.M.S Hood in 1/350 ( new progress pics attached), Revells Schlachtschiff Tirpitz in 1/700 ( 80% done but needs still tons of TLC ).
And as new projects on the bench Revells Bismarck and Tirpitz in 1/350 scale. The bow profile of Tirpitz was changed and i have now everything to detail up Bismarck.
2015 was also a good year to grew up the stash, beside some nice aircraft kits and tanks, i got Tamiyas Musashi, Missouri and New Jersey in 1/350 scale, Academys H.M.S Warspite, the Deluxe kit of the U.S.S Indianapolis and finally Dragons Schlachtschiff Scharnhorst in 1/350 scale. Thats the kit, that was for years on top od my wish list.
All the Best and happy modelling
