Year in Review – 2015
January 4, 2016 in Aviation
I always think I’m getting more done than I really am, and was surprised when I looked back at the 2015 completions – until I remember the work it took to finish the Stinger and the MiG-31! I remember when I was a kid I’d build a model on a Saturday – start to finish. However, I do enjoy increasing my skill set and learning to work with new mediums and techniques, and striving to get a more realistic finish vs. something that looks more like a toy.
First finish for 2015 was the Harvard – built from the Academy Texan kit.
Next up was the Academy PV-1 Ventura
Then the two looooong builds – the Testor/Italeri AC-119K Stinger gunship
and the Revell MiG-31 Foxhound.
Last finish of the year was the Airfix Magister
I’m almost done with my two Soccer War Corsairs – one Honduran and one El Salvadoran – I have to say they are two of my favorite builds to date (if I don’t ruin the El Salvadoran one getting it to the end zone!) Still got a partially-built 101 on the bench that I started middle of last year, and I’ve just started a Trumpeter JH-7A Flying Leopard – and have decals on the way for a Korean War Skyraider.
May your 2016 be rich with family, friends, and excellent builds!
