A Year In Builds – 2016
December 27, 2016 in Aviation
I knew I would finish at least one of the 3 in-progress builds during the Christmas break, so wanted to wait until I got that done to add to the “year in the life of a modelaholic” mania sweeping iModeler this December! With my post of the Myrsky earlier today, that milestone has ended, so here’s a look back. This was actually my most prolific year in quite a while, but part of that is due to the fact that the looooonnng time it took me to get the two Corsairs done was mostly spent in 2015, but they counted as January completions.
Anyway, here’s the line-up:
Hasegewa’s F4U-1 modified as closely as possible into a Honduran F4U-5N.
Minicraft/Hasegewa’s F4U-1 modified into an FG1-D in El Salvadoran colors.
Trumpter’s JH-7A Flying Leapard
Testor/Italeri’s RF-4E in Luftwaffe Norm72 scheme – done for the Phantom II Group Build
Ace (Hasegawa rebox) P-47D
Testor’s Kfir C-2 in the livery of Ecuador
AviationUSK’s VL Myrsky II
I’ve got an aggressive line-up for 2017 – hoping I can knock them off! I love the hobby, and love the companionship with others who do also, as I have experienced on iModeler. I look forward to spending another year oogling all of your builds, and sharing my efforts as well.
