Happy New Year, Everybody! Starting 2017 by finishing stalled 2016 projects.
January 2, 2017 in Aviation
I’m going to start 2017, by finishing up a couple projects that I had begun, in 2016.
Last part of the year was hectic, and time at the bench was just not an option. However, as the new year starts, time is freeing up, and the opportunity to get building stuff has come back around.
The first project, is Great Wall’s, TBD-1 “Devastator”. I am finding this kit to a very well engineered kit. It has a lot of parts, and the fit is pretty good. One thing I will point out, is that the masks they give you, SUCK!! Otherwise the model is pretty darn good.
The second one is, ICM’s 1:48 scale Dornier Do-17Z-2. I was very excited to see this kit on the shelf at the LHS. I bought it, got it home, and started on her straight away. The detail is nice, and the fit is pretty good too. Plus, it don’t look like a flying banana like the Hobby Craft kit does. The build so far has gone well, and I’m looking forward to getting back at her too.
Third and fourth, are both the Hasegawa and Tamiya kits respectively. Both are Supermarine “Spitfires” Mk.Vb Trops. I wanted to do a comparison build between the two. Both are building well, but I do like the Tamiya kit a wee bit better. One will be in RAF markings, the other in 31st FG, USAAF markings.
That’s the plan so far, and a few others I plan on as well….unless life get;s in the way again. 😉
