2015 – My year in review
To all the authors, members and friends of iModeler - best wishes of a Happy New Year! Here's my modeling review of the period.
Firstly, I have finally completed my long-term build from last year, a 1/48 Tamiya Dewoitine D.520. This was finally finished in August, after a full year in the works.
That wasn't my only completion of the year, however. There has also been a 1/48 Hasegawa Bf 109G-6, a considerably quicker build that was finished in December.
...and here's my fairly advanced next project. Can you guess what it is?
Moving on to other events of the year, April brought a quick one-day visit to the Moson Model Show. An awesome experience and very inspirational.
In June, I've had my closest encounter with a Spitfire to date, at a local fly-in at Ska-Edeby. Seeing (and hearing) a Spitfire in flight is an awesome experience, but how about finding yourself unexpectedly at the end of a surprise "strafing run"? And THAT was low!
In July, holiday in the US, and a very pleasant day out at the Chino Air Museum under the expert guidance of none else but Mr @tcinla Tom Cleaver!
In November, a visit to the modeling show of shows - the IPMS UK Scale Modelworld in Telford. In the helpful company of @halvarvonflake Halvar von Flake. And we also managed a quick detour to the RAF Hendon museum!
In all, only two models finished but what an eventful and enjoyable year!
