Progress Report

After a very long period of being dormant, I’ve actually made some progress. I have six models ready for the spray booth:

1/48 Tamiya Sherman: Great kit and easy build. Nothing bad to say.
1/48 Tamiya T-34/76: Ditto. Great kit and easy build. Nothing bad to say.
1/48 Academy P-38F/G: Easy build and parts fit is good.
1/48 Italeri Grippen: Awful kit. Poor parts fit, soft plastic. Lacks detail. Wouldn’t recommend this one.
1/35 Tamiya T-72M: Older kit but easy build and everything went together nicely.
1/35 Trumpter SA-6: Parts for parts sake. Not a great kit but not bad. Lots of work and glad it’s all together.

If I can carve out the time in this next month, I’m hoping to get them all painted and finished. My 2018 count will be six (as opposed to zero completed builds in 2017!)

Wish me luck…

  1. Nice production line!

  2. Anyone who talks about an Academy P-38 “fitting good” has my deepest respect!

  3. Well done, Bill! Those missiles look very menacing and interesting.

    • I fly DCS World against these SA-6’s and they’re nothing to be trifled with. Despite their age, they’re still quite deadly at short ranges/low altitudes. It’s a lot of kit for this non-armor modeler. Nothing like a Tamiya kit. Lots of parts and really glad to have moved it to the easy and fun stage of painting.

  4. Good to see you building again. Interesting projects.
