Happy New year! Let's get started!
So here are the first 4 kits I intend to build this year. They are all gifts from my wife and kids, who have always supported my hobby. I decided to start with the Pan Am Clipper from 2001. A simple kit, just a few pieces, but as with most Sci Fi kits, you better be ready to sand, and sand some more. The fit is actually not too bad, but it still had a step here a gap there. However a little time and primer and you are ready to paint! This was only 3 modeling sessions, just what the doctor ordered after a year of more complex builds! I think "Digger" will be next, then one of the cars! I plan on finishing all 4 by Spring, wish me luck!
It looks like you have a good plan... 🙂 and some equally good models to run with. I remember building the Revell
"California Charger" top fuel rail as a kid. It was a really cool model ... and it was similar to the "Snakes" Yellow Feather.
Please keep us posted with updates my friend.
I remember when "Digger" was a new model!
I hope you'll keep us in the loop as these are finished.
Hi Rob. Really looking forward to see the 2001 Clipper - with us into the new year and the RAF Group Build winding up I’ll be ramping up the ‘iModeler at the Movies’ Group - so it’s really great to see your ‘Orion’.
Looking forward to seeing your work (and some good beer recommendations!) develop.
I forgot about the imodeler at the movies group build I guess I am in without even knowing it!
Nice! I refurbished the old Aurora Clipper kit awhile back, It's some where on this site.
Very good plan and some nice kits to take off in the new year. The Pan-Am clipper is interesting, I look forward to your progress. Cheers!
Nice eclectic group to start off with!
