My 2021 Builds

January 1, 2022 · in Aviation · · 18 · 1.6K

These are my builds for 2021. My main goals were to have at least one build for each month, at least one multi-eng plane for the year, at least one vacuform build for the year and to try to have a resin build in which that would be my first. I met all goals and a bit more.

It was an interesting year for me, I wanted to venture into other country's Air Forces. Out of the 16 builds, 12 different nations markings were used.

AMT/FROG 1/72 Macchi MC 202 (Italy)

  9. Great work Bob - you've had a busy 2021 - Love the Wessex and the Macchi but all of your builds are very nicely done. Keep it up.

    • Anthony, thank you. I really enjoyed building the Wessex. The Macchi surprised me on how well the wings were engineered to put together. I also felt the same on Frog’s Hurricane.
