2022 In Review

December 17, 2022 · in Aviation · · 14 · 0.7K

2022 was by far my most productive year in terms of modeling. I think being a part of this community played a big role in that. I was able to complete 12 kits and I think that my skills have really improved thanks to the work of the excellent modelers who post here daily that provide me with inspiration. All kits are and are either Airfix or Revell/Monogram except for the Hobby Boss P-47D and Tamiya F4-U1A

Merry Christmas and happy modeling!

  1. Looks like a good year’s output, David, well done, and thanks for sharing them with us.

  2. Excellent! As I recall the P-38 is Monogram?

    • Thanks @robertandy! Yes the NMF P-38 "Pacific Prowler" is a 1966 issue Monogram which had really good fit and was a fun build, the other "Stinger" was a more recent 2013 Revell which showed how much the molds had deteriorated over time and had some serious seams and gaps

  3. Wow. 12 models in a year! And two P-38s no less. terrific batch, David.
