2022 mini achievements.
In this first year of Our Lord when we could get out again ! in 22, and away from home a lot.
I did this ! Don’t Laugh !
Lacking time for the hobby I wanted to clear what I now know is called “ shelf of doom “ and “ Stash “ I realised I am not alone in having gotten over board a bit in this nomenclature !
At that, small kits on my selected themes were completed. More or less. all are under $6 . Get me mileage w.o. Having to do huge saves. I tried to use the decals but most being 50 years old failed.
The M40 had disintegrated Tracks. Figuring out to scratch make an acceptable replacement.
In 2023 I may open up the large and expensive kits and try for the best.
Meanwhile, my themes are.
Land war Western Europe WW2
Battle of the Atlantic.
Kits presented are:
Matchbox Char Bis- Renault FT-17 1/76 diorama.
Airfix Martlet 1/72 Fleet Air Arm
Frog Tarpon. 1/72 Fleet Air Arm
Airfix Half Track 1/76 Bastogne
Matchbox M40 G.M.C. 1/76 Bastogne
Heller Breguet 693. 1/72
I encountered numerous little issues that needed fixing. Had fun. Did not take this batch too seriously . Looks good on my limited shelf space ( From far away )
I feel timid at times posting on this Site but it encourages People like Me to get ( Back ) into the Hobby and create connections.
Beginners and pro’s alike meet on this great and supportive website and community.
Happy New Year 2023 to all !
