2022 In Review

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 [...]

Happy New Years, and my resolution is.....

My modeling resolution is to build some fun kits before I tackle any long projects, which are enjoyable, and rewarding, but I never find them "fun". So I got out a bunch of my classics I knew I planned building straight out of [...]

2021 collection of WW2 fighters in 1:48 scale

So, this is my collection started in 2020 with the great lockdown. I'll let you guess which one is the first model I completed. The collection grows and shrinks, some of the models I gifted over time. Some of the models here will be [...]

Some Interesting Projects in 2021

I completed fewer kits in 2021 than during the prior Covid-lockdown year. I tried some new things though--a comparison side-by-side build of Bf-109 kits, my first 1/48 scale aircraft in years (with extensive weathering to boot), my first [...]

My 2021- The Good, the Bad, the Lazy

Thought I would post my 2021 builds including a couple of misses (learning opportunities as a wise one would say). The "lazy" part of the title is that I build almost all my aircraft in flight but managed to only build one stand [...]

2021 Modeling ReviewFour Essexes, Nine Aircraft and a 88mm

The first half of 2021 was the same as 2020 - multiple 1/700 Essex-class carrier builds. But the second half was something completely different. The first several months of 2021 were devoted to finishing a "double build" of the [...]

My 2021 Builds

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 [...]
