I've promised that I'd post a few photos...well, here they are. I hope y'all enjoy them!
Hasegawa's 1/72 scale DAP Beaufighter 21. I built this one to illustrate my "Model Building 101" seminar at the 2016 IPMS/USA National Convention we hosted in Columbia.
A Revell AG 1/72 MiG-21 F-13 Fishbed E, built as the subject of Operation Have Doughnut. I used the Vallejo Metal Color acrylics on this one, and I really like this paint. The best acrylic metallics I've tried, to be sure!
Dragon's 1/35 StuG.IV. Yep, this is the subject of a 2010 AMPS Central South Carolina group build. Yes, it still isn't finished. But it is painted now, and hopefully I'll have some time to wrap it up.
Hasegawa's 1/72 F-111F, to be finished as Karma-52, the aircraft shot down in Operation El Dorado Canyon. I'm a little further along from when the photo was taken--I have the beastie primed and paint is in work.
Special Hobby's 1/72 TR-1/ER-2 in progress. This one, too, is further along--I have it in gray primer now. There are a bunch of fiddly things to be added, then I can paint and finish it up.
Another Special Hobby kit, this time their 1/48 Macchi C.200. This is waiting for another attempt at a paint job. Wish me luck--third time is the charm, so they say!
Dragon's 1/700 USS Independence being converted to USS Cowpens. I have some fiddly bits to bend (see my earlier essay on PE and how it is the work of Satan) and paint.
Aeroclub's Gloster Gamecock in 1/48 scale. First vac kit in a loooooong time, but I'm having fun with it.
Trumpeter's 1/35 SA-2 Guideline missile. You guessed it, primed and waiting for final paint.
A recent completion--Academy's reissue of the Hobbycraft Bf-109T-2. I built this one in about three hours so I could use it as the subject of an airbrushing clinic at the hobby shop. I think it came out well-there are some errors, both Academy's and my own, but it looks nice on the shelf...
Last one for now. Here is a Revell AG 1/72 F4U-1 Corsair (white) and an Otaki (actually, Arii-boxed) 1/48 F4U-1 Corsair (gray). I'm trying to bring the Arii (now Micro Ace--you need a program to keep up!) line into the shop, and wanted to have something to show folks what they got in the kit. I spied the Revel kit, and it has the same markings I plan on using on the Otaki kit, so I thought I'd do a two-fer and have an illustration of scale to go along with the deal.
So, there you are.
Thanks for reading. As always, be good to one another. I bid you Peace.
