2012....not a very productive year really mainly due to problems spraying paint and varnish (cold, damp and compressor problems), having said that I did do 21 kit reviews for Model Military Int'l plus two full articles so at least my loft is well insulated :o)
On this blog there are projects that I started this year but never finished due the issues detailed above; The Tristar Storch needs a complete repaint and the dihedral (or lack of) fixing, plus there are two visible sink marks on the top of the wings so that's been moved to the Shelf of Doom; The 1/48 Hasegawa P-51D has been sanded back to try and remove the gritty look and that has been fairly successful, the only thing that spoils it is the star and bar decal has a triangular looking divot in it where the Johnsons Kleer melted when I tried to steam the decal on....bugger. A least it will be finished and sit on the shelf; The Hasegawa Ju87B is ongoing and up to the painting stage so maybe that will get finished in the new year and finally the AFV Club 1/35 Sturmtiger which HAS had the base coat put on but little else due to lack of interest.  Sue me! :o)
2013 looks to be another great year for modellers with LOADS of new stuff coming out but technically speaking I really should'nt buy anymore kits ...YEAH RIGHT! LOL!!!! Revell are doing their 1/32 BAe Hawk in RAF camo, Meng have released the Me 410, Airfix have an 1/48 Gloster Javelin in the pipeline.....lots of shiny things :o)
Have a great Christmas people and here's to 2013!
