Hi fellas !
As many of us, I was away from the bench for a few years then got back in May 22, now Sept. 23 here’s what I’ve finished so far :
Tamyia Bradley M2A2
Tamyia M51 IDF
Tristar Panzer 38(t) Ausf. E/F
Tamyia Panzer III N
Trumpeter M1127 Stryker
Academy M1151 & LiveResin RWS
Dragon Panzer 38(t) Ausf. S (bare kit)
Academy Merkava II D
Trumpeter BTR-70 early
Dragon Panther II
That’s it since May 22, have a lot on the bench too, keeping myself busy
That’s an impressive amount since last year. Lots of variety in subject and plenty of great finishes to boot.
That’s an awesome accomplishment!
Eighteen or so models completed in that time span! Well build and the models look good!
Wishing I could be half as productive!
Nicely done models, welcome back to the bench.
I remember your user name as a campaign leader on the old forum.
Yes, you are correct I was Campaign Admin for some years !
Thanks Karl, I’m very happy to be back building.
I admit it was a little hard to be back, I was always second guessing myself,
Somethings we forget after years away from the bench, that’s why it’s crucial to always have a Tamyia kit in stash, it’s much easier to get back with a Tamyia kit !!
Yes, 18 models in 16 months… I still have about 16 active builds on the bench at various stages.
I tend to start a few kits at the same time, working on multiple builds I tend to work a little on one, very simple tasks ( glueing 2 or 3 parts, painting one, put everything inside the box, work on another one for a few minutes ) so that 2 or 3 hrs at the bench I manage to work on maybe 5 or 6 different builds.
Some kits are pristine like the Military Parade BTR-70, others have a bit more weathering.
Mostly filters,washes, chipping, dirt and mud
Lots of great builds there and some really nice painting and finishing… you’ve been busy, but very productive …welcome back…
Good stuff john,must be good to get back at the bench,i missed 2 years myself when I moved.
It’s nice to be back
To me it was a little hard to come back, a few months before I was thinking of selling most of the kits. I was having doubts if I could be back at the bench, but now, looking back at it, it’s all about having the right mindset, be focused, be sharp.
It feels good to be back at the bench.
That’s quite a lot. Keep up the good work (and joy)
Finished another these last weeks,
Academy / Legend Conversion Magach 7 A
Academy Merkava IV
I have around 18 to 20 projects on the bench, I will post them when they are finished.
Another one finished, Airfix PR XIX Spitfire 1:72nd Swedish Airforce 1957
