Quoted Text

Im going to getting off to a very slow start this year due to work and moving house commitments so my list is small and I'll build on it from there.
To finish....my Luftwaffe figure which I work on while Im touring.(the hotel room build)
To start,when I get moved in and a modelling room/space set up.
Airfix Bird Dog 1:72 for Vietnam Campaign
Tamiya P47 Razorback 1:72 for Tankbusting/Strafing Campaign.
Tamiya Spitfire MkI 1:72 with Aires engine/cockpit/gun bays.
Revell Wright Brothers Flyer
The pick of my 1:72 WWI planes that Ive bought off Ebay recently.
Hopefully I will be able to start building at home again in late Feb.
The wait is killing me!

To finish-

The small vignette I'm working on (1/35)
Tamiya 1/35 Universal carrier
Tamiya 1/35 M13/40
Tamiya 1/35 Tiger 1 (early) -Just the wheels and tracks to do
Tamiya 1/35 Sdkfz.7 Half track
Tamiya 1/35 250/1 Half track
Airfix 1/72 LCM


Complete build-

Tamiya 1/35 Wespe
Dragon 1/35 Jagd Tiger





I don't really need to cut and paste, my answer (unfortunately) is Nothing, nothing finished at all. but.......

The Universal Carrier has reached the painting stage, and my wespe is half built, so I haven't been sitting on my hands. I have also built the turret on a Trumpeter KV, and stripped down and rebuilt a 1/16 Tamiya Tiger 1, so although nothing is finished, I have done something, and anyway i've got an excuse....... I'm getting married................
