Wow, thank you all for the fantastic replies! I think this is the most responses I've gotten anywhere!

Yeah, 33 builds this year. I think I could have done more, but the large four-engined aircraft, all those Russian eight-wheeled trucks and the tank transporters all slowed me down and kept me from finishing more.

Kevin thanks! I'm glad to have gotten this many done considering.

Joe, you may have inly finished three, but man what amazing masterpieces they are!

Thanks Kari! I find the diversity helps keep all of them fresh; greatly reduciung the burnout factor.

John, yeah I got a lot of targets! LOL! I gotta have something for my attack aircraft to play with! LOL! To be honest, I wish I had been able to stay hard at the bench; too many times I was dealing with too much and that kept me from really cutting loose sometimes.

Stuart, thanks! I agree, the newest model companies are making some amazingly detailed 1/72 scale models, almost as fully detailed as 1/35th scaled models!

Medic, don't give up! Your work is too high quality to let my meager efforts stop you!

Thank you Clint! I'm happy with the results. And with the nine or so armor models already base painted before I left on vacation; Ive got a strong start for next year.

Lyle, thanks! I appreciate the compliments on my work. So far, my vacation is going exceptionally well; I even finally met one of my newest grand nephews!

Thank you Blacksheep and Johnny!
