Stikpusher 2020-Pass In Review!

Postby Stikpusher » Wed Dec 30, 2020 9:30 pm

This year I completed a modest six builds. But I was not able to start building until mid March after getting my workbench set up in my new home, so that works out to one completion every month and a half or so. Of the six, only one was a mostly completed build from a previous year. All the rest were started here, save for one, which was barely started, and I had to go and fix stuff on that one. So here we go:

Image

1, Monogram 1/48 A-7B

Image

2, Tamiya 1/48 DAK Kübelwagen

Image

3, Testors (Hawk) 1/48 V-1 - the rollover build started in another year

Image

4, Heller 1/35 Char Somua S35

Image

5, Dragon 1/35 M46

Image

6, Academy 1/35 M151A1 (last but not least)

One other bit of positive news is that only one kit that I started in 2020 was not completed. And that one is close enough to the finish line to be done quick enough in the next few weeks. Unlike many previous years...

Thanks for looking... Happy New Years!

Great stuff Carlos. Really like the A7 and M46. Quality not quantity :) Good to see you back at the bench after your move.
Thanks,
John

The Monogram, Testors / Hawk and Heller builds are worthy of extra bonus points due to the way you bring them to life. It ain’t easy teaching old kits new moves. PM photos of the A7 when you get a moment. Cheers.

Six very beautiful builds Carlos!
March as one, Don't look back
Odin's sons... Attack!
Unleash hell! Do not repent! Warfare grants us no lament
Let your weapons slash and tear This is no place for fear
Hold the lines! Move as one! In unity our victory's won
Our shields will form a mighty wall
United we shall never fall

You are moving up to Master Level 7! Great work. Can’t pick a favorite.
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

Thanks guys! It was nice getting back into a modeling groove this year. Not to mention having the free time to do so when I pleased. This year I hope to keep up the quality while increasing the quantity by a few. :whistle:

Here’s to plans... :headslap: :giggles:
