Jeaton's year in review

Postby jeaton01 » Thu Dec 31, 2020 10:30 pm

I didn't think I built too many models this year but I guess I did. Didn't do very much R/C building though.

Fine Molds 1/48 A5M4
Image

Fine Molds 1/48 A7M1 Reppu
Image

Academy 1/72 CCKW 353
Image

Tamiya 1/48 CCKW 353 Airfield Fuel Truck
Image

Tamiya 1/48 Kurogane
Image

Tamiya/Legend 1/35 M74 Tank Retriever
Image

Tamiya/Gaso-Line 1/48 CCKW 353 Bomb Truck
Image

Tamiya 1/32 F-15's. 3 were built up for movie props. All three are built, one C is finished completely (pictured), the second C awaits decals, and the E is awaiting painting specifications. I was surprised at some of the challenges these kits brought, they are somewhere between the Lancaster and the Betty in quality. A 1/8 square ID brass tube runs in from between the nozzles up to where the engine fans are, and a1 1/8 square keystock bar slides in to support the model for filming. It is photoshopped out in this photo.

Monogram/Fox 3 1/48 P-80A-1
Image

Tamiya 1/48 F-84G
Image

Italeri 1/72 Horsa

Image

Fine Molds 1/48 Mitsubishi Ka14
Image

Tamiya 1/48 G4M1 Betty
Image

Monogram Me 109E Refurbished 1965 build
Image

Airfix 1/72 P-51D
Image

Accurate Miniatures 1/48 P-51A
Image

Planet 1/48 PT-19
Image

Monogram 1/48 SNJ-3
Image

Valom 1/72 YFM-1B
Image

Tamiya 1/72 P-47D-15
Image

With my grandson Alex, 5 years old now:
Meng Kids B-17
Image

Monogram 1/48 F4U-4 (This one is way past its prime compared to the new mold kit I built way back when)
Image

Atlantis Aurora 1/48 HUP-2
Image

Hawk 1/48 F-84G, for some reason one of my favorite old kits.
Image

With grandson Isaac, also 5:
Atlantis/Aurora 1/48 HUP-2. The paint job was strictly specified by Alex, he made me shake on the deal. He alone placed the polka dot masks.
Image

And with granddaughter Audrey, 7.
Revell 1/32 F4F-4, painted with custom mixed craft paints. I applied a lot of super glue on the inside of the wing joints when Audrey wasn't looking.

Thanks, John, and you are very kind. I did have a lot of fun modeling this year, and I was almost as prolific as any given 6 month period when I was 10 years old, in numbers built. :lol:

My goodness, what a collection! Terrific work!

Looks like you had a great year of builds.
