3 possibilities, few likely successes... :)
« on: April 04, 2018, 04:17:52 AM »
I've got three older builds I'd like to complete this year, but, lets face it, if I get either one done, I'm ahead of the game.

I have a Fantastic Plastic's Ithacus suborbital transport in 1/288 scale. I have a lot done, but getting the thing smooth enough to paint is proving to be tough. The SOB is fighting me all the way. Seeing as I made the master, not having a copy built of my own is rather embarrassing, but there it is.

I have my stretched recce STRV-103 model that is painted and decaled and just needs weathering and final assembly. That one has a good chance of getting off the slipways this year.

I also have my Israeli Panther WHIF that is painted and in need of decals. The finish did not come out to my satisfaction on this and I am tempted to strip it and repaint. If that happens, the chances of me finishing this kit this year plummet drastically...

There. I've publicly said I want to finish all three. Watch me get neither done in the end.  :icon_sueno:

Ah well, the shelf of procrastination awaits one and all if need be...
