Last Year's Builds-The Real World Batch
« on: January 14, 2019, 01:33:59 AM »
First build in far too many years was a Tamiya 1/48 F4U


Followed by a Tamiya F-16CJ


Hasegawa A-4E....one of my favorite kits ever.


Hasegawa Spitfire Mk.IX


Tamiya F-84G


Hasegawa P-40E


Tamiya A-1E


Airfix 1/48 Sea Fury.  A gorgeous kit!!


Tamiya 1/48 Wildcat.  Actually a VERY mild Whif...it's the wrong Mark for the decals. 


Hasegawa 1/48 Typhoon Mk.1B


Airfix 1/48 P-40B.  Another nice kit, though not quite as good as the Sea Fury.


That's it for the real world stuff...my handful of 2018 What-If? builds in another thread.

I can't pick a favorite, but the F-84G and the two P-40s caught my eye.

I've never seen a desert P-40 done better!

The early one is very nice too and in a bit of a different scheme too.

Beautiful builds, all of them, &, as a punter, I have no clear favourite - far too close to call! :icon_alabanza: :icon_alabanza:
