2020 production line
« on: December 29, 2020, 12:34:22 AM »
Thanks to the COVID-19 lockdown slowing work, and taking a month or so off last year, I was able to outdo my ususal meager output and finish off a few. I have also been busy replacing missing photos (thanks facebook :angry:) with flickr links.

The RAAF Maritime Patrol Vickers Wellesley was among them:



Followed by a Belgian example:



Another maritime patrol bird was the Amiot 143:



And still in that vein was the radial engined Fairey Battle IIA of RAF Coastal Command:



Perhaps getting tired of flying low over the oceans, I decided to fettle up a high-altitude variant of the Iskra:



Thanks to parts donated by Captain Canada (Todd 'Toad' Pomerleau) I was able to slap together a Farley Flutterbug:



And since he gave me 2 Lysander fuselages the Farley Frigatebird came to fruition:



Probably the last for the year (probably...) is the hastily slapped together Mitsibishi A6M2 Zero. Literally



It's been a weird year for all of us, and we lost Brian Da Basher partway through it. Let's hope things get better. We're past the solstice, so for those of us in the northern hemisphere the daylight will last longer each day until late June. It's one of the few things that gives this cold-averse Canadian a little hope. Every day that I go out to the car those canoe tiedown straps taunt me.
