Modelcrazy's 2017 builds
Posted by modelcrazy on Monday, January 01, 2018 11:49 AM

This time of year again and it's been a busy one. I have moved down to Dallas and waiting on the lung transplant list and am on disability since I can't do much strenuous activity right now, but I can sit at my makeshift workbench and build.

This is the year I get my life back!

I completed 18 this year, which seems to be about my normal.

1/700 Trumpeter Hornet Doolittle Raid

1/700 Dragon LA class attack submarine

Dragon 1/8 Ironman Igor armor

  

1/48 Hasegawa Macchi 202 Folgore.

1/72 Hasegawa A6M5 Model 52 Type 0.

1/72 Airfix B5N Kate.

1/32 Hasegawa Mk.V Spitfire

1/72 Hasegawa B5N Kate

1/48 Hobby Boss P-47D

1/72 Hasegawa GR.4 Tornado

1/72 Cyber Hobby Aichi D3A Val.

1/35 Italeri 38t Hetzer.

1/144 Revell F-5

Outstanding work Steve Bow DownBow Down...I am still impressed on how well you made those 1/144 look. Every build looks amazing...you know I love you water dio's.

Happy New Year friend...and you are correct, this is your year.

A cracking line up there Steve. Your water effects are amongst the best i have seen, and the chipping on the Zero is still impressive.

I had not seen the Ironman figure before, really nice work.

Best of luck this year, hope the transplant comes soon.

Impessive as always.  Followed most of them, but a couple there I missed.

Hope you were able to bring and find room for most of the bench.  Hoping your turn comes quickly and your recovery is short.

Prayers and best wishes my friend.

I have been in awe of your builds during the past year; so many, so well done and you're always going forward with techniques. You are an inspiration!

Good to hear that you're in line to address your health issues. My sincere wishes for a speedy resolution and recovery.

Keep on showing us how good scale modelling can be!

Wow, all 18 really look great.  I particularly like the 1/700 Hornet and the Macchi! Bring them by to the next meeting, I’d love to see them!  I think you may have brought some arctic temps down with you!  Big Smile

They say it's quality,not quantity, and yet you manage both. Hard to beat your water dios, all damn impressive. Fingers crossed for your wait.

Thanks MM and Templar.

An excellent batch of builds for this past year! Your work is as impressive as ever. Once your procedure is done and you’re on the road to a complete recovery, I’m sure that you will grace us with many more outstanding builds in the coming years.

Holy cow, Steve!  I have followed many of these builds, but not all.  I am in awe of your skill with the smaller scales, and the water dios are incredible.

Glad you were able to bring the bench and kits.  Without them, I would fear for your sanity.  Big Smile 

Hope the transplant is soon, and recovery quick.

Dwayne or Dman or just D.  All comments are welcome on my builds.

Stick, D and Steve, thanks. I have been wanting to do a water tut on YouTube but every time I want to start I'm not sure it's going to turn out well but when I'm finished I wish I had LOL.

I have a few water dios I'm planning this year so I'll have to record one.

BTW I was told this morning that I've placed 3rd on the transplant list so it should'nt be too much longer now, then I get my life back.

Amazing work there Steve, thanks for posting this I've only seen part of them. 

 

Hopefully you'll be up for the transplant soon and the surgery and recovery will go off with flying colours.

Very productive year, and excellent work! I've always liked your water scenes. So much so, that you inspired me to try creating some myself.
