Here we go, my last three builds.

First an old Revell P-47D Razorback. It represents a fictional Thunderbolt of the 332 Fighter Group at Ramitelli, Itally, in 1944.

 .

Next an Accurate Miniatures F-6B Mustang in Invasion Stripes.

 .

Last, a Tamiya P-51C of the 118 TRS, China, 1945.

OK. On the bench: Way too much to build in one lifetime...

Why do I keep missing these builds?

Bish, great looking builds sir. Is that Warrior your old ride?

Willuride, Yes Love it. The Zero and Falcon are my favs.

Jeez Frank, you threw those in while I was posing. Gotta like Stangs and of course a Jug. Yes

Nice work Frank.  The color modulation on the redtail looks great.

Thanks,

From my "summer of paper," all paper/card models, one kit, two scratchbuilds.

From the kit, HMV's 1/250 Spanish-American war era armored cruiser U.S.S Maine, which famously came to grief in Havana harbor in February 1898:

Proceeding from that build, a scratchbuilt 1/72 version of the steam torpedo launch the Maine had originally been intended to deploy:

And for a separate project -- a planned scratchbuild of a Civil-War-era Great Lakes sidewheel steamer -- a 'walking beam' steam engine (minus boiler, firebox and some plumbing), in approximately 1/250 scale (again):

In common with many American-designed ships of the era, the steamer will have the diamond-shaped 'beam' of the engine clearly in view poking out above the midships deckhouse...hence the bother to detail it out, to at least some degree.

I can't share my last one since it's for a review and I don't think it would be right to post it prior to publication.

But the three prior to it are:

C5 Speedster

CBR Fireblade

(More about this model here: https://finescale.com/product-info/kit-reviews/2020/09/workbench-review-tamiya-fireblade)

Starsky & Hutch Zebra 3 Torino

Thanks guys! Those 1/12 Tamiya bikes (and the larger ones too) are excellent kits. Anything in the series after #76 is just great, (earlier ones are really good too) and they continue to get more impressive with the level of engineering and detailing in each new release. The Fireblade is the best engineered motorcycle kit I've built to date and I've built well over 50 in the series.
