ok, I'll jump in on the end of year review....
Posted by Justinryan215 on Thursday, December 31, 2020 10:05 AM

These are the kits I'd completed this year:

This is the one that started it all....Built for the 'Lockdown Group Build'

as was this one:

Built this one as part of the 'VTOL Group Build'

This next pair was built for 'The Forgotten War Group Build'

This was just a  "Hey...That's Kool!"build:

I put this little A-6 scene together modeled after an image I found on the internet from the 1980 hostage rescue attempt in Iran

Old Timey Fiddler:

Wanted to see what all the Gundam Hype was about....

I built this little Wildcat for the 'Weekend Madness Group Build'

I put together this scene for a friend:

and my last 'completed' build of 2020:

 

 

I do have a couple of projects that got started, but not completed, including the Monogram ProModeler 1/48 scale ME262, a Hasegawa 1/72 scale A-7, a forced perspective t"Torpedo Attack on a Japanese Dreadnaught", and a Kraken and pirate ship scene that may see completion in the next year....

Great stuff, love the fiddler and plague doctor (he fits this year quite well).

My favourite would have been either the Korean War dogfight or the old man playing the fiddle (I really like it), but for the first one - the Quack in the sewer/dungeon - that one gets my vote.  It is so well done, and so atmospheric - especially with the lighting effect - it's just great.

Thanks All!  I was definitely able to complete many more builds this year with the lockdowns in place, and generally not being able to do much in a group setting ...we spent most of the year meeting virtually in my cub scout pack, so, as cubmaster, there was less time needed preparing and emcee-ing live events...but damn do I miss those scouts!  The lockdowns have definitely taken a mental toll on many of us, and I, for one, felt it.  My escape from those feelings were definitely my Workbench!

I have a few upgrades and revamps to my workbench in the works...so here's to a better and more prolific 2021,
