My Three for 2020
Posted by mustang1989 on Friday, January 1, 2021 2:59 PM

This last year all started with my Jo-Han Maverick build ( which dang near killed me. lol). I ran into some snags with this one that caused me to break out with a couple of diversion builds to keep the forward modeling momentum going.

2-3 builds a year is about typical out of me as slow as I build.

My 1/25 Jo-Han...ish Maverick:

Diversion Build #1. My 1/25 Revell Ram Air Trans Am:

Diversion Build #2. My Ryefield 1/35 VW Beetle in Wermacht Service:

Despite its small scale it was already packed with detail....and then I added some more:

Thanks John. That VW was the easiest out of all three builds.

Considering the level of detail you pack into every project, I think 3 is a lot.

Love that Maverick!  Reminds me of my first car, a '72 Comet with a 302.

Excellent builds Joe. That Maverick should do 9's in the quarter. Oh wait it's not real?

   Nice grouping, car builders alway amaze me. I have a 1/1 representation of automobile basics sitting in the driveway.....yet interior colors, engine detail, suspension...quite literally escapes me. Beautiful and well done builds.

we're modelers it's what we do
