GreySnake's completed 2020 builds
Posted by GreySnake on Saturday, January 2, 2021 1:03 PM
To my surprise I completed ten builds in 2020. I’ve been practicing a lot of new techniques so builds have been taking me much longer. The first four builds were holdovers from 2019 and were finished just to get them off the shelf not happy really happy with any of them.

1. Dragon Tiger I Ausf. E

 

2. Tamiya 1/35 Jagdpanzer 38t

 

3. Tristar Panzer I Ausf. A

 

4. Tamiya 1/35 Panzer II Ausf. A

 

5. Tamiya 1/35 T-55A for the Lockdown group build

 

6. Tamiya 1/35 Japanese Type 61 for the Japanese group build.

 

7. Dragon 1/35 Sherman MK. II for the British Army group build

 

8. Tamiya 1/35 M4A3 Sherman 105mm 

 

9. Tamiya 1/35 Stug IIi Ausf. G (Still needs figures)

 

10. Tamiya 1/35 Char B1 Bis

Some great builds GreySnake! Really like the zimmerit on the tiger and the ambush camo on the jagdpanzer.

Nice builds, GreySnake, and congratulations, that's a pretty good pace.

Excluding toy soldiers, I didn't finish a single thing in 2020.  I didn't start any builds, either, because I have at least a dozen stalled builds on my Shelf of Doom.  The oldest is at least ten years old now.

For 2021, I resolve to take four of those builds and finish them.  I hope to get back in the swing by doing so.

How do you guys complete so many quality builds in 365 precious days?   Im new (modeling for a little over a year) and completed 4 builds in 2020.  Obviously im not very efficient.  Those that posted 2020 builds are you guys retired?  How many hours per week do you dedicate to the bench?  I know it's not a quantity competition but the work you guys have posted is exceptional.   Im guessing I put in 7-10 hours a week with the bulk of that being Sundays.

That’s a good batch of builds for one year! Four completed sideliners, and six new starts is a good pace! I really like the Char, the Alamein Sherman, and the Type 61. May 2021 be even better for you!

I probably dont get more then 5 hours a week and much less in the month of December.

Great show there Greysnake, I love the Type 61 you did with us but the rest of your models look fantastic too! Heart
