Steve. thank you. Im feeling better with other types of acrylics.

keavdog. thank you . I like this kit, I bought two more. The plastic is on the soft side. The # 11 blade cuts very easy. The only issue I had was with the props they are one piece but attached to the sprue in between the blades on the hub. Once thier cut off the sprue I used a round sanding stick to get at, but its a nice kit.

Thanks y'all. Mustang1989, the issue with the Tamiya Mustang was self-induced. Badly sprayed primer to go under Alclad. That P-51D is the second one on the shelf along side a B/C Mustang. I have a second D-model underway right now.

Nearsightedjohn, I've seen those Chevy kits, your's is terrific. The first car I ever drove was my grandfather's 1948 four door sedan Chevy back around '60 or '61. I need to get one of those kits soon.

OK. In the stash: Way too much to build in one lifetime...

Very good lookin' carrier GM.

Mach and Frank both have some great builds as well.

Frank: Hopefully nothing gave you too much trouble on that Tamiya Mustang as far as assembly is concerned. I've had NOTHING but good fortune out of Tamiya offerings.

Cool carrier GM - I like all the tiny Panthers.

Mach - love the tomcat and that tornado is wild.

Frank - that gundam guy startled me, nice save on the mustang and cool Redtail

 

Thanks,

John

Hmmm. My last three models.

A Gundam from Bandai...

 .

A Tamiya P-51D saved from the recycle bin after everything that could go wrong did go wrong...

 .

Another Red Tail What-If. What if the 332 FG received P-80's to go up against Luftwaffe Me 262's. This is what I imagine 1Lt. Charles White's P-80 would have looked like...

Here's my last one.

 

Revell 1/542 classic USS Midway from the late '50s.

I added a full hull and below waterline details, improved the guns, added landing gear to the jets and used a PE set.

 Modeling is an excuse to buy books.

Those are pretty awesome Justin. I like the A-7

 

Thanks, ModelCrazy!  It's actually an A6, but compliment understood!

I dot inspitation for that build after seeing a photo of an intruder being loaded on the cat for a morning launch, in 1980, just after the failed rescue attempt of our hostages in Iran, and loved the idea of ID stripes, similar to the invasion stripes....

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.

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
