JB's 2021 builds
Posted by JBRaider on Saturday, January 1, 2022 6:18 AM

Happy new year all!

While I have lurked on these forums for over 10 years I never got around to joining and posting until a little over a year ago. Most of my activity has been as part of the group builds as I don't post consistently and I don't feel my offerings justify their own thread.

After looking over my builds I was suprised at the number I completed this last year so here goes.

Dragon 1/72 ME 1101 for the Messerschmitt GB

Airfix 1/72 Spitfire Mk 1a for the Supermarine/Vickers GB

Moebius 1/72 BSG Viper 

For the Larry Wolf Close Air Support GB I did the Academy 1/72 P-47. I was proud of the results on this one as the tail checkers were all painted because I didn't trust the academy decals 

Back to BSG with another Moebius offering, the 1/72 Cylon Raider

Tamiya 1/72 N1K1 Shinden

Hasegawa 1/72 Jaguar Mk 1a for the Desert Storm GB

Hasegawa 1/72 FW-190 D

Airfix 1/72 Curtis Hawk

And finished the with another build for the Supermarine/Vickers GB. An Eduard Spitfire Mk IXe 


 2022 I will try to add an armor kit or two and even step out of my comfort zone and try a larger scale aircraft.

Very impressive!! Big respect on the paint job for the P47!
