I didn't think I had too many completed builds this year but it looks like I was wrong. 

In no particular order, here they are 

Bandai SD-MG Freedom Gundam

I started a lot more than these kits so I'll have some projects ready to hit the ground running in the new year.

Some very interesting and unique builds for the year - so very well done. I still just marvel at how you keep so many projects going at the same time and all seems to flow so well. 🏆

Peter, the challenge for me is to just keep going through a build. It's too easy for me to just switch subjects, often for no rhyme or reason.

Very cool!  How do you like building the Gundam models?  They seem really interesting, but I'm trying not to open a new gateway for hoarding kits.

Most Gundam kits are impressive. The fit is great, almost no filler is needed. They're a great stress free build, especially the newer ones. 

The one I did didn't require any masking for the paint job. You may have to break out the same colour a few times but it really simplifies things.

Bandai do several grades of kits. So they offer the same subject but in varying levels of complexity. They will also replace older versions with improved new ones. Perfect Grade is the best and largest scale but also the most expensive. Master Grade are next and those are to me, the ideal level of detail, quality and price. 

That being said, I think that's the first Gundam kit I've finished in over a decade.

There is not only Gundam out there, to leave the trotten path, Mike. You could also try Maschinen Krieger. There are tons of kits out there in different scales, but mainly in 1/20. Main producers are Hasegawa and Wave, but there are many other brands available. Most are 1/20 scale, which give a lot of freedom, when it comes to painting experiments, others are in 35 scale, which naturally allows some bashing and dio opportunities. The mainstream kits are of the same quality, Carl described.

i once build a Hasegawa AmmoKnight as a stipple on brush painting experiment and loved the scale and the kit. I have some more in stash and welcome the variety.
 

Cheers Rob
