Your Best Build

Recommended Posts

"Best build"? Errrmmm, hasn't happened yet, I'm still building!

:-)

 

However, for giggles, I present, M'Lud, exhibit 'A'.

Not in the LSM league, it is one in an occasional series of commissions.

Tamiya 1/48 and truly a pearl of a kit. You can never have enough F4U-1s!

My best build is yet to come.  For me, each completed build is an exercise in new techniques.  Always fun to take a little trip out of my comfort zone.  My skill-sets are a continuous work in progress.  Always developing, always improving.

 

This is may not be my best build but it is certainly my favorite build.  2012 my return to plastic toy planes after a 30 + year hiatus began with this conversion.  Not counting a restoration of a Monogram TBD1 kit my Dad built 25 years ago.  This A6M2-N project had it's great successes, quasi failures, angst and recovery.

Apologizes for the not so good pics, I am much smarter now.

Snap!

Same-same, Rick. When I kick off another kit I'm fooling myself thinking I'll stick to what I've done already, keep it off the beaten path.

Always hit a snag, find s/thing new I have figure out, or a particular part mocks me.

 

That's how I roll.
