I think #5 on that list is a year long project by itself, Fran!

One thing I'd like to do in 2019 is to actually try building an AFV. I say that every year, but it never, ever happens.

Do it!

How about British Cold War heavy-weights? Maybe with Stillbrew armour package, Barr & Stroud TOGS, etc. 
Takom, Friuls...<hint hint>

Resolutions are brilliant it’s just life gets in the way. Since going back to work on 2nd Jan, I think I have had 20 minutes at the bench so far this year...........and that’s including weekends......

That's not good, Mate.  At your current rate your max bench time for 2019 will be around 17.6 hours.

Another year has ticked over, and I managed to build five kits in 2018. That has been my best for many years, well actually since 2013! I made seven back that year. There are a few kits on my pile that I would love to tackle this, I would like to try to get 6-7 done. Last time I decided to do this in 2014, and I built nothing! So with ongoing back issues hopefully under control now and having my Mojo returned.

So these are the kits that I want to get done this year, in no particular order...

1. Meng Jagdpather

2. Rye Field Models Panther G

3. Trumpeter P-40B

4. Hasegawa P-40N (Currently on the Shelf of Doom)

5. ?

6. ?

 

So have you guys done this before and planned what you want to build for the year?

Well, I already have broken one of mine! I taped replacement CMK Cockpit for the Trumpeter P-40B together and put then put back into the box... The shallowness of the CMK pit still sticks out to me, when I have the time and energy will pick it up again and look at extending it.

No armor for me it turns out.  My year is full.  

I made the decision to cut the hole in the fuselage for the spotter’s window to force my decision on schemes. Now I need to fill all those side windows.

As much as I love wartime schemes, I really think different is good here.

I completely missed out on that Dakota  / Lisunov .  Considering the size of those kits, kitchen is the best place to work comfortably.  

Yup, an HPH kit.

And I can testify that HPH has come a long way.....

Waiting for the,one without a passenge door ... a DC-3 in short ;)

... then the funds to afford it, with VAT in Europe ...

Myself as well, Hubert, but I have a cunning plan.  being an ex civilian freightdog, I can attest to civilianized C-47s in various state of loading/unloading,  littering the ramps at many northern airports.  They'd leave enough space between them for other DC-3s to get by, but you were pretty much screwed in anything with longer wings.  If you ever wondered what many of the better equipped airports in Northern Canada looked like, the bottom pic just about nails it perfectly.

Lambair at one time was a huge player in Northern aviation. As a kid, I remember their DC-3s and C-47s everywhere.  They were about done by the time I flew up there, but they sold everything to other operators.

I expect the Eagle Eyed among us have already spotted the Viscount hiding behind the C-47. Air Canada was also a major customer for the larger Vickers Vanguard.

I haven't been modelling as long as most of you so my mojo hasn't flagged, yet.  But no armor?  Really?  Warships?  Me...  if it ain't armed, I ain't interested.  

 

Speaking of what the Chinese man said:  I got some new undies recently.  Bamboo, lycra...  new shape.  Very comfy.  Anyway...  got an advertisement email from them the other day it said:

Confucius Say:  Bad underwear like cheap hotel;  No ballroom!
