TheRealMrEd's Wild Ride In 2020


Recommended Posts

Hello again, seems like only a few days ago that I was writing up last year's build log.  Time flies!  But, I was determined to make the best of this rather trying year...

 

Anyway, here are this years completed models, although a couple were shelf queens from yesteryear.  First up, the Lift Here Models Piper PA-58 -- last of the Mustangs:

Not a lot of models this year, but some welcome additions to the collection.  For those interested, the pertinent articles contain custom artwork that you are free to use for any non-commercial purpose.

 

Thanks for looking,

 

Ed

Wow! Those are some very cool and rarely built subjects! Nine builds, especially with all of the conversion work and the limited run kits (that are much harder to build), is quite an accomplishment in my book. Congrats, and thanks for sharing! Looking forward to 2021!
