Paul B's 2021 Yearbook


Recommended Posts

11 completions this past year, about average for me. I'll run them in chronological order.


Fuel tanker and Cushman trike from the Airfix 1/72 USAAF Bomber Support Set, done as post-war civvie vehicles:





 Airfix 1/48 Gloster Meteor F.8:





Classic Airframes 1/48 Grumman Widgeon:





Airfix 1/48 Spitfire XVIII (converted from the XIV kit):





Airfix 1/48 Spitfire Vb:





Airfix 1/72 MBB Bo105:





Airfix 1/72 Lynx HAS.2:





Airfix 1/72 Lynx AH.1:





Revell 1/72 F-4EJ, the very basic 1965 kit!





SBS Resin 1/72 Farman F.190:






Tamiya 1/48 Mosquito NF.XIX, converted from the NF.XIII kit:






A pleasing year, I was pretty happy with most of these completions. We'll see what 2022 brings, but I have a number of interesting builds planned. Let's see what transpires!

Mostly Brit subjects ... what a surprise!

Well, one does one's best to balance the preponderance of nefarious foreign subjects with a soupçon of culture, what? 


Thank you all for the kind words. 😎

Thanks, Mark!


I can recommend the USAAF Bomber Support set for this, though it's unfortunate that the bomb carrier truck was a specific chassis that was only used for the bomb carrier truck and is therefore in a sense wasted. I don't build USAAF stuff so I have no use for it! 


The decals for the Shell tanker are by Arctic Decals - https://www.arcticdecals.com/products.html?id=33921/444734 They also do a colourful Shell version in yellow and red which is very tempting, and an all-green BP one.  The Cushman is in generic markings based on similar vehicles at London Airport in the late 1940's. I made the assumption (using my fully paid-up Artistic License) that London Airport acquired some surplus ones at some point.

Nice collection, Paul.  I like the Farman a lot, but all look great, especially the Esso tanker and Autocar.
