Paul Bradley's 2022 in Review


Recommended Posts

So 2022 ends and it's actually been a very good year for me, modelling-wise. I got back into reviewing kits and things for IPMS/USA after an 11 year lay-off, and that helped boost my total of completions to 20, which is the most I've finished in a year since I started keeping records in 2007! And, for a wonder, I built almost as many military vehicles as aircraft! Here they are in order:

Skunkworks 1/48 RN Tow Tractor:


Matchbox 1/72 Mystere IV:



Italeri 1/72 F-5B:


Special Hobby 1/72 Vampire FB.9:



Brengun 1/72 and 1/144 RN Clarcat Type B deck cars:


Revell 1/32 Hawk T.1:


Classic Airframes 1/48 Fokker D.XXI:



Tamiya 1/48 Challenger II:



Revell 1/72 Challenger I and Airfix 1/72 Firefly:



Tamiya 1/48 Dingo, Tilly and Universal Carrier:



Classic Airframes 1/48 Camberra TT.18:



ICM 1/32 Tiger Moth:


ProModeller 1/48 Kittyhawk IA:



Hobbyboss 1/72 MI-2:



Airfix 1/72 Anson (the 1962 kit):



ICM 1/48 Beaufort:

Really nice stuff as always Paul and I am glad you are back in the Corps.

Just one nitpick for you regarding the Airfix Firefly.  It shouldn't have the bow machine gun.  Airfix got it wrong in the instructions but actually include the part that was welded over the gun mount on the real tank, they just didn't call it out.  But then again, you are a plane guy and I love seeing all the armor you did this year.  Now we need to get you building some Sci-Fi stuff.

Cheers, Phil! It's good to be back in the saddle. 

I realised the error with the Sherman after I finished it. The good thing is the recipient would have no idea, so no harm done. 😉

Sci-Fi? Just wait for my next review....! 😁
