Recommended Posts

Okay people, I'm posting this here because of the fact that I have a wide variety of models finished and I wanted to keep them in one thread. There'll be multiple posts on this Thread due to the pics limitation, so bear with me here. There are a lot of pics to see, as I managed to finish 66 models in 2009.

Wow, I either overwhelmed everyone to speechlessness, or nobody can download this Thread. I was hoping to generate some discussion on this Thread, but I guess this was a mistake posting everything. I guess I should have just listed them all instead like everyone did in the other Thread in Open Discussion.

Nah.....I know I'm very impressed! In fact, I've already adjusted my building tactics to follow your lead by building more OOTB in the coming year. I still won't approach your productivity levels, and will be happy if I get 16 done, let alone 26 or 66 as you did! I think most comments have been made about a lot of your models on other threads or when you originally posted them when you finished them. Thus, most people haven't bothered to repeat themselves here. As for me, I like all the pics! Looking at models is the next best thing to building them. Thanks!

Hi, Duke,


It took me over an hour to look at all the photos because I opened most of them to get a better second look. I actually look forward to your annual photo recap, and I always come away amazed. As a total body of work, you set the pace and somehow manage to blend art, skill, history, and accuracy in all your models. I've seen your postings of your collection cases, and I won't admit how I wish I could fill mine as well as you do. 2010 will be your record-breaker--that's my prediction. A Duke is married to a Duchess or Queen, and you must have found one of those. :smiley2:

I am humbled by both your comments Gil and Ed.


Thanks Gil! I'm glad you enjoy my work and I'm glad to give you so many to look at. I do hope to see more of your OOB builds, they are going to look great!


Ed, thank you! I figured it would take awhile to look at all these, but not because you'd open them again. Thank you! I may make 2010 a banner year; we'll see. I'm sure going to have fun though. And yes, my wife is quite the Duchess, especially when I keep the Hobby Room door closed! :smiley9::smiley17:


Thanks again guys for your fantastic comments!
