Joe's 2019 Completions

Recommended Posts

I don't move particularly fast with my builds but I did manage to get three finished this year. The Arado 234 took 3 years to build . It was one of the most difficult builds that I've completed to date.

Completed in March---AMT C1500 454SS:

Completed in July--Arado 234 "Blitz":

Completed a few days ago--General Lee....ish Charger:

You do really nice paint jobs!  Love the Arado, I'm into WW2 German armor and aircraft (Left 46 especially), looks good.  Aftermarket tail decal?

Thanks Kurt. They are...but it was part of an entire decal set from Aero Master. I had gotten away from building aircraft altogether because of this bird and my painting but have been working on the latter and am feeling the bug again.

It's the Hasegawa 1/48 offering Bob. It's supposed to be the best on the market. It is in terms of detail but it's a bear to put together and get to look right.

Three great ones!! The 454SS gets my vote, simply for the reason my stepson had one on those brutes back in the day. I built a replica for him that now resides in my display case. Yours looks like the real thing!

Hi!

Great production. Your paint finishing is absolutely world-class! Bravo.

I had one of those 1/1 black stepside PU in black... and it was not as shiny as your model. It says it all...

Thanks Bruce, Carl and Claude. 

Claude: I poured the gloss to it more than I would've liked but in the end I was pretty happy with it. These are some of my favorite trucks in real life.
