My 9 builds from 2021


Recommended Posts

2021 was definitely one of my most productive years building model cars. There was always a project on my bench. I am hoping to do some traveling in 2022 so I expect my total to be less this time next year. Best regards to everyone on the forum and the people keeping  Model Cars magazine going.

Thanks everybody and to answer Andrew's question - the open wheel race car is the Tamiya 1/20 Ferrari F2001 as it ran at Monza in tribute to the 911 victims.

Looks great!   I'm curious, what paint did you use on the second green car? Looks like it would suit the Tamiya Xj220 quite well.

WOW!!!!! This build could have easily been a poster on my bedroom wall when I was a youngster. Masterfully done down to the last little detail.

All are nice builds, but that dark green Merc is just perfection......

Love these iconic Barris Customs! And the paint on the Corvette looks delicious!

Thanks very much everyone. I really appreciate your comments and Merry Christmas to all.

The paint on the Sam Barris dark green Merc is Alclad Emerald Green Kandy over silver and the red on the Mazmanian Willys and Corvette is Alclad Kandy Apple Red over gold

Noice!  Loved the Willys, missed the Mercuries and your Ala Kart reminds me that that is one I still have to do!  Congrats on a great year. 

If you are travelling for work and spending a lot of time in motel rooms, I can recommend taking body work projects.  Get a bunch of putty applied at home and then just sit there in that badly lit room watching junk TV and sand, sand, sand.  I have been travelling for work for the last nine years and got a lot done that way.  If you can find a small cookie tin or coffee tin or similar, wrap the body in bubble wrap and put it in the tin amongst your clothing and you will stop the baggage handlers undoing your work!

And don't leave the X-acto in your carry-on luggage - they get real funny about that!
