My Builds for 2021

Hello Everybody!

Two thousand twenty-one was my most productive model building year to date with seven builds completed.

First out of the gate was AMT's 1958 Edsel Pacer.

Followed by my take on the Joker-Mobile using AMT's 1949 Mercury sedan.

I also included some implements of mayhem. The TNT is scratch built and the Thompson is from the parts box.

With a Joker-Mobile on the shelf, I needed a Joker to go with it. This is my version of MPC's Joker figure, the dynamite and M-16 are add-ons.

And of course, the two of them together.

Next up is my first Supercar build, the 2006 Ford GT by Polar Lights. For this kit, I challenged myself to finish it in the light blue plastic in which it was cast.

Next is the Batman figure by Moebius. This is one of two figures included in the kit, the other of which is intended to be mounted as riding the Bat-Pod. I plan to build that one in 2022.

Here he is with his Tumbler Batmobile also by Moebius, which I completed in 2020. As near as I can remember, the backdrop is from the Bat-Missile kit.

Here is my take on the 1959 Chrysler Imperial from AMT. This kit builds up surprisingly well considering that it's at least sixty years old.

And the last one in for the year is the Super Trebuchet. A working wooden model from ToysTub.com. I like to step outside the ol' comfort zone from time to time.

As always, thanks for taking the time to look and please feel free to post a comment.

May the coming year bring you Happiness, Abundance and Peace.

Great looking variety of build styles. The Trebuchet is really interesting. Have you ever seen the " Chunkin Pumpkin"? program on the History Channel?
