2022: My year in styrene: 10 creations...

Recommended Posts


Of all things, 2022 saw the return of model shows, with the chance to mingle with friends and fellow modelers. What a great return to normalcy!

I completed 10 projects in 2022, and tried to cover diverse fields. But... rods and vintage funny cars loom large, with a Bonneville car thrown in for good measure. 

So, have a nice holiday season, and may the gods of styrene be on your side in 2023!

Came back to look at the Boothill Express. That has to be one of, if not the, best wood grain paint applications I have seen on a model. Very, very, nice and a treat to look at. 


Hi Joe!

Thanks for the compliments. I had built the kit once in the 60's, and I wanted to make something special out of it, It became the Boot Hill DRIFTER. Can't stop the march of progress, I guess...
