My small Class of 2022


Recommended Posts


  Best wishes for a wonderful new year!  I wasn't on the modeling workbench much during 2022. Sorry for not even been here in a long time. 
In 2022, scale models lost the battle against my other workbench-hoarding hobby: Vintage Camera restorations.  (If anyone is interested, here is a link to my 2022 Year-in-review for camera restorations:

No contest this year: 36 cameras vs only 3 models.

I did manage to finish 3 scale models, although only 1 is really a plastic model car.

1. My best of the year and only plastic model car was the 1949 Talbot Lago T26C Belgian Grand Prix winner 
Started with the Merit/Smer kit but ended up scratchbuilding a lot of it.

2. The other race car was actually a 1/64 Corvette C6R chassis 001 as tested in Sebring January 8 2005
Started with a beaten Hot Wheels

3. My third and last model of the year was a totally different subject.  A STAR WARS B Wing Fighter with some serious firepower.
Started with a vintage built MPC snap kit that was broken and incomplete. Funny, this kit was re-released recently.

Wish you all a wonderful New Year full of health!
