It's been a LONG time since I've done any modeling. Super busy summer had me abandon a bunch of projects. Then the board went away for that month or so.  Anyway I've got a couple small ones on the table to get going. Figure small/easy to get back in the mojo. 


One is a 1/100 B-1 bomber. Can't think of the manufacturer off my head. Only comes in flight and looks pretty tame. 


Also have the Dragon 1/144 B-2 and F-117 (laughable) combo. The B-2 doesn't look bad so I'm going to throw that one together too.


Hopefully that will beat my funk and I can get another 1/72 B-17 out. Not sure which kit yet as I have almost all of them plus. The new Airfix is coming out. Maybe I'll get that one and do a small review? 


Anyway i I haven't used Pbucket in over 6 months and have only completed 1 kit this year so I need to get busy. My local club's show/contest is this weekend so I'll be at that all day Sunday and maybe it'll motivate me further. 


Updates to follow. 


I also went in and tried to comment on everybody's posts to get some modeling juices flowing.

Ok so I was looking at the 1/144 B-2 today. It's not very good. Tons of panel detail is missing. I may still do it but I don't expect much from it. 


The B-1 is actually 1/260 scale from Academy. No other decals or anything is available so I'm kind of hamstrung. 


Might start a B-17 sooner than I thought.

I'm really wanting to get the new Airfix but I don't know where the fastest place I'll get it is. Don't have a LHS anymore so would have to drive about an hour to one if they had it. I don't even know when it comes out in the US. 


I did a little work on the tiny B-1. It's shape looks good to me but it has almost no markings. Anyone know a company that could downscale some B-1 decals?

I have been very lax in my gb duties and modeling in general. Only completed 2 kits last year. Need to do better this year. 


Heres where im at on the 1/260 B-1. I'm just going to paint it a dark grey and use the sparse kit decals. Slump buster it will be. 








Shouldn't really take much just need to motivate.

Thought it would be simple but it never is. The fit of the engines was completely devoid of an area of the upper fuselage. Looked terrible. So I added some cut pe metal with some epoxy and will have to sand and fill and sand again later. Should look much better.
