    Egh, here goes :S

    1. Finish I-16 in Japanese markings,
    2. Finish Nieuport 17, things keep poping apart and glue isnt setting nicely

    After those are done I've got a lot of kits in process and mostly stalled, only getting to work on them once in a while, while the other ones are drying from glue or paint.
    these include:
    1. Bf-109G-2, Romanian "White 7" most likely I have to finish moding the cockpit, make a thread about her in the Start to Finish builds and finally post pics of her progress :D
    2. Finish the Bf-109E-4 Romanian Yellow 65, the cockpit canopy broke so I've got to order some resin canopy or something similar to finish her.
    3. Finish the P-51 "Ole Goat" for my Dad :D
    4. Start the Canadair Mk.2 Sabre that I'll be doing in the start to finish thread, when she gets in, plus order the decals for her.
    5. Zmaj Hawker Hurricane, or better known as the DB Hurricane, built by Zmaj with a Db-601? engine mated to a Hurricane airframe. I have a Mk.II Hurricane in the pile and a Ki-61 that look like they could mate together for a nice pairing for the model. Would LOVE to build this one, it would probobly be the most I've ever cut up a plane and stuck it on but I think the outcome would hopefully be fantastic, plus its a bird thats been in my mind for a longggg time :D
    plus a couple other kits that have been started in small stages and plans but hopefully if I can finish these and the ones up there for the year, it would be fantastic :D Plus maybe throw in that 1/72 F-86F sabre I received the other day and we should be set.

    I was kinda bored one afternoon so when Vic published the next batch of GB's out to 2017, I went through my stash and assigned models to each GB that I could. Several didn't fit so I have some GB's that I'll sit out and do some Start to Finish builds instead like my current Dora unless I get new kits that fit. So for 2013, the plan is:

    Finish my Dora this month
    Arado 234 for GB 17
    Mosquito Mk IV for GB 18
    Graf's FW 190A-5 for GB 19
    Kittyhawk Mk IV for GB 20

    ....unless I get hit by a bus or the world comes to an end because the Mayans didn't account for leap years.

    You’re a man after my own heart Andy, did the same thing with the new GB list and from the stash with the exception of one GB, I can go out to GB 29 no trouble, so let's hope I'm still around in the spring of 2016.

    As for my goals for the modelling year, get out of bed each morning and if that works, keep up with the GB builds and maybe one or two start to finish builds………………………………………………..Oh, and have another nice long holiday overseas.

    Just started a new Stuka. With my rate and experience it'll probably be the only one I will do this year. Last year build my first model in 25 years, so.....

    Enter at least 1 GB!!!! Every time I try, life gets in the way.

    Halfway through a BR20 now. The pile consists of an SM79, RAAF 'bou, cant z501, Me210, He111 zwilling. Also got a big dio in my head involving tiffy's and 262's.

    If I can get through them, I'll be happy.

    Awaiting delivery on a ju52 minesweeper, Grumman duck and a few others.... Oh, and the pile has many more.

    Actually, the goal in the big picture is 'less buying, more building'!!!

    First, try to fight through the 'seasonal' effects of arthritis, get motivated, finish the current commission build, and clean and repair those models not already attended to.
    Next, finish the few things needed on the Buccaneer and the 1/32nd scale Hunter, then finish the Wessex and continue with the 1/32nd scale Mosquito conversion.
    When that's done, concentrate on the 1/32nd scale BAe Hawk and continue planning for the BoB collection.
    Next will be a couple of 1/48th scale jets, including the 56 Sqn Hunter and at least one Jaguar, whilst fiddling with a 1/48th boxed diorama of the Spit XIV and V1 and a mixed-scale boxed diorama of a particular BoB engagement.
    Given that this all goes according to plan (yeah, right!), then I can start on the 15 models for the BoB collection,with diversions into other 56 Sqn builds, as well as some other stuff, such as a SOE Lysander ....... then it'll be about 2015 !
    And the next episode of 'Fairey Tales Live' follows after the News .......

    Fly Models 1/32 Bachem 349 "Natter".

    I'll be building it as M23 in which Lothar Sieber made his fatal flight. He was a brave man and must have had reservations about the project. He altered his will in favour of his fiancee before the fateful launch.

    After that one's finished,who knows?

    Cheers

    Steve

    Like Andy I went to my stash and tried to match kits up with the upcoming group builds.
    GB 16: Need to get going on my Shrike
    GB 17: 23 choices and may do a photo recon Mustang and maybe one of the early jets I have.
    GB 18: 26 choices and will probably do a B-17 or B-24 from one of my father's bomb groups, and if their's time maybe one of the English 4 engine bombers
    GB 19: More choices than I can count but right now thinking about a P-40F with 'tail art"

    May 1st–Sunday Sept 2nd 2013 - GB 18-Heavy Hitters of WWII Allied or Axis, Single to Multi Engine.
    Bombers, dive bombers, tank busters, ground attack, anything that delivers a heavy punch.


    2 x B-29's, 2 x B-17's, 2 x B-24's, 1 x Lancaster, 1 x Wellington etc...

    Aug 1st–Sunday Dec 1st 2013 – GB 19-Aircraft Nose Art.
    Aircraft must be based on an actual example of flamboyant personal or squadron markings. This one has no set period.


    Even more here, maybe try to do 'my' Lucky 13 B-29? :lol:

    Nov 1st– Sunday Mar 2nd 2014 – GB 20-Aircraft in Foreign Service WWII.
    The last run of this build brought up some interesting subjects, it's worth running again.


    Swedish J-28 Vampire perhaps?

    Feb 1st- Sunday Jun 1 2014 - GB 21-Pacific Theatre of Operations land based or carrier launched WWII, Allied or Axis.
    Self explanatory really but an opportunity to bring in the America, Commonwealth and Japanese aircraft from the occupation of China to the occupation of Japan.


    Another USS Yorktown bird!

    May 1st- Sunday Aug 31 2014 - GB 22-Seaplanes, Floatplanes of WWII, Allied or Axis.
    Lots of scope here from little single engine to those huge Blohm Voss mammoths if you can find the kit.


    One of my 4 PBY Catalinas, or Duck or Goose! :lol:

    Aug 1st- Sunday Nov 30th 2014 - GB 23-Winter War and Eastern Front of WWII, Allied or Axis.
    Scope to cover this bitter conflict that saw the partitioning of Poland in 1939 and the annexation of the Baltic States. The invasion of Finland in November 1939 by the USSR, the invasion of Russia (Operation Barbarossa) through to the Great Patriotic Wars that lead to Berlin.


    Got a few birds sitting for this one!

    Nov 1st– Sunday Mar 1st 2015 - GB 24-Mediterranean Theatre of Operations WWII.
    Including the North African Campaign, the Eastern Mediterranean Operations, the siege of Malta and the Allied landings in Sicily. Good scope for Italian and Vichy aircraft.


    Hmmmm.... :lol:

    Only really need by something to put them on! :lol:

    I really want to keep pace with the group builds at least ... using each one to try and move forwards skills wise ( lets face it theres plenty of room to move into )

    So Jet Age .. the Hobby Boss Me 292A1 /U3 i got for xmas

    Heavy Hitters ... I have two Tamiya Beaufighters on the shelf, one of my all time have planes

    Nose Art ... I have a P 47D that needs an interesing subject

    I would like to get to the stage where i can use my airbrush without a nervous breakdown each time .

    I want to tackle some luftwaffe mottle camo, which is a bit daunting to be honest and have an unsuspecting airfix 1/48 109 Emil which may be the 1st victim ... I have just about done what i can to murder the I-16 so that may well be the next thing on the bench
