Hasegawa 1/32 scale Fw 190A-7. Quick and simple out of the box build. Went together very well as almost all Hasegawa kits do. Decided on the b/w stripe nose camo. June 2014.2015-2.jpg2015-6.jpg

Very nice pictures Ricky and TAOF. You two are starting to stir up memories and energy for

building models that I haven't had in a long time. The last time I built a model was in 2005.

I built a few in the 2003-2005 era. About 100 give or take. I built several back in 1970s up

until 1978, my first born child came along. It was time to raise a family. I wrote down the year

and month that each model was built. In the 2000s I kept closer notes on the manufacture of

the model and the paint colors used to build it. I still have all that information.....somewhere. :rolleyes:

Hey Ricky,

I haven't seen a section on this site for posting our model collections. I never was very good

at building them, but I just loved to do it.

I would list myself in the 'Past the beginners but don't have the patients to make it look great'

class. :)

Oh! I have to brag about My early teenage-me: I self invented stretching the surplus casting bars over a candle to create thin plastic wires for aerials, and I found out that the aluminium metallic paint became a polished-like surface If breathent at with open mouth instantly after brusning it on!
However, I was a Monkey with the glue, actual My very first kit, a MiG-15 melted down during the first day after assembling due to overload of glue, hence I should have become much more wise about that detail when I built a STUKA, the ancestor to My entire collection, some years later, but as said, I never really mastered it ;-)

Thanks you everyone for the kind words and im happy to bring back a few nostalgic moments. I myself took a long break from modelling (mainly due to lack of space) but now i have packed up my 1/48 scale collection and put them into storage it has left quite a gap/space in my study/hobby room. And now with the modern very well designed kits available on the market my passion has returned. Im just sad that all the model shops in my area are now closed down because of the online mail order clubs that have put small businesses out of business. Personally i liked visiting my local hobby store not just to purchase a kit but to have that one to one personal touch/conversation and of course being able to actually pick up a box and inspect the contents/actually handle the goods before committing to buy. There was a great little shop just up the road from me with a friendly service and reliable source of info/ideas on tips and tricks to help build a better example. Ordering online just isnt the same for me but alas this is the age we live in. I hope to see/inspire a few other kit builders to share or discuss ideas, and anyone that has the same passion for what it fast becoming a dying art.

 

With my change over to 1/32 scale im enjoying my builds now more than ever.  :)

Nice job!
The sharkmouth of the Flying Tigers is seemingly hard to do wrong as artists freedom characterizes the individual paintscheme ;-)
