Fired up!

Filed under: Modeling — dknights @ 6:00 pm

Man, I am in a modeling frame of mind.  I am in a mood to build.  Part of it is the beginning of the fall season.  This brings the Nats followed by the local fall shows.  Seeing others completed models always inspires me to build.  The weather has a little crispness in the air and that also seems to get my blood up.

Not satisfied with what I have currently on my plate, I am already planning what to build in the future.  This is dangerous I know, but I can’t help it.

Right now, I have in process and nearing completion the following:

Revell Hawker Hunter (in the decaling stage. Should be finished by this weekend.)

Tamiya Jeep (in the paintshop.  Going to try a number of weathering techniques on this one.)

Trumpeter P-40 (Ready for initial priming)

Trumpeter Su-15TM Flagon-F ( Under construction)

Well, that should last me a few years at my current rate.  However, I am still thinking about what is next.  Here is what I am thinkingg about now.

Acc. Min. Predator (Small kit, Quick build. Very topical)

Tamiya P-47 (A true OOB. A chance to play with some OD fading techniques.)

Revell Hunter (I know, but the Hunter has grown on me, the Revell kit is great and I have tons of great markings for it.)

MiG-17 (Yes, I know I just finished one, but I want to build one with all the bells and whistles and correct the DML kits’ flaws.)

Well that should keep me until I die.  Guess that means I should sell off the other 1000 kits I have. Not!


  1. I too am in a modeling frame of mind…I said frame of mind, not actual building. I’m not sure what project(s) to work on, but I will say the Predator may end up on my bench soon.

  2. Predator is a sweet looking kit. I’ve opened the box and fondled (I mean examined) the contents. Should be a real quick build as there is not much there. I want to build that and an F-22A for my brother who is a Major at Nellis. He could tell mewhat he does, but then he’d have to kill me.
