2016 Modeling report #3

Date: Jan. 9th, 2016

Time: 3.0 hrs

Yearly total: 4.87

Just like last year, I’ve gotten a fast start.  However, based on the last two years, I know it cannot last.  I am almost resigned to the fact.

Went to the MMCL shop in the morning with Natalie and got in a good hour of modeling, though between helping Natalie and shooting the breeze, I didn’t get as much done as I would have otherwise.  Mostly I worked on the 72nd scale RAF figures for my long planned Battle of France airfield diorama.

In the evening, I got two hours in, mostly working on the Airfix Hurricane.  I normally don’t use much photoetch, but on this kit I am using the Eduard precolored RAF seatbelts.
