Time 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (1.0 hrs actual modeling time.)

2018 Total time: 25.63 hrs.

This was the MMCL quarterly Friday Night Fight build meeting.  While I was there for 3 hours, I only got in about an hour of actual modeling.  The rest of the time was spent visiting with friends and helping the younger modeldaughter with her modeling.

I worked exclusively on the Brengun MYX-7.  Most of the work was on the photoetch aftermarket seat and the kit wings.  Good progress was made.

CTA (cut then add) decals has announced a new sheet of decals for JNAF aircraft serving aboard carriers.  It looks very neat and right up my alley.

I hadn’t heard of Coastal Kits Bases.  It is amazing all the new hobby companies out there.  Has anyone seen any of these bases?  They look nice on the website.

The USAF is looking to equip F-15s with laser weapons.  Story here.  Interesting if they can do it.

Good news.  Takom is scaling down their V-2.  This is good news.  The Special Armor one is good, but I am looking forward to this one as well.

I’ve never really like the Navy trainer scheme of white and orange.  Thus, I’ve never really liked the T-2C.  I had the Matchbox kit at one time as I intended to do a Greek T-2C, but I sold it or gave it away, because…..Matchbox.  However, Wolfpack has done a T-2C that is very nice and I’ve found a scheme that I’d like to do.

Time 9:00 p.m. to 10:20 p.m. (1.33 hrs.)

2018 Total time: 24.63 hrs.

Finally got back to the bench after 11 days away.  This is what happens to me every year.  As I get further into the year, my bench time gets less and less.  With recent life developments, I don’t see this year being any different.

I did get some building done.  Mainly added some of the grab handles on the T-34/85 and worked a bit on the MXY-7.  Primed the interior and then painted it with Alclad dull aluminum.  The grab handles on the T-34/85 have been very time consuming.  I think they will look much better than the plastic parts, but what a pain.

Roy Sutherland of Barracudacals has released two sets of stencil data decals for Late Mark Spits and Fw-190s.  Roy’s stuff is great.  I’ll be picking both these up.
