New Year’s resolutions

In general, new year’s resolutions don’t pan out.  This is especially been true in the past regarding my modeling resolutions.  This year I am keeping them more modest, but at the same time I am going to try harder to stick to them.  Here they are.

  1. Finish the M-30 and Mossie
  2. Build the Trumpeter Tu-128 and do a bare metal finish
  3. Build Fine Molds Ki-43 I
  4. Build Fine Molds Type A mini sub
  5. Finish one other aircraft to be named later

Now, that would be 6 kits if I finished them all which would be a record for me.  Time will tell.

And ones we need to boot.  Fine Molds is releasing a A6M prototype and an A6M2 Model 11.  These will fill a big gap for modelers of Japanese aircraft and those whose interest is in the air war in China.

On Twitter I saw a Japanese language tweet indicating that Fine Molds was doing an early Ki-43I to be released in Model Graphix magazine.  Can anyone point me to more info on this?

I am sure this is expensive, but if you are an F-14 fan, I can see this being worth it to you.
