On the Plastic Model Mojo podcast a few months ago I was talking with Mike about the abundance of new 72nd scale aircraft kits that have been released in the last few years. I talked about how few mainstream subjects were left that needed updating. One aircraft I did mention is the C-46. Well, it turns out Valom must have heard me. (ha). They have announced a new C-46, in several different boxings.

An injection Ki-54. Now, if it isn’t too much trouble, can I get a Ki-57?

New HS-126

Brengun has announced a new Hs-126.  This is good news as the previous kits of the Hs-126 are well over 30 years old,. if not older.  The HS-126 was used by several smaller air forces and a new kit will surely be better than current offerings.

No, not that Arma.  But I am not to proud to admit, I need this kit in my life.

This company out of Hungary does some of the finest resin kits of some very unusual subject. Here is a lovely build of their Caudron C.450. I have two SBS kits in the stash and need to get them onto the table.

On January 7th, Airfix announced their 2021 new releases.  While not as numerous as years past, it is good.  See here.

No progress

Have you ever had a day where you modeled a lot but felt you made no progress? That was me today. Not a good way to start 2021. It isn’t that I didn’t make progress, I am sure I did. It just isn’t visible to me. As I want to increase my pace in 2021, this was frustrating.

On the plus side, I got to see, in person a lot of modeling friends, including some I haven’t seen in a while. This was great and a big reason I don’t feel as bad as I otherwise would. Here is hoping that 2021 will bring a better modeling experience.

Dot filter technique

An interesting dot filter technique application.  Heavier than I’ve ever seen it done before.  What do you think? (Other than the guy should be wearing a glove when handling the model.)
