With summer almost ending...

I thought I'd peek in and see how long it had been since my last post.

Wow, sorry 'bout that.

As always, with the warmer weather and the longer daylight, most time is spent outside. I wouldn't say I didn't model at all, just not nearly as much. I've worked on a few projects when time permits and have quite a few built models that just need to be painted. This summer has been very humid so I didn't use the airbrush much at all, just spent most of my free time either assembling kits, or weathering something that had been painted last winter.

With Autumn arriving in about one months time, I will be spending much more time behind the bench and will try to create some more interesting models for those of you who follow along. My last project pictured below has served me very well. It will be featured in Military Modelcraft Internationals' November issue, won a gold at AMPS Nationals and was actually sold to someone at that very show. If I could do that with every model...

anyway, I'll just put up a photo of what I tend to finish off tonight.

Be well. See you all soon.


  1. Yeah Ken that was a fast Summer!!
    Nice looking little Cold Warrior there, should make for an interesting addition to your collection.

    See you at the end of September.

    1. Eric, see you in a month or so. Hope to have this there with me at the AK table.

  2. Nice! What better to get you in the mood for Russian stuff than a tall glass of booze? ;-)
    I'm workin' on that kit as we speak, oddly enough...
    What are you gonna use for the canvas cover, if anything?

  3. Kyle, I'm anxious to see what you do with yours. For the canvas tilt I'm thinking some Aves or something, might as well since they bought some advertising space in the uh... well, you know where I'm going with that. ;)
