    All the models I built this year. Not as many as I'd hoped in my first year of retirement. Turns out I don't wanna go in the basement during the day when it's nice out [​IMG] More pics and details on my website.

    nice! I have built (though not nearly as well) some of these many years ago:
    the P-51 mustang
    the F-111
    maybe that German one in the lower right corner

    I had built the Star Trek shuttlecraft and the Klingon D-7 as a kid. I think I remember building an Aardvark. All long since lost to the dustbin of history and none of them painted or decal-ed. Forbin is a master at this stuff and all I did back in the day was glue 'em together. Did go thru a phase where I painted all my airplanes gloss black, tho.

    That German things is the first time it's been kitted, so probably not :)
    The shuttle and Klingon are brand new, larger scale models that just came out this year.

    the dog looks a little like one my family had many years ago. What breed is it?

    Ja, it uses the same engine, but two of them.

    that makes sense! Our dog was a springer spaniel mix too.
