Something I've noticed lately is how many people have said that they've not produced much this year compared to other years. Compared to last year, my production has risen 550%! Mind you, that wasn't difficult seeing as I only completed two builds last year...

This year started off with a Tamiya 1/48 Skyray, a previous Birthday present from my mate Karl. Cheers, mate!

Then I did another in my occasional series of aircraft from 501 Squadron, my Dad's old squadron. This was the Eduard 1/48 Hawker Tempest, with AlleyCat rear fuselage correction, and done in the markings of Sqn Ldr Joe Berry:

After that long term build, I fancied a bit of a quick build, and did the Tamiya 1/48 FW190-A3 as a speed build in only 17 hours spread over a couple of days:

Then it was on to another long build, the Tamiya 1/48 Mosquito FB.VI, built completely OOB:

Then I did the Cyber Hobby 1/200 Avro Vulcan for Spence's new magazine:

After that it was time for a What If? for the BM Group Build. I cobbled together what Donald Campbell's next Bluebird car might have looked like if he'd not been killed at Coniston:

Then I had a bit of a break with some 1/6 Dragon firearms. First was the M16:

Followed by two versions of the AK-47:

Then I had a funny spell for Christmas and made a Christmas tree out of a 1/72 Airfix Gnat:

And finally, just making it into this yearbook is the Entex 1/144 Super Guppy, built in 17 hours spread over a week:

That Tempest looks the biz and I'd already complimented you on the Bluebird car, that was a great build considering it was cobbled together from scraps :)

Isn't there a saying about quality and quantity? All fantastic builds. The Bluebird idea is great!

Cheers,
