Myself, well I had a great year with the stash growing faster than the kits could make it to the display cabinets but I was still able to lock away more finished kits than the last couple of years, even with a house move in there somewhere.
Many things contributed to the increased output, a new 'workbench' helped along with motivation from the MSMC champs, a great NZD to JPY exchange rate and of course, a very forgiving wife :-)
So lets recap the year of builds, apologies for the ones not in the blog but 2015 will be better i promise.
First was a build of first, first military, first dio, first mud, and of course first of the year
Next was Bandai's Real Grade Strike Freedom which was so enjoyable it started the purchasing of the entire RG series which I'm glad to say I now have all of the standard release kits, and a couple of the limited releases as well.
Then there was the move of houses which technically gave me a smaller man-cave but one solely dedicated to my indoor hobbies. It still looks pretty much like this but with the addition of a couple of extra desk lights and some drawers under the bench
Airfix 1/72nd Albatross proved to be a pig of a kit so ended up on the 'shelf of doom'
Airfix 1/72 Male Tank was completed for the MSMC WWI themed night
AMT Shelby Cobra was also a constant fight so joined the Albatross on the shelf off doom
Bandai Tiger and Bunny 1/8 was next and this was finished, although not until the end of the year.
Airfix Fiesta WRC 1/32 for the MSMC Club Build
Fujimi Fiat 500 F1 edition was completed so something shiny could be on the shelf.
Scibor Treeman 2 miniature was a first and change to try something different
Bandai Re100 Nightingale was at the other end of the size spectrum from the Treeman
Bandai MG Wing Gundam
Bandai 1/12 Darth Vader got snapped together, no paint decals or glue here.
Bandai 1/72 XWing was assembled with no glue or paint, just the decals and a dark grey wash.
Bandai RG Z Gok was assembled while away over the xmas break
along with Bandai RG Justice Gundam which was decaled and flat-coated on my return
Bandai HG Beargguy San right out of box.
Lets hope 2015 is as productive if not more
