1. Stay alive!
2. Build models!

In that order. ;)

AGREED!  With a slight amendment

1. Stay alive!  and be able to wish you all a Happy New Year on 01/01/23
2. a      Write more backstories
2.b       Finish some models!

It  means that you read  the instruction sheet


I should be able to kitbash the North American RA-5C with the F-18F. My first thought was to use the conformal fuel tanks on the F-15C/D if they fit.
A swing-wing version using the Mig-23/27.
To finish all my started builds, I still have a few complete kits in the stash but they are big even in 1/72 scale so I will need the room.


I should be working on my 00 gauge layout, finishing my current builds. With the fitness course I will be able to do some of the D.I.Y. jobs like putting up shelves and racking. I might be able to return to work in the spring of 2024.


What if the Boeing B-17 was powered by four Rolls-Royce Griffons? I know that someone tried fitting Rolls-Royce Dart engines back in the 1970s, but I think with the various Shackleton kits available this might be an easier option.
I've always wanted to build the cargo version of the B-17 and a whiffed B-29 freighter.
Somewhere in the stash is a couple of boat kits, I'm not too sure if they are complete or compatible with each other but this should be interesting none the less.
More car builds and a few cheap R/C ready built cars plus a helicopter. I have a park that's very close to me but due to my mobility I haven't been able to visit it yet but once I get my stamina back I'll be out and about more often.
 The 00 gauge layout, this will be built in modules as I keep changing my mind on what it is supposed to look like when it's finished. As to the O gauge one that will run on a continuous loop around my bedroom just below the ceiling on a purpose built shelf.


Well, there was the XB-38, a test bed with four with liquid-cooled Allison V-1710-89 Vee engines:


There are a number of pics of a B-17 with four Darts out there.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

BG?  Miscellaneous battleship?

I don't know what I'll be doing for what-ifs in the near future.  Maybe I'll hop into the Logistics build; I have an idea, and the base kit isn't expensive.
In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.
