    This has been a tradition of mine for close to four years now. Also, every year I choose a special model to build for the top of the tree, Last year I used the Jaybat's Battlestar Pegasus. So, which do you think I should do for this year's?






    I made a typo in the poll title, sorry. ;)

    mine from last year

    A B-29 instead of the B-36. To honor The recent death of Paul Tibbets.

    I may do that later. I've already started on the 36

    Several years ago I got a chance to see Paul Tibbets in a parade in Pigeon Forge,TN.

    I didn't know you'd finished the Osprey! How was construction? I can also see three of my other models on there, I'm flattered! I also see the Hammerhead, did you do a repaint of it?

    Anyway, my vote would definitely be the ISSCV.

    Construction went quite well, it took me a while to figure out how the engines went together, other than that its a great looking model. The hammerhead is the repaint version that you did. I noticed that hole I cut for the stand was just big enough to insert one of the ligts into the fuselage,the windows are from an envelope.

    Feel like sharing pictures of the Osprey? I didn't include the axel parts...did you get the rotors to tilt and rotate? If not, you might try the new version I uploaded. And there is an album with construction images to help.

    Images of the Hustler would be nice too, I never constructed a the colored version.

    Anyway, that cardmodel tree is a great idea. I really wish I had a small tree I could decorate like that this year.

    Sorry to drag this a little off topic but where did you get that snow speeder? I would really like something like that as the only links I can find are to a little un-colored one. And it's hard to tell but are the windows clear on that? Is there a full cockpit? Thanks for any info.

    The snow speeder is actually the old AMT/ERTL plastic kit, sorry.

    The tree looks fantastic, I wish I could do something like it, but "she who must be obeyed"sign1 might have something to say about itsign1.I'm very impressed with the Aluminium Angel you have on top:thumb:. So impressed , I have just been to Fiddlers green and bought the entire bomber collection as a "LITTLE" christmas treat for myself. I'm sure my son, whose 9th birthday it was yesterday will look forward to some of them hanging in his room.:mrgreen:
    Happy Christmas to you and your family, and to all on the forum.
