Intermission – Going back in time

Day 246

Friday October 28, 2022

Time to reflect on several things on Day 246…

I must admit I wanted to stop writing this diary after having completed the PBY Catalina…

However I got curious on Day 245 and I found what I was looking for…

These are photos I took in December 2013 of my “stash” of unbuilt model kits. Well not all because I had kept two empty boxes…










When I took those photos I was trying to jump start my forgotten hobby. Since 2013 many model kits have been built but those were eventually replaced with dozens more in 2019 and 2020…

I was tempted to add Tamiya’s Brewster Buffalo to my collection when I got an email from Plaza Japan a few days ago. However shipping rates were too expensive. Japan Post doesn’t ship to Canada anymore since December 2020 because of the pandemic. I don’t understand why since they ship almost everywhere now.

Yesterday I have completed the PBY Catalina display by using Clear Gorilla Glue.

In the background you will notice the Christmas gift I bought for my son in 2020 from Wholesale Hobbies in Edmonton, Alberta. The P-38 is still in its box.

Long overdue? I even have one I bought for myself!

I will finish ICM’s Bf 109F-4 first and then try to finish my son’s P-38 before Christmas time.

Next time…

As always things didn’t go as I had expected.

    With such an array of kits at hand, how do you ever decide what to build next?

      For the next build the decision had been made up after I decided to finish up what I had started… namely the PBY Catalina, the Tempest and the infamous ICM Bf 109F-4.
