I have had a look back and realised that it has been just over 18 months since I actually did any modelling. In that time I have moved house, taken a higher management role at work, and then 2 days ago my wife and I had a beautiful baby girl (Evie). All of these things when taken individually can put a handbrake on your hobby time, but taken in combination things just ground to a complete halt !
Things have settled somewhat now, and while Karen and Evie are still in hospital resting, and I have 3 weeks break from work, I thought I might just take stock of my various ambitions here and decide on one project to focus on to "get my mojo back."
So here it is. Over the past few years I have been hunting down a range of 1/48 Boomerang kits with a view to putting together a comparative build log. I don't intend to build them all at the same time, and haven't set myself any time frame, it is just something that has been bubbling away in my brain-box for a while.
Below are the kits that I have at hand so far. I know that there have been several other limited-run kits released over the years, but they have eluded my search to date. If I come across them I will add them along the way.
I will start with the two Special Hobby kits.
I would also encourage anybody who is building a Boomerang kit to add their progress shots and comments to this thread, the more the merrier !
Anyway, that's it for the moment. I will post some detail shots of the kit parts soon. I'm really looking forward to getting back in action, I've missed the hands-on time hugely.
Cheers, D (proud new dad !!)
