What Next?

UPDATE 3/4/2012: Voting has wrapped, and the winner is Revell’s PV-1 Ventura. Stay tuned!

The Tamiya and Revellogram Jugs are done. The Fiat G.55 is heading into the painting stages. The Ki-84 looks like it’s going to be a nice, simple restorative build. The big-ass Washington is a long-term project, and the also-big-ass H-K B-25 won’t be arriving for a month yet.

Oh, and I’ve suffered a sudden total loss of interest around building a 1/48 Bf 109.

In other words, I’ve got room to entertain another build. But what? The voting thing has been great fun in the past, so I’m turning the choice over to the community yet again.

The contenders…

1/32 Hasegawa Bf 109G-14

While I still very much enjoy 1/48 scale, in my opinion the tiny 109 is far better served in 1/32. This G-14 would actually be built as a tall-tail G-6 in service with the Swiss Air Force. So…basically what I had in mind with the Airfix kit, only a later model and larger scale.

1/32 Trumpeter P-47N Thunderbolt

I just finished two Jugs, so right now I need another like I need a hole in the head. But it’s whispering sweet nothings…

1/35 Trumpeter KV-2

Started this beast back in October, and it’s sat since. Goal would be finishing it off as a German-captured, chain-laden beast.

1/35 Tasca M4A3(76)W Sherman

Another October wonder that’s just waiting to hit the paint stage.

1/48 Great Wall TBD-1 Devastator

It’s new. It’s blue. It’s a brilliant kit of an aircraft saddled with an unjustly awful reputation. And it’s got foldy-wings!

1/48 Revell PV-1 Ventura

It’s also new. It’s also blue. It looks like  the bee’s knees, and the aircraft I’d build has a giant octopus graphic over the dorsal turret.

Time to vote! Chances are I’ll let this run through the weekend…curious to see what  comes out! It’s never the kit I guess it’ll be!

  2. You havn’t done a tank since moving,right ? I’d say finish the Tasca or KV.Every time i read one of your tank blogs,I pick up something new ! Keith R.

    • Fair warning – if the PV wins, I’m very much considering painting the cephalopod rather than playing with decals. May chicken out when it actually comes down to it, but I’m considering it…

      • No way Doogs. If you do the PV without the octopus it will be cheating. I daresay that the votes for the Ventura are votes for the octopus.

      • Oh, it’d totally be HEWEGO with the octopus. It’s the only build option with the chorus of machine guns singing out of the front, and I’m all about guns in the nose of anything. Just saying I’m considering masking and painting the octopus rather than using the decals.
