I hope every one had a great holiday, but now that Christmas is over its time to get back to the workshop! Santa was good to me this season as three new kits were added to my modest stash. A 1/72 F-16CG/CJ Fighting Falcon from Academy, Revell's 1/72 scale Panzerhaubitze 2000, and a 1/48 Stuka also from Revell.
I can't complain about any of these kits. For the first time in our twelve year history together, my wife purchased a model for me without my knowledge. The Stuka, which she picked from the shelves of the local AC Moore, is a common kit but one I have never built. The F-16 is particularly exciting because it is the aircraft I work on as a member of the US Air Force, and for some one who models within the limited space of a dining room table, 1/72 is the perfect scale for modern day jets. Lastly, the Panzerhaubitze is a mouthful to say and a very unique subject; a nice digression from the aircraft I typically build.
Also under the tree for me were nine Star Wars action figures which will look fantastic in several large scale dioramas I have planned for this year.
So, 2013 bodes well for the Workshop, and I would love to chat a little bit more about what else I got for Christmas, but I've got some building to do!
