2016 retrospect

Hello everybody!

2016 is in it’s last hours and I guess it’s time to wrap things up.

2016 hasn’t been my most productive year, to be honest. After projecting most of my modelling energy into finishing the ‘model of the year’ – AMK’s MiG-31BM ‘Foxhound’, I’ve set up a leasurily pace of modelling. It feels really good, not to worry about speeding up, but taking time to build something.

My readership also showed increased interest in my work with yearly page view rising from slightly more than 108.000 in 2015 to more than 186.000 in 2016! THANK YOU!!!

What brings in 2017? I’ll try to follow the same path – build unorthodox looking prototypes, challenge myself with complex builds and/or paint schemes, try something new and build something other than aircraft. Oh and the first project will be a double WW2ish project so stay tuned.

To my readers and followers – have a happy modelling year 2017!
