First model off The Cutting Mat for 2017 is Kittyhawk's 1/48 Super Etendard Modernise. Additional images have been put up on the Completed Builds page.
I've decided 2017 should be "The Year of 32 scale" for me, so despite my first project for the year- any year- usually falling in a heap, Im pushing ahead with the Kittyhawk P-39 Airacobra, which, according to reviews, is not the easiest build.
This one will be done as a RAF Airacobra Mk1 from 601 SQN though, just for something different, well, not really different as most of my U.S aircraft seem to end up in British or Australian markings
Most of you reading this will have probably made your way here from my Facebook page, Cutting Mat Capers and I'd like to thank you all for liking the FB page and dropping in here to have a look too. To be honest, I don't think FB is the best platform for comprehensive WIP posts, hence me starting this site. It's not my intention to use this site as a soapbox for my thoughts on the hobby or where its heading, others do that, and far better than I could.
This will simply be a place where I can document my scale modelling journey and current projects. I hope you will continue to check in.
I'm in my fifties and live in Regional Victoria, Australia.
