John Eaton's Build Logs

It doesn't look like this little corner has taken off, so I will try to get it going.

I have had a web site for many years and a large part of it is plastic model build logs. I will put an index of kits I have built here, but to start, here is the link to my plastic modeling "front page":

http://goldeneramodel.com/mymodels/mymodels.htm

As you can see the only order is when I built the first of some type of model, for instance the P-40 is only there once but there are actually 5 and some were built fairly recently. But in general the order is from first built to the most recent builds.

Wow, that is a heapin’ Body of work! The Gigant caught my eye as did the Raider on a first pass. I have the 321 on the Shelf of Someday...about 80% done. A Raider is in the stash. This will be good down time browsing.
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

I just went and gazed at all your work Joe. I must say you are a great builder... I spent quite a bit going over your quiver of flyers and they are all so well done. To top it off you are prolific as well so there was lots to look at. I enjoyed it and will go back again for reference or when I need inspiration.
Now that we know that.... What have we learned?...

Great builds John, I remember having a look at your sites years ago after follow your link on Agape - you have a superb collection. I particularly love that Curtis R3C-2, I thought that was an RC build when I saw the thumbnail!

Thanks, guys. I recently added a tabular index that is ordered alphabetically by aircraft type. It's getting to where it takes too long to go through the picture index, and sometimes I can't find what I know is in there when I am using the picture index.

Most impressive John! You have so many great models sir! I note that you painted your Meteor Prototype just as I did. Boy, one can open a whole can of worms over at Britmodeller over the original colors. :wink: I feel the best evidence points to the scheme you, and I, have chosen. She looks superb too! I'll be back again and again to examine all those beauties. :grin:

Thanks, Gary. Britmodeler has a lot of good posts, but I will not ever be able to make some of those Brits happy :whiteflag: Best to just do the best we can and move on.

You're quite welcome too John! And thanks for the good laugh too. :lol: Yeah, some o' those guys are a mite prickly aren't they? I don't think the administration there knows quite what to think of me; I've had an interesting exchange or two with the owner and the mods. :wink:
