Looking back 2013

Found this little guy when I was at home in California. This was my starting point. I believe this was the first 1/43 car that I built. A Nissan Skyline GTR Nismo, a plastic kit from Rosso. (The first white metal 1/43 kit would be the BBR Ferrari F399).

Time really flies. We're less than a week away from 2014. What happened to 2013?

Completed Projects

Although the amount of travel I did was a lot less than in 2012, model building productivity did not improve. This year, I managed to finish only 2 kits:
Ferrari F1-90 (641/2) French GP 1990
Audi Quattro Monte Carlo Rally 1981

The Racing43 Audi kit was the first of many things. It's the first non-F1 model, the first non-Tameo kit completed for a while. Most importantly, the first time I participated in Ws43-san's 皆で作ろう会. It was especially fun to read about other participants' build process and learn from it. 

Kits Purchased

Just like almost everyone's new year's resolution, my self imposed 5 kits purchasing quota failed. The kits I bought this year included the following:
Formula Models
1968 McLaren M7A Belgian GP
1978 Lotus 79
1981 Audi Quattro Monte Carlo Rally
1997 Gulf Racing McLaren F1 GTR Le Mans 24H
1984 Toleman TG183B
1983 Rothmans Porsche 956 Le Mans 24H
1988 March 881 San Marino GP
1989 March CG891 Monaco GP
2006 Renault R26 British GP
2013 Red Bull Racing RB9 German GP

Way more than 5. Sigh...

Planning ahead, I should finish the CG901 first and then figure out what to do next.
