Hello all and welcome to the Grand Re-opening of Maddog Manufacturing in 2020. I had a pretty good end of year which has set me up to make even more progress this year. So come on in and enjoy the tours!

I'll start with a reminder of what I finished the last year with still on the bench:



Today I managed to find some time so I sat down to get some of these moving. This is the results, starting with my aircraft.

The little Russian glider was still mocking me so I re-sanded down the seam I'd filled again for the fourth time. It still wasn't as smooth as I wanted but I'm tired of dealing with it. I shot another coat of green on this bird:



Later when it was dry, I went back and shot the second camouflage color on it. I free-handed this paint work with my Sotar 20/20 airbrush:



Moving on, I also decided to shoot the final green color on my Israeli Sufa since it was already masked and ready for it:



After that, I completed the masking so I could shoot the underside of this jet:



After shooting the grey, I forgot to take a pic before I masked off the nose and shot the gunship grey on it. So, here's the underside, with the nose still masked off and painted:



After all of that was done and dry, I removed all the tape and Silly Putty. I'm gonna need to do some touch ups but I'm happy with where this is now:



That's all I got done with my aircraft for now. Let's look at the progress I made on my armor and vehicles.




Since I had already masked my BMP-3 Early with Silly Putty when I masked the Sufa, I shot the next color on:



After that dried, I masked that second color and then shot the third one on:



After that was dry enough, I removed everything to see how it looked. I'm happy; there's not too much to touch up on this:





Since the T-15 Armata was also masked; I shot the second color on that one too:



Later it got covered and the third color shot on:



And once again, when it was dry, I removed everything to find only a tiny amount of touch up needed. This looks pretty awesome in this scheme:





Now on to my big trucks. First off, the AA-60 fire tender still had issues with the white on the sides so I re-shot it. That is drying now; no need to take pics again. Meanwhile, I decided to modulate the color on the big trucks that will be all one solid color. First was the MAZ tank transporter:



Next was the KZKT Iskandar:



Then I shot the KZKT Heavy Cargo Truck:



And finally, the MAZ Heavy Cargo Truck:



The last two models had some measure of camouflage on them, only two colors each. First off the Bereg Coastal Defense Gun got it's second tan color. I free-handed this camouflage on this and the Baikal Command Truck still with my Sotar 20/20 airbrush since it would have taken too much tape and Silly Putty to mask off all that green. I should have shot the tan first, then masked that and shot the green. Oh well, I did it in reverse instead and here's how the Bereg looks:





And finally I camouflaged the Baikal; but it only needed the second tan color on the command cabin so I modulated the drivers cabin:







And that is all I managed to get done on this; the first building day of the new year. Thanks all for looking in, as always; comments are welcome.

Thanks guys for the awesome comments!

Eric that is an interesting idea. I might see if that is possible. It would be easier to see how many I built from 2010 to 2019 since I'd been posting my Year End Reviews after each year. The main issue with that is whether enough Forums which held all those Year End Reviews are still around with all the threads.

Sharkman, none yet on the Widgeon or Shinmeiwa. I think the Widgeon is missing the canopy so finishing that will be an exceptional challenge. I am also looking for the Grumman Duck I started, but it seems to have been put away. As for the Shinmeiwa; I want to finish a lot more of these big trucks and other models to make room for it first. Then maybe I can get some progress done on it.

Barney my friend, I find a lot of time to work; I just don't get very many calls to give me work. It's also the same time as my bench time so if a call comes in that will make me money, I will skip the bench and go work. That's how I was able to pay for Chattanooga and the van to bring everything out. It is also the reason I only finished 20 models this past year, not 41 as usual. Thanks again my friend for commenting, I'm always glad to see your posts.


Thanks again Frank, Mike and Lawrence for the comments; I'm glad to see your posts!
