This second part of dads aircraft model collection represents the late 1970s
and the early 1980s when his modeling interest turned away from aircraft towards
I think most of the models found in this gallery illustrate the 1970s modeling
standards very well at a time when plastic scale modeling was slowly becoming
a more serious hobby with aftermarket parts appearing more frequently (anybody
still remember Microscale decals?).
Weathering techniques such as dry-brushing made their way into the hobby and
accuracy became a point of great importance.
It was at this time when I was at a young age developing my own modeling skills
and often you could find dad and me both modeling at the kitchen table. I learned
a lot though most of the time dad just let me go my own way which was basically
copying whatever he did.
It was a great time though looking at all the offerings on the market today
I'm kinda reluctant to go back to those days.
Again I still like to stress one thing ;
Please do keep in mind these models were build during the late 1970s.
In those days plastic scale modeling standards weren't as high as they are today, so enjoy
them as what they are: models build more than 20 years ago.
