I've posted a few of the model cars and planes I built in 2020, when lockdown led me to rediscover this hobby. Thought I'd make a thread to keep them all together, and for anyone else who's into this sort of thing to jump in too!

First up, here's a pic for @Revelator, who said the Bentley needed a driver. I spent some time poring over 3D printing catalogues for a figure that could pass as Bond.

    And just to prove it's not all Bond, a Swedish Air Force Saab Tunnan (Flying Barrel).

    Great thread idea! Amazing work, @Agent_99. You should post your other pics from the other thread here too. I have heaps of those little paint tins for the props, but no scale models built just yet. Love the old Bentley - I had one of those as a kid, but it was a diecast model, maybe Matchbox or Majorette in racing green with the flag on the sides.

    Well done with the decals too. The figure looks like Brosnan! How long did it take to make these?

    Superb! He looks very proud of his blower. If you have a pen with a very thin tip you might consider drawing a comma above his right eyebrow.

    Must admit over lockdown (and since having kids) I’ve done a little model making. It’s an extremely therapeutic way to pass time.

    I like what you have done here. 👍🏻

    I'll usually be on one project for a couple of months, most of that spent waiting for paint to dry! I could be more organised and do it quicker, but then I'd run out of space :)

    Ooh, yes. There's always improvement to be made!

    It's done a lot for my stress levels, and kept me from following up a day of staring at computer screens with an evening of the same.

    1:8, wow! I tend to go small as it's more forgiving of mistakes.
