Craig,
I am lucky if I can figure out my next build let alone what I want to do through the year. Usually I end up regulated to what review kits I get.

Looks like you've got it all sorted hope it all goes to plan. I've just put half eg kits I had planned to build last year back in the loft.

Nice looking selection for the year's builds......I wish I could be that disciplined!
Other than GBs I go into the stash with a specific kit in mind and wander out again clutching something entirely different. Sometimes I wander out just trying to remember what it was I was doing in the garage in the first place......

Like the look of those planned builds Craig, especially the Cold War ones naturally ;-)

I like to have some idea of what I'm going to build although this inevitably tends to be a rolling plan that rarely pans out as intended :roll:

Some real tasty projects there. The ESCI F-4's have always been a favorite of mine.

Quite a pile there Craig, I'd stick the Flanker towards the bottom if I was you. Dry fitting on mine shows it needs a bit of work. Looking forward to seeing how you get on with the Lightning.

what markings are you looking to use,i like the early flanker scheme with the green nose cone but i might deck it out in the ukrainian zigzag scheme from the revell boxing

Ha your always making things hard for yourself! You know me Craig, easy way means I get it finished. Mine is way down the list at the moment although I like the look the look of the new Revell /Zvezda SM version.

A very interesting pile of kits there Craig and the Lightning is a great way to start the year. I gave up planning builds for the year ahead a few years ago as the plans never really got beyond the end of January. Bit like New Year's resolutions. Which I've also long given up on :grin:
