    I did the Academy kit as a RNZAF version using the decals from Xtradecal these were a bit better than the Ventura decals... The Academy kit is nice and built up better than the Revell kit... Have fun... Plasto..

    An observation from my experience with youngsters building models would be every time I let the 'Adult modeller' who 'knows about seam filling and correct sized roundels' out of the bag the kids turn off... For them the journey is as much fun as the destination.. Which is as it should be. It's easy to get too caught up in all of the 'detail' kids just are not interested in that in the main IMHO. Getting them building stuff they are interested in is the key. Skills and correct technique and being able to deliver a dissertation on 'RAF Dark Green 1940 -43' can come later.

    I agree Trevor... Generally Kids don't make models like they used to... When I've observed kids doing models which is mainly my own having a go a building stuff or the kids that come through the Airfix Make and take sessions we run as a club sticking a Spitfire or Yellow Gnat together generally they tend to ask which kit is easiest to do and decide what to do based on that and how 'awesome' the finished thing looks on the packet or box... Some parts I personally might regards as essential such as the cockpit interior or tail planes are regarded as superfluous and a Spitfire with black and green camo and yellow undersides is perfectly ok... Most kids ( but not all) I think have a different 'value system' to adults when it come to model kits... As an adult with some knowledge on model building and its accoutrements I agree the Airfix Defiant is the best proposition in 1/48...

    Ha the fidget spinner. Top marks for currency. I'll rephrase the question. If I was 10 and liked building models and got this would I be unhappy?

    If I was 10 and got one would I be unhappy?
  13. Here... Roy has a load of correction bits for both this kit and the Erla G10. http://barracudacals.com/proddetail.php?prod=BR32169 I think it's a minor nit pick and your far to far along on this one to worry about it... You can sort it on the next one... Plasto...
