  1. So I have just come across this Video on YouTube which gives an insight and history into the Matchbox Mitsubishi Zero. At 07:09 the author states that it is infact a Frog release kit inside the Matchbox box (From 1974). It’s moulded in grey plastic (as can been seen from where the young me hasn’t painted) and the under surface wings where you just glue the undercarriage legs in (No doors or wheel wells) is like the image I posted above. This all ties in with my memory of a black border along with the art work on the box as well. Fascinating stuff, I think I’ve got to the bottom of the mysterious Zero kit.
  2. Thank you for your help everyone, I did not expect this response! It has helped me massively. I think I’m going to strip it of paint, tidy it up somewhat and create a downed plane diorama! Tom
  3. I’m tempted to believe it maybe Matchbox as I certainly remember the black box and the art work.
  4. Thank you Graham for your reply, I’m going to do some more research into this aircraft and the different kits.
  5. My word, thank you! I’ve scoured the Internet so much and you nailed it for me in a few minutes! Thank you again!
  6. A long shot and I wasn’t sure which part of the forum to post this, but can anyone help me identify this aircraft and more specifically the kit? I built it when I was around the age of 7 during the early/mid 90’s. I recently found it at my parents after my mum had kept it (it’s been severely damaged over the years). Any help would be appreciated massively. Tom
  7. I‘ll grab some of that next time I go to the model shop. Thanks for the suggestion.
  8. Thank you everyone for your nice comments. I‘m new to the forum so I‘m hoping to post my build photos as well as the finished products. Pete, I think you’re right, the periscope glass was a bit of an after thought if I’m being honest. Tom
  9. Here is my recently finished 1/35 Tamiya M41 Walker Bulldog. I’m still relatively new to modelling and especially armour modelling. It was my first time trying some new techniques and I’m quite proud as to how it came out. Still lots of improvements to be made but I had so much fun making it! Cheers, Tom
  10. Your last sentence made me chuckle! Welcome.
  11. It isn’t Ian, it’s the old classic Tamiya Ausf F/G. I really can’t wait to get stuck into it!
  12. Hello everyone, I recently discovered this forum after doing some research for a Panzer II build I plan to undertake and I have been glued to the forum ever since. Currently working on the Airfix 1:72 Eurofighter Typhoon while I wait for some materials for the Panzer to arrive! Cheers, Tom
