  1. Hello Everybody... Im throwing a third build into the fray. I will be building a Gloster N.F.11 Meteor converted to a range test aircraft. Im not 100% sure if this means it is a T.T.20 Meteor. The aircraft is WM373 and is in a very good looking Red & White scheme. http://www.adf-gallery.com.au/gallery/Meteor-VT168/Meteor_NF_11_WM373_and_F_4_VT168_April_1964 http://www.adf-gallery.com.au/gallery/Meteor-WM373/Meteor_NF_II_WM373_Woomera_Photo_by_Bill_Aiken For this I will be using the Old 1/72 Matchbox kit.
  2. I call this a nostalgia build, but really it is anything but. I am exorcising some deep rooted modelling demons from my dim and distant past. I remember badgering my poor mother to get me this kit, on the fortnightly Friday shop at Tescos in Eastleigh. I was very young, and this must have been around 1979, the kit couldn't have been out long. She had obvious reservations that the modelling skills of her 6 or 7 year old son would not be up to the task, and she was of course correct. Getting the top wing on was way to much for me, and I remember - still with a shudder - the mess being chuck
  3. Good morning everyone... Id like to present my Matchbox 1/72 Vickers Wellesley. It represents an aircraft from 14 Squadron Port Sudan in Summer 1940. The only modification done to the kit is to pose the side windows open and mount a gun in the starboard position as similar to this photo. I understand there is some debate to the colors of these Wellesley’s but I think the contrast lends itself to being Dark earth/Light Stone or Sand. So in the end I opted to go with those colors.
  4. My entry for this groupbuild. Going to finish in the box top scheme, in the markings of VF-121, used as a radar operator and electronic warfare trainer. So what is in the box? Looking forward to this, should be a fun build.
  5. Here it is. I have a bit of a problem, it's mainly all here except for one blade on one prop. There were 2 props with one blade broken off each unit. I had the broken blade for one but the other is no where to be found. The foeward machine gun also had one barrel broken off but was still on the sprue so it was an easy fix. The decals look useable, kit was made in Germany? Never knew Matchbox had a facility in Germany.Well I guess I can start but I will have to decide what to do about the missing blade. Anyone have an old Matchbox Lancaster headed for the bin?---John
