For this build I am doing the Jach 1/72 Baynes Bat kit. It is nice and simple, having just 12 plastic components and a little bit of photo etch. This is a 'family friendly' Blitzbuild as my partner has tolerated a lot of my plastic modelling this year which is why I started at 3pm - we had a nice walk with the puppy first. Hence this will be the most leisurely build, starting 'Boxing day' and probably finishing two days later on "Boxing day" My subject is a glider flown in 1943 to test the viability of the swept wing configuration for attachment to a tank to deliver said armour to the battlefield. This 'batty' idea was manifested in a 1/3 scale glider which had good handling characteristics but the project was cancelled before a full size wing was built. I'd also like to introduce to you 'Hammond', the rubber crocodile - already a veteran of two Blitzbuilds and many other model projects this year, who is here to see fair play.
