This is a real blast from the past, the box says 1976 and it's been lost in my parents loft for the last 40 years until the house was sold recently.

OOB Build with slight scratch cockpit. Roundels
Summer in Australia seems finally to be over and I'm ready to get back into building. The change in season happily coincides with this group build, which already has some great-looking projects underway. I'm going to build a Boeing 314 Pan Am Clipper in 1/144 from the Minicraft kit.
