  1. A week into the GB and I've finished deliberating about which of my numerous fails will get another chance. What I really need is a KUTA of KUTA GB. I've dragged out the Matchbox Spitfire First started in the &5th anniversary GB and being in memory of my Dad it's a long overdue commemoration. AND it was a Christmas present from my children many years ago, so that should add up to KUTA enough and this time I'm really going to do it! Be that as it may, my resolve is flagging already; I'd forgotten just how much of a child of its time the moulds are- at least the sink
  2. As my Stuka did not take long, I thought I would try a 7th and final build for this GB (assuming you count the trio of Emils as 3 not 1). I was considering my Italeri He-111 but it is an H-6 version which I believe did not enter service until 1941. Ok, I could probably convert it and I have decs for an H-2, but I decided to go with this instead. AFAIK this is the old Frog kit which I built shortly after it was released in 1971, a year ahead of the Airfix inline engined E/F version. It was released again by Revell from about 1977 onwards, but for some reason they also reboxed it as
  3. After a popular vote - well who can resist requests by such esteemed BM'ers such as @JOCKNEY and @Enzo Matrix the A-10 will be the victim of this blitzbuild. Not sure of start time yet but there is a back-story to why this kit stayed in my stash. In June 1977 I set myself the challenge of walking across the North York's Moors - not by the more usual west-east route but north to south from Whitby to Pickering. Staying in Youth Hostels along the way it was only a two day walk. I think it was on the first day that I was at the top of hill looking for viewpoints to get my
  4. For my entry in this group build, I'm building the 2nd kit I built as a kid in the late 70s. This kit popped up as a recommendation while I was looking on TradeMe (Kiwi auction site) for another kit I remember building way back when. My eyes opened a mile wide and I had a bid on it within seconds. A week later it was in my hands and I opened it up for a look. My, how things have changed, and memory plays trick on us. Searching for info and ideas was how I found this fine website, Scalemates, and Hannants. I didn't want to risk disappointment with the original decals so ordered an Xt
  5. Just finished this 1998 boxed Sepecat Jaguar T2 as EV of 6 Sqn RAF in 1997. I was well into the build before I found a post on another modelling site that was reviewing various Jaguar T2 model kits. The recommendation for this Matchbox kit was to give it a miss. Oh well I had already started. The injection moulding was quite poor with parts of the main undercarriage well structure missing and the nose cone distorted. The fit of the parts left a lot to be desired with large gaps requiring filler. More filler was required to reconstruct the nose, but I am not convinced that I have the
  6. Jonathan Mock's article on the old Matchbox 1/72nd scale Messerschmitt Bf109E in the latest issue of MAI started last Friday a conversation between my father and I about the good old kits and how fun it would be to try building those kits again. Shortly thereafter we stood in the basement looking for old Matchbox kits. My father give me four kits for this nostalgia trip. The three Matchbox kits in the picture plus an older Airfix Gladiator in the original bag issue. I started the P-12E on Saturday. I had decided not to paint it because of the green and yellow plastic. Now it
