AIRFIX 1/76 Pontoon Bridge The third and final element of my whimsical canal diorama was actually the first thing that came to the bench – but it was also the last to get finished in the classic Airfix GB. Like many of us I received the original pontoon assault set as a Christmas present in the very early seventies. I had hours of fun ‘playing war’ and when I got into this modelling lark the other year I thought – ‘wouldn’t it be great to actually build the old pontoon again and try to do it some justice’. The build itself was easy enough – but I nearly came a cropper whilst trying to create the canal. Here are some shots – along with a cast of thousands… If you want to check out all the fun & games you can find the build thread here… Thanks for looking and I hope it brings back some fond memories of childhood - Steve
I started this one a while ago, and its become my 'go to' model if I'm between projects for some reason, Its going to be a Machinery workshop truck, with scratch built folding sides and Milicast machines, tools & bench The Pic of it so far.... Short attention span, slow progress, and lots to do make for a not very speedy build.... I really should make more effort on his one really... ATB Sean
I decided to have go at doing one of these using some spare bits I have now accumulated from my other QLs Its will be a Bedford QLC 'Cockatrice' Flame Thrower truck, This is being built on a left over chassis from an old Airfix Tanker, spare wheels. litteraly, from my other QLs and all the body work will have to be scratch built.... Already done is adapting the the wheels to fit the old kit axles, including brake drums, also I made the axle dampers as these will be totally visable on at least 3 of the wheels.... To the pics of it so far..... ATB Sean
