  1. This was part of a branch group build amongst a small bunch of friends. I've already built one of these kits as a fighter and after issues with the canopy I came up with the idea that attaching the glasswork to the fuselage halves before assembling the fuselage would be the best way forward. As it stands of the three kits in the branch build, one id in the bin one languishes on the shelf of doom but mine is finished. I wanted to build a bomber for which the parts are already in the kit. I've always prefered the short nose Blenheim since being bought one by my uncle at the 1964 Finningley Air Show. A fabulous end to a fabulous day for a young lad. The Frog kit has a different scale to the Airfix ones I had built ( See the Frog Squad Group Build elsewhere for loads of memory joggers). It came with little tubes of matt paint so different from the Humbrol gloss I has used before. My memory says the decals were for a early machine with the large yellow outer rings to the roundels So I was set. I used the Xtradecal sheet to make a 139 Squadron machine soon after delivery. I found a photo of the very machine in 'Bombing Colours by Michael J F Bowyer, a suitable retro reference for a pseudo nostalgic build. Thanks for looking
