  1. Well, with the revelation that the GB will go on till October, I decided there's time for another single seater. This time it'll be the 1976 Messerschmitt 109 in 1/72, from the absolute high point of Airfix. I think any of the early-mid 70s aircraft are absolutely superb kits, from looking at it I wonder why they bothered with the more recent tooling. Here's the lovely box art, I think Roy Cross. This is a first edition with "new" star and even swastika on box and decals transfers. I'm probably going to go for the tropical alternative and save the Galland transfers for an Aldi new tool. Here's the sprues. Many of the parts have fallen off over 42 years. I think they're all there, though! The stand hasn't been nicked for once. The canopy is really clear. Too late to use the complaints slip. The transfers look fine, not too yellowed. Straightforward instructions, should go together easily. Not absolutely sure how the pilot flies the plane without a joystick. The colour scheme is all in Airfix paints. I always found them better quality than Humbrol, I have a few that still work though I'll be airbrushing acrylics. Parts are all washed and I'll start putting it together tomorrow evening. It's going to be light relief between filling and sanding my Supermodell Can't Z.506B whilst carefully assembling a Tamiya Mosquito for our club display at Telford! Cheers Will
