  1. I would like to propose a group build: ‘A kit you built as a kid’ (let’s classify this as before the age of 18) (i don’t know if this has been done before - if it has please delete this post.) But that childhood build should be memoral for you, and hence accompanied with a story of why and when in your first post. The participant should track down the specific kit (which could be in later-guise for example a reboxing, or added parts / decals in a later re-issue but essentially the ‘same kit’.) One can build the kit to any standard (of course it does no
  2. Hello All, Attached are some pictures of a nostalgia build I completed recently. It s vintage Monogram Avenger. I trimmed off all the working feature bumps and bits , split the bomb bay doors, drilled-out the exhaust, trimmed t, refined the pilots machine gun area, removed the turret gunner from the sat (one figure was enough to paint lol), reworked the torpedo a bit, replaced the kit wheels and tires with spare ones from a Accurate Miniatures Avenger and replaced as many rivets as I lost during sanding. Paint is Vallejo over a primer of Tamiya acrylic. Final matt is Vallejo. Marking
  3. With thanks to tomthounaojam for inspiring me to break out my ancient Hasegawa A-4E Skyhawk kit (which I had first built as a college student in the early 1970s), and to tc2324 for his excellent "Sundown Launch" build, I present to you my VFA-203 "Blue Dolphins" A-4L in-flight action build. Thanks for viewing! (My WIP can be found here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235060938-nostalgia-build-172-hasegawa-a-4-skyhawk/
  4. Hi all, Just got this one finished for the Matchbox GB here on the forum - those with an eye for general accuracy or rivets, please look away now! Talk about a trip down memory lane. While I never built this one as a kid, I remember their kits and great boxart and how they seemed to be in every newsagent and corner shop. Happy days. The full build thread is here but to recap: Kit: Matchbox PK-128 Build: OOB except for tarting up the pilots' seats: Paints: White from a rattle can, all others Revell Acrylic with a brush. Klear. Decals: From the kit!
  5. I started this build a couple of weeks ago as part of a Nostalgia build on another forum. I thought I would share it here as I am new on BM. I wanted to build this kit as I remember this being one of the first kits I built as a kid. I wanted to keep this build as close to OOB as possible only using some aluminum tubing for the guns and pitot tube. I was pleased with the fit of the kit in general. I really only ran into issues with the decals. The smaller stencils fell apart when they hit the water. I managed to save one of the stencils and all of the larger decals. It was fun to build this
