  1. At last, here is my Matchbox 1/72 A.W. Siskin IIIA. Decals courtesy of @72modeler Wheels were sourced from an SH A17 Nomad as I would never be able to paint the kit wheels and felt these looked far better either way. Now to sort the wheels on an Airfix Demon... That's all for now, Thanks all, Tweener
  2. Hey all, I've made good progress on the Matchbox 1/72 Siskin IIIA. Thanks to Mike ( @72modeler) new decals are on the way. Other than forgetting to attach the gunsight in time, I'd say it's a very pleasant build, and I am thankful that the top wing went on well. That's all for now, Stay healthy, Tweener
  3. Having failed to complete a Felixstowe for the Floatplane GB I decided on a little break from it and tackled a Siskin instead. These Matchbox kits go together really well and is completed pretty muck OOB. Rigging is stretched sprue, I usually use fishing line but sprue has worked out easier in this case as little of the rigging goes through the bottom wing and is therefore difficult to tension.Extra points for anyone who can spot the howling mistake!
  4. Kora Models has just released four 1/72nd Armstrong-Whitworth Siskin Mk.III kits. - ref.

  5. Both Airfix and Amodels Avro 504's have the early type of undercarriage with a central ski. After the WW I several Avro 504's (e.g Swedish ones) got a Siskin style undercarriage strut arrangement like in the Matchbox Siskin. Are there any aftermarket struts, plastic, resin or metal to get?
  6. Just finished the Matchbox Siskin. I am impressed by the excellent engineering these kits had. Fun build, landing gear was a bit of a terror, but still fun. Greg in OK
  7. Hi, Over the past few weeks I've put this little collection of 1/72 scale 1930's fighters of the RAF together. They are a mixed bag of Airfix and Matchbox kits, some old, and some new. I must admit, they have all been a pleasure to build. Some of the kit decals couldn't be rescued owing to their +40 years age, but on the whole they went on ok. Additional decals came from friends half-used sheets. Thank you John and Chris. These aircraft certainly add a little colour to the display shelf. I have a couple more to build, but so far the collection includes: Airfix - Demon, Bulldog, Gladiator
  8. Hi folk,s my lucky son just received twenty plus old bi-plane kits from his wife's Grandfather and some real gems there are but he kindly gave me this little beauty! So an iconic little British fighter from for many my age an iconic British kit maker.The box and content's are in great condition and the decal's look fine so when thing's get back to normal and the hols are over off we go!
