  1. Hi All Ah the memories ! I used to love building these things as a kid back in the late 70s. The bases were/are so cool. I particularly remember being a fan of this one because of the palm tree - something not much seen in the lush green Valleys of South Wales I'm about a 3rd of the way into a big project at the moment (started last September ) and needed a bit of a break so I picked this little beauty up. 2 sprues, a couple of tracks, a decal sheet only just bigger than a stamp, and an instruction booklet.......There seemed so much more to it when I was 9 years old ! So, I built this last weekend, most of it completed on Saturday. It's a lovely little kit, nice crisp detail, and pretty good fit; given it's age, I was expecting the opposite and with plenty of flash to clean for more fun. I even painted it this time Anyhoo here's my blast from my past brought into the here and now. I'm tempted to get a few more. I hope you like it. I normally avoid doing figures but really had no choice but to have a go with this kit. I applied a bit of weathering and overall it turned out a little darker/dirtier than I anticipated. As usual, from the photos I can see a couple of areas that I can tidy up. Especially with the washes. I hadn't fully appreciated how small these were back then. Cheers Gaz
