That's brilliant.  Not only a rarely seen model but a conversion to boot.  Beautifully rendered.  Yet another interesting and unusual type that Matchbox kitted.  What a shame they are no longer with us.

From shelf of shame to pride of place.

You've done a stunning job with this one Adrian.

Wonderfully incredible @AdrianMF.

 

I think I recall when you started this! Great job overall but I am really liking the decals.

 

Good work!

Hello, that looks state of art and well done, although I like armed one more. Ok I'm just an old Matchbox junkie, but who cares. Anyway. :goodjob::goodjob:

Meatbox8 said it best: Not only a rare subject, but a conversion to boot.

 

And well-rendered, too!

 

I have one partially started, before i got seduced by the seemingly more straightforward Academy PB4Y-1. Say what you will about Matchbox and their sometimes ham-handed treatment of surface detail, but more often than not they get the shapes right, and IMHO they got the shape of the nose better than most.

Very nice Adrian and definitely worth seeing it through to the end!

 

By the way, what brand of decal paper did you use?

 

Thanks
