As soon as I am able to get back into modelling I will try and fill in some of the gaps in the Matchbox range. After the Stuka I will probably do two Hellcats, a P-38,  a B-26 Marauder and then hopefully some others.

Thanks for starting that Lysander build thread, however you haven't quite finished that Wimpy yet - you naughty boy!! 

 

This PK-7 Lysander now makes 50, yes 50 individual Matchbox kits being built (hacked?) in this current GB - well done to all.

There's also indications of other great kits that are not on the above list also being started, so it's only onwards and upwards from here.

 

Cheers.. Dave

Also missing from the 'where are they?' list are both of the Lightnings. I'd have a go, but time is in short supply right now.

Great Steve,

So do I sign you up for another 10 on top of your already commited tally of 10??

At this rate, you could probably do a Group build on your own!!

I think yourself, TonyW, tonyot, GREG DESTEC et al - have made many old (and hopefully new) modellers stop and take a second look at these great Matchbox kits. 

It would also appear that you've raised their value as I've only seen prices on the rise whilst visiting the various online websites.

 

Cheers and good show.. Dave

Funny that's what I was thinking Dave, some of the small kit's are still reasonable well under ten pound's but I've noticed a hike

in some re-stocked kit's on my favourite pre owned site,the Boston was £11:99 for a long time sold and a new arrival now £14:99 a lot of

the smaller kit's now at the £10 mark where they were a couple of pound's cheaper,still If we want to build them we'll have to grin and

bare it! I think it would be a shame if the Mustang,P-40 and Buffallo don't make an appearance:wink:

I should be able to get some modelling done on my two kits this weekend.

I have maybe about 8 or 10 others I plan to do; some are not on your list.

I'll look them out later, photograph box/contents and start a build thread for them

Black Knight, that'll be great to see.

Photo's of your lovely silver painted Tempest got me all enthused about Matchbox again, so thanks for the inspiration.

At this rate we will certainly crack the ton, well played to all contributers.

 

Cheers.. Dave.

Thanks for “pinning this post” V-P. I’m currently on family holiday so have not been able to keep this as up to date as I’d like. I’ll be in normal surroundings this Friday so will be able to adjust it more frequently then. 

 

Im still amazed at how many Matchbox kits are being built here - it’s so good to see. 

 

Cheers.. Dave
