so I thought it time to have a go at this one I have had in storage for a while

yes Sir it is from the 80's but now I haven't had it since then, I built it as a kid I got it from John menzie and if I remember right it wasn't the best of fits. I bought this one over 5 years ago from eBay and it came with a diorama.

any way it was still bagged up as well (sorry no pic of that)

 

so here it is ready to go

There's always a first part to be glued!

 

I had one of these as well as the Blue Moon correction set, but ended up selling it all when I realized I was never going to put one that size together. Was also getting some correction parts off of Shapeways.

I have this kit half built and its been on the shelf for about 12 months. I bought it out of nostalgia as I had the kit as a kid too. Once I started building it I realised that it is a lot of work for something that is not too accurate when finished so I think it will probably stay half built and on the shelf.  Having said that I will be watching this and may get inspired by what you do to get mine finished.

Good luck!!
