Foxbat Posted November 24, 2020 Share Posted November 24, 2020 (edited) When you're up against deadlines and have a bench full of incomplete GB models, the only sensible option to get going again is to start another one. I don't currently have a completed 109 in the collection, so this is a chance to rectify that. This Italeri kit is a rebox of the Academy kit that was a re-pop of the Hobbycraft kit from the early 90s. I've built a Hobbycraft 109G so I'm hoping that will stand me in good stead for this one. I'd bookmarked the kit because of the markings but wasn't mad keen to get one at full price. Jadlam came to the rescue - they had it in their clearance section at 1/3 off and I had some reward points to trade in so suddenty it was half price with free postage. You really can't turn that sort of deal down. Only ordered it this morning so all these pictures are stolen from that interwebs. The box: Sprue shots. It's quite a simple kit but it builds OK and looks good enough for me: The decal sheet. There is a massive clue here as to where I'm going with this: It had to be the Italian Job (and you wouldn't believe how hard it was not to use that as my title ) It was the green scheme with minimal mottling that swung it for me. Think even I can manage that with my collection of hairy sticks. As ever, I'm waiting for the postie now so I can get started and add some photos of my own.
