Hi All, I recently joined britmodeller, and completed a cheapy little 1:72 hurricane, rough and ready no doubt but a way to get the eye in so to speak.  i got the occre bounty launch from my mother in law for Christmas ( no idea where she got the idea but a lovely gift anyway) I've never built a wooden model, ( nor any model since I was a kid to be honest) and I had a quick search on here to see if there were any logs to follow, but no luck.

 

does anyone have any knowledge of this kit?  is it a good kit for a first timer?  should I stick to airfix?  that kind of thing..  

any help or advice would be most appreciated.

if there is nothing I'm more than happy to post some pictures of the contents if anyone is interested

 

I'm not expecting to turn out anything of the quality I see on here by the way. i am well aware of my limitations and have set my expectations at a moderate level. so no pressure on me or you guys to reply

Many thanks

Not the point, modelling is for enjoyment allegedly,  it's your model to enjoy however it comes out.

I believe that launch should be just the thing to " get your feet wet".

Occre makes some good kits, once you complete the launch you should look at their other kits and pick an " intermediate"  kit. Dont go for the 10,000 part kits just yet.

(You will just frustrate yourself, and it will take forever to finish it.... ask me how I know ...)
