Bon chance mon ami

Happy New Years to you too Patrice and great to this this excellent Matchbox set being built here. I once had this kit, however only made up the Jeep. I still have some small bits and pieces floating in my spares box, so I look forward to watching your progress. 

Cheers, welcome aboard and best of luck.. Dave

Hi Patrice,


I will follow your tribulations on this forum too. 😉
I have never built this box, I will follow your construction with interest.

This looks good,  the bases were a brilliant idea too, I had a half track on the railway line base as a kid, glue everywhere and built in an afternoon with wonky wheels no doubt to.

Great fun

Good start and good luck with your build.

Good luck! I had this as a teenager and from memory did a pretty good job - even put some wet sand on it as "weathering". I wish I still had them. Looking forward to seeing your build!

Nice. I loved the crew, including the chap in his 'lemon squeezer' hat - and all the stowage you got with this kit.

Thanks Patrice 

Mrs Jockney is back to normal, and free of Covid.

Apparently the room service from myself left a lot to be desired and if our house was a hotel she wouldn't stay there again. 

The kids and I offered to help her pack but she didn't see the funny side ! :chair:

Now all I have to do is resist the temptation to add this kit to the stash!

Cheers Pat
