Neddy Posted July 17, 2022 Share Posted July 17, 2022 (edited) This will be my next big project, one which I've been saving (savouring?) for a while and looking forward to starting now I feel I have the confidence to make a half decent job of it. I have no idea of it's vintage other than it's pretty old and I remember it first being launched back in the late 1960s or early 70s. I bought it as a previously owned kit from Kingkit who check and guarantee complete - as you'll see from the photos they've been pretty thorough about it too... The box simply says "Made in U.S.A. by THE ERTL COMPANY, Dyersville, Iowa" with a part no. of #6722. It has obviously been inspected and carefully re-packed - this is what greeted me when I first opened the box... Each package carefully heat-sealed and it all looks to be in excellent condition... I must admit I'm impressed by Kingkit, this is far better packaged than most new kits I've bought. I've seen one of these (I think) already built on this forum, to an amazingly high standard which I have no hope of equaling, but it will serve not only as a spur to do my best but an unashamed crib if I hit problems! The body colour will be Tamiya TS-53, a beautiful rich dark metallic blue, with interior colours yet to be decided but I have white and light grey Humbrol satin paints in stock, plus a Revell Lufthansa Blue satin acrylic which has just arrived and looks promising. This won't be a quick build as I want to take my time, savour the experience and put as much into it as I'm capable of, so updates may be few and far between but I'll try and make it interesting.
