a couple of years ago i picked this up for the princely sum of £1.25 in a sale in ModelZone.....cant even get a pot of paint for that!.....didnt have much use for it but at that price it would have been rude not to!

another forum im on is having a 'Vintage Airfix GB'......rule is that the kit must have come out before 2000 although recent boxings are allowable......dont get more vintage than this since it was new tool in 1957!!!!....nearly 60 years old.

not much of a parts count, so no idea how long this is going to take

Cool, fer sure.  I can't wait to see what paintjob you'll give it.  Is that pilot waving, or giving us the "thumbs up" or just "the finger?"

Paul: when it comes to rigging have you considered EZ Line? I haven't used it myself, but Al tells me it is quite easy to use.
