Here my first WIP on the forum,

It’s an old matchbox kit, gotta love those oldies.

The build is quite easy despite the mangy tail, big gap there, nothing some putty can’t fix tho.

I decided to add a different pilot (I scratch built one from an esci figure)

The model had a black coat as primer and then tamya Bare Metal by rattle can.

I usually give them a coat of future before wash and decals.

The stand I’ve made from an acrylic scarf holder.

Here some pics :

Looks great. Nice to see someone building these old kits and not trying to correct and over detail it.

Classic airplane.

Great build mate. I am a lover of the older Matchbox kits, having built heaps of them when I was a Yonker. They do have fit problems, simply from the design of the kit, but they make up into a great representation of the aircraft/tank/car/etc on which they are based. and for a lovely display model, as you've shown, they look great. Well done!
