On The Bench

Postby Al Wood on Tue 05 Sep 2017, 6:42 pm

These build have been languishing on the bench for some time:

1:48 Airfix Hawker Hurricane

1:72 Boulton Paul Defiant

1:72 Hobby Boss P-47

and, 1:72 Airfix Hawker Demon

Hopefully I will start moving these along.

That's some baby step that tops my build rate for the last two years! :lol: My problem at present is actually finishing something before getting dispirited with it! 4th time lucky...!

I hear that Defiant is a superb kit how you finding it?

Craig - I would be as bold to say the last 5 years mate!

Good to see you posting stuff again Al,

just pick one to get back into the swing of things.

I like it a lot Craig. I notice there is a 1:48 Defiant now. Is that supposed to be as good a kit?

Thanks James and I agree mate, the Hurricane seems to be the one I am favouring at the moment. :up:

Honest Geoff I will. These are all kits shelved because I lost interest, so just hoping to finish them one at a time. :snack:

It certainly seems well regarded. Some really good stuff coming out of Airfix lately just sadly very little for me, all wrong era or scale! I wish they'd scale up the forthcoming Phantom and their new tool Sea King.
