But equally nice for its use of the Airfix figures I thought. Some of the close ups are very nice – even if some mould lines become apparent. Marvellous effort and far better than I have achieved with the Scots

That's some nice work.

The very first set of figures I owned. I convinced Dad to buy it for me in a technical and electronic hobby store; fall of 1975. Those are still nice figures and the paint job is superb.

Sorry I couldn't post a direct picture. If anyone works out how to do that, that would be cool.

Anyway, glad you like it. And I beat my good internet friend Armand too this, so I am feeling smug…

Now I need the find mine and try harder

I always thought some of the figures in that set were among the most characterful Airfix ever made, and the painting here certainly does justice to the material. Great work.

Your wish is my command oh might one.




Mine certainly did not look like that in the 70s

Wow amazing what can be done with a good paintjob!

The mould lines are a nuisance and remarkably hard to remove even with a very sharp blade…lovely work though.
