You have to admit, for it's age it's not a bad kit. I wonder if Revell is cleaning up these old molds? no flash on yours and my Tiger Moth is the same way, very well molded..... and cheap.... Kodoos to Revell for releasing these kits again!!

That still gives you plenty of time (at the rate you go.. B) ) when you get back home.

Erm. I'm still wrapped around the axle trying to figure out which aircraft to do....

1/24 Hurricane IIc calls to me, but so does my 1/32 Hobbycraft Sea Fury and my own Revell Beaufighter (I have a bunch of 'em).

Hmm....

My vote is for the Fury! (Yeah, I know... FAA not RAF. Close enough for me!)

I thought about it... I think I'm going with the Beau, mainly because I haven't built one since I was 12 or so. Haven't settled on markings, but am partial to various Far Eastern theater versions.

I'm waiting on the Fury as there are reportedly going to be detail bits coming from Fisher at some point ;)

Regards,

Modelling finally this evening.... the Beaufighter will be more work than I originally thought as I'm doing (or want to do) quite a bit of scratch-building on the interior.

Maybe the group build isn't the right venue for this, given my time constraints. Could be the Hurri IIc after all.

Sometimes I think it'd be fun to be able to do this full time... :rolleyes:

Hi guys

Made it back from Melbourne FL. Late on Friday.

I have a lot of stuff to do around the house.

Hopefully I will get back to work on the models next weekend.
