Thanks Fred. :thumbsup:

I went to the site and all I could find out was that the box was changed in 2008. :rolleyes:

I was molded in 1960. Am I acceptable? ;D

Joke aside. Can a model done basically with VEB Plasticart Boeing 707 and Frog/Novo/Eastern Express Britannia?

Hmmm, historical Plasticart did a DC-8, not a 707, so, if you have a Plasticart 707, must be a VERY modern and unknown to me mould.  ;)
On the other side, if what you have is a DC-8, I can officially certify that the moulds you propose using are MUCH older than 1985.  :thumbsup:

Are wood kits from before the advent of plastics allowed?  :rolleyes: ;D

In my view, certainly  ;D

Chris, I think the rules are great- I like a hard calendar date of the 1st and 31st to start and stop as it is easy to remember, but as GMT can throw some off, perhaps the start/finish time should be from where you sit.  Those in Tonga and Guam can kick things off....

......  I'm a  1952 model.     



As am I, although I suppose the tooling commenced in 1951 ?  :o

With some thinking that 1985 isn't that long ago I had a little think, working nights does that to me, and realised that is Thirty One years ago!! :o

So that's roughly one generation!

Dang, my memory is going. I remember picking it up in a consignment load at a now defunct hobby shop in Mississauga, same time as I got that awful old MiG-19 that got turned into the Flunker.

Looks like the F-19 Stealth kits only came out in 1986 so they are off the list. Same for the SR-75 Penetrator.  :-X

I do have a few old Kopro kits which are easily dated back to the 1970s along with some Matchbox kits.

Huh, Old?

To misquote Crocodile Dundee 'THAT'S not old, before 1946 is old!  ;D ;)

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I've got a couple of old Javelins, if I can get my butt into gear one of them may get Viggenised!
