Nice build, a lot of the old matchbox armour kits still look the part. :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Nicely done. I was rather surprised myself at how well these old Matchbox kits hold up. I recently build their Humber armored car and it was a nice little kit.
We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.

Why did I expect this to be painted red with 'G-ACSS' on the side?  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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