I haven’t abandoned the 1/72 scale, I still plan to continue in that for all my Tintin projects as well as more detailed Area 88 builds - probably incorporating the kits you linked to (especially the Trumpetor one).

I will also probably end up doing some dios in that scale in a few years when I move back to my house in Canada and out of my small apartment in Korea.  But for now, space being at a premium, I want to constrain my “in action” projects a bit.  I recently got a 1/144 747 kit and that one seemed big enough to be sure. ;)

I can’t say I haven’t waffled a bit though - especially after amassing several Area 88 kits in 1/100.  I bought them for the 1/24 figures included, but have started considering what I might do with the rest... :)

We have a saying "a silk purse from a sow's ear" meaning a great result from a poor starting point , and if that's a bad kit then you've certainly done that.

Looks really, really good  :thumbsup:

Now in Knutsford having a laundry and chores day.

As one does in Knutsford, at least when one's not singing about it  ;)

Glad you had a good journey over, and yes they have done a good job with the Great Eastern Hotel  :thumbsup:

The Head of Steam was renamed after the Doric Arch (it wasn't actually an arch) that was outside Euston Station until 1961 when the old station was redeveloped - read torn down  :banghead: Euston has no character what so ever.

Back before I had good references, and quality diverse decals, so I did it by hand.  I'll forgive myself for the inaccuracy  :lol:

Ah.  Then I painted my 100 wrong.  But to be fair, I was a teenager...
