Another road start/ build completed. I stopped into Dean's Hobby in Owosso, MI on my way to Olney, IL last April or May. I purchased a few kit then, including this old Matchbox Wessex. I had a set of the Testor's paints with me as well, so the paint scheme was pretty much OOB, only with leafs instead of dots  :thumbsup:

These colours are good to be seen in Canada's snow/ice
[the word "realistic" hurts my heart...]


There's just something about the Wessex that I love.  Very nice!  Building on the road can be a challenge, but you seem to be managing it nicely!
So I got that going for me...which is nice....


If I'm not building models, I'm out riding my dirtbike


And that's the M'box kit?

RESPECT!  :thumbsup:

It looks really good, and that scheme works very well too.
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

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

Nice Captain!  :thumbsup:

Thanks guys. Yes for sure, it was a bit of a dog of a kit ! I'm not really proud of the fit and finish, but alas, it's another one done and one step closer to my goal of getting all of the half starts and almost dones outta the way so I can hopefully think straight again !

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
