SAAF Tunnan
« on: August 11, 2009, 08:15:00 pm »
Roger the Cabin Boy picked up this kit at last years Dallas show.  It sat in the TMD* until Mrs. Scooter took it (and the rest of his stash) over to RtCB's place about three weeks ago.  After unpacking said stash, and seeing all of those lovely SAAF profiles done recently, he snatched up this box and started work.  It was finished within the time Mrs. Scoot was there and made the trip back with her and is now in the US collection awaiting it's first showing. 

1/72 Matchbox kit.  Phil can give you the details.

Details?  No details at all, just trenchlines.   ;D

Looks good to me!  Trenchlines don't look too bad, the old matchbox kit might be a better bet than the Airfix/Heller kit I failed on recentley.  To be fair it wasn't really the kits fault I messed it up.
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.

It's based on the 1 Sqn Sabre scheme

Lovely!

I'm assuming the decals are the really nice Leading Edge SAAF Sabre ones?
