I know these are rare and the box looks almost mint, but holy moly look at that price!

That's just SILLY!  :banghead:

I built mine into a slot car 5 yrs ago.

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! :)

The box looks pretty bashed about to me.

I'd clocked that rip off merchant a few weeks back.  30 notes for an Airfix Supermarine S6B?  I have some advice for him regarding sex, travel and his mother.

Fun fact - one of the characters in an episode of The Sweeney is seen building one of these.

"Please dial *617 at this time"

"We're the Sweeney, son, and we haven't had any dinner."

A Matchbox P-47 for EUR 75,-. Not even a vintage boxing. Whatever this seller smoked, I do NOT want it...

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

"Might be complete"... At least, it's just EUR 6,- postage.

Just imagine what it might be worth if someone hadn't torn the sticky tape off the lid like that.
