Cue everything going all wobbly as we go back to 1972 - a 12 year old with the relevant patience and experience! I didn't have the correct paints so some emerald green dulux gloss, gold and an old tin of eau de nil found in the shed formed the colour scheme.

Had a rekindled spurt of modelling fever early thirties and now tempted to begin over again.

On the subject of Spits et al, I have have never heard anything that can thrill like the sound of a Merlin on full chat! (unless its two in a Mozzie).

I have a Vulcan Bomber full tilt full power straight up...Nothing like it..Never heard anything to beat that, it shook the ground for miles..
Used to live near North Weald airfield and have seen them all over the years, at all the airshows held there, nothing thrilled and captivated like the Vulcan Bomber, peoples mouths just used to drop at the sheer spectacle and noise created..:-D

This is a hot deal though, brings back memories of building my first Airfix model aircraft, a Fairy Swordfish 2 winged first world war bomber..:thumbsup:

Agreed for physical presence and just how damed big they are when close up!

But............ still maintain the Merlin can't be topped for the way it touches you on all levels. ;-)

All those Airfix kits, Commando mags, air rifle v out of favour kit battles and don't forget "Brian Inglis".

Taka taka taka...............:thumbsup:

Nice price for a really nice big kit.

I once had the pleasure of the Battle of Britain flight passing almost directly over my house (that's 6 Merlins) at fairly low level in Essex, the awesome noise (and I'm using the term in it's true meaning here for a change) was so intrusive and stirring that you had to get out and see what was coming you way a good mile or so away.

When they did pass over the reverberations through the body were something I'll never forget.

Sheer mechanical pleasure & joy......coupled with all that goes with what they actually were, stirring stuff on all levels.

Same thing, living in Essex with the Battle of Britain flight coming almost directly over the house pretty low level. Absolutely awesome

Also had the pleasure of sitting in a coach next to the runway at Heathrow. It was nighttime as Concorde took off. Brilliant, shook my fillings and everything :-D

Heat added
I used to love making these things as a child, possibly due to the smell of the glue.

We are lucky enough to have a lanc & sometimes the BB flyby go right over our house & bank in the field next door, every time is like the first! ......shivers!

Price has gone up to £44.99 :(....and just as I was starting to convince my other half to let me buy it...Can't see it much cheaper anywhere else, saw one shop had it at 36.99 but probably PnP on top.
SADFACE.:thinking:
