Blame James May!
Finally got round to writing about Christmas. It was an odd one, it was like Christmas 1989 and I was 15 all over again.
Why? It was all James May's fault, he does a show about Airfix, I talk about building them as a kid and hey presto - Airfix for Christmas!!!
The first to be built was a Harrier GR3, see the top image on the right. The second was a Typhoon 1b, which has gone together a little better I think. WWII models are always a little easier as there are less bits to put together.
I have to say though, I'm not happy with the colour, needed more research, oh god - it's happening again.
It was kind of cool being a kid again and building them. More to come, probably! I do have my eye on the HMS Warspite model, I do have a kind a reason for this as Granddad was on her during the war.
