I think I must have watched all his videos.

This one is a good example of his excellent work.

Obviously rushed but not bad for a beginner :lol:

I'm sure I've seen another 'step by step' by this bloke before but can't remember what the model was.. unless of course it was this one and I've already seen it! :wall: 8) :lol:

My excuse is we never had those tools or paints when I was a kid :lol:

Watch his little brother come along and blow up the model with firecrackers. :lol: I had a friend back in 6th grade who blew up his brother's Lotus 49 model with bottle rockets. Launched from the roof of his family's shed it flew pretty well before it exploded. A beautiful model it was...green and yellow. :(

Right, that's dealt with all my unmade kits! What's next?

I once had an air pistol. I also had several Airfix wagons for my Hornby 00 setup. They were great models, but they did not roll very well.
Eventually I organised a large run of track, and a train of Airfix wagons running round it, and took potshots at it each time it went past 8) :lol:

:lol: :lol: :agree: I did the same with my Airfix 1/600 "Prinz Eugen"; I had it for years, but left it under the house we sold when we moved up here.

Hmm.. I took shots at the ones suspended from my bedroom ceiling. Goes without saying that my dad was over the moon :rant:

:lol:

I drive past what used to be a farm on my way to and from work. The little pond is still there though smaller than it was (or maybe I grew up and it seems smaller). Almost without fail, it reminds me that somewhere in the bottom of that pond is an Airfix Titanic which we got to balance then set it on fire. There was no suitable iceberg to hand :lol:
