rejoice airfix to build 1/24 scale mossie

#2
It's not that big. 68.8 cm wide (2'5" ish)

I would like to build a RC Mossie though, and fly it at German flying days.

Der Der Der Der de de de de de etc......(Can't remember the tune, just know the words)

sure would have as a 12 year old when I built models. Had the 1/48 scale one which had next to no interior detailing. Airfix did go belly up - they must be owned by someone else now.

Not the most reliable of sources but probably true in this case.

Wiki....Airfix

Founded in 1939, Airfix was owned by Humbrol from 1986 until Humbrol's financial collapse on 31 August 2006. As of 2007, Airfix is currently owned by Hornby

You're right, the blurb on the website refers to 'the old Airfix company'. Modelling's wonderfully advanced these days - photo-etched vegetation, individually turned brass stick grenades, working tracks, real barbed wire in 1/35th scale. Amazing.

I'd love to buy this, but I'd never finish making it. All those fiddly bits that no-one ever bloody sees (interior, engine detailing and the fcuking landing gear in particular) would all break, get stuck together, get stuck to me and generally make me so angry I just binned the whole thing half way through!

I made loads of kits when I was younger and got really quite good, but I always struggled when things got small and complicated as I'm a complete spacker and I don't have much patience!

However, the idea of requestioning a room in my new house from my wife as a "man's room" where I can hang big aircraft and do manly stuff strikes me as being a good idea :)

It gets down to -30 in winter here (on the penis scale of temperature that's at the "where the fcuk's it gone?" level), so although I will have a shed I doubt I could build models. However, the plot of land is large enough so I'm planning one of these for the summer:



(I'm really not kidding about the land either...)

4 bedrooms, no little crabbys running around yet, means I can turn at least one bedroom into my own little haven full of model aircraft, maps, posters of sheds, hardcore pornography on the computer etc...

Ok, you've shown us where you keep your hardcore porn, now back to thread, where are you going to hang your model?
