I was going to build the 1/24 Hurricane, but this seemed like a fun potentially quick option. Big box and a lot of plastic, but the kit itself doesn't seem too complicated. Also, check out my tidy work bench. :lol:

Revell actually produce some really nice kits (along with the rubbish). And they are cheap. :P

Her'e my meager progress. Note the homemade sanding sticks ready to be put to work. :whistle:

"I thought that's what the english translation of Revell was" (I broke the quote tool trying to just quote Grover, and couldn't work out how to fix it...)

Mostly I agree with you but the 1/32 Ju-88 by Revell is one of my favourite kits! Not that it couldn't be improved with some PE here and there but a big step beyond what tends to come to mind when someone mentions Revell - if you see it going for a good price I recommend grabbing it.

Nice looking kit. I remember when I was younger and making the little academy space shuttle, that looks like way more fun.
Can't wait to see more :)

What a very funny thread. Well it looks okay even if its rubbish. I do like Grover's translation of Revell.... my turn to lol at the monitor. And yes, more clean bench envy.

I remember in the 80's my friends dad started one of those. He never finished it. . .

Funny how the translation changes when you add "Germany" to the end of Revell. I'd love to do a shuttle though, especially if it had moving parts

I thought I would try and finish this before the BoB build. I masked and painted the main colours. This is basically just blocking out the colours for the decals to add lots of he detail such as leading edges, tiles, windows etc.
