I'll have ago at this as well with an Airfix C-130. The original mould that is, not the re-issued Italeri kit.

I will have a box shot up soon, there were no decals with the kit when I got it so I will use an Xtradecal sheet with a RAF 25th Anniversary scheme.

How do we document our progress? A new thread in this forum or will a new sub forum be created.

Maybe it would be best just to post everything in this thread rather than spreading it through several threads? That might lead to more of a continued discussion.

Excellent mate, lookin' forward to see your progress!

Present your start in this thread n' take it from there by creatin' a personal build thread in this forum that you fill with updates of your build or continue in this thread. It boils down to your personal taste.

At my chaotic desk:

Airfix: Messerschmitt Bf109E-4 1:72
Heller: FW 190 A-5 1:24
Revell: F-104C Starfighter 1:72
AZ Model: TP-81 Grumman Goose 1:72
Tasca: Sherman Firefly Vc 1:35
DML: Panther D 1:35
Tamiya: Char B1 Bis 1:35
Tamiya: Cromwell Mk.IV 1:35
Tamiya: Sherman M4 Early 1:35

As I build slowly...

Thanks Grant and Macca

Here is the box and contents shot



As you can see there are 2 kits in there but I will only be building one for now. I remember going down to the local newsagant and seeing the RAF boxing with the bloodhound missile set for a whopping $9 when I was a lad. Guess where my pocket money went the next week?

Anyway looking forward to a no frills build with this one.
