Here's another one out of the stash I've wanted to build for a long time. I got it in this condition, someone removed some of the parts from the sprues but other than that's unstarted.





Comments and questions welcome as always.

Went in the bin last night, the cockpit was all done but I cracked it trying to put it in to the fuselage and went Hulk on it :blush:

No mate it was a real dog of a kit anyway, the plastic was thick and brittle, the resin was nice. I've got another couple of viable candidates to choose from.
Old Revell -1/48 ME262
Promodeller - 1/48 Arado
Trumpeter - 1/32 Mig 21
Tamiya - 1/48 Meteor (in a bag no decals etc, not sure if it's all there).
Revell - 1/32 Salamander but I don't have time to do it the justice I want.

Plus a couple of other qualifiers

Do the MIG21!!!!
Stay away from the Arado, if it's the kit I'm thinking off, it is a real dog to get together and also to get everything painted.... Unless you like a challenge of course... :P

Which is the revell one, which is the hasegawa molds. Is the promodeller box massive? I have the hasegawa nightfighter boxing and the box is about a quarter the size of my uncles revell box.
haseagwa made the molds for revell, and then after a little bit started doing their own releases from it.

If the Tamiya Meatbox is all present and correct do that, Gaz... It's a no brainer/fall-together build and looks superb (unless it's the awful looking Mk1 with that horrid looking canopy). Failing that, if you have an acre or two of workbench, build the MiG !!
