Arrival of a “Major Award!”
January 12, 2013 in Uncategorized
A wonderful surprise on getting home Friday. My understanding wife met me at the door with a big smile, “Your ‘major award’ was delivered!” Not wasting the chance for the season appropriate, ‘A Christmas Story’ reference, I immediately opened the packaging wondering aloud where the fragile’ sticker was in my best Darren McGavin impersonation.
I will not attempt to review the kit as this has been done a few times in the past. Opening the box one is greeted by individually bagged grey sprues, and I will say the moldings appear crisp and petite with fine restrained surface detail.
Fittingly the base kit I used for the Cavalier Mustang model selected to receive the prize is also Tamiya but in 1/48 scale, so here is the obligatory model and award shot.
The difference in size is remarkable, this will take up a lot of room in the display case.
Looking forward very much to building this, I will have to think up a good subject for this kit!
Thank you all again for your kind comments

Interestingly I had a few extra minutes waiting for my ride home from work Friday and stopped at the National Air and Space Museum. ( I work across the street) I happened to take this photo with my cell phone.
