Airfix 172 Lightnings
Carrying on my Airfix love affair, I eagerly waited the new Lightning when it was released. I have built several of the 1/48 scale ones and they were/are superb models and a delight to build.
I asked Santa for an F-2A when it was first released, but whilst in WH Smiths one day saw a box being opened and within it the new mould, new release Lightning. Unable to help myself, it was wallet out, Debit Card in hand.
So worth it as I could not decide which scheme I preferred, so by having two kits, problem solved and did one of each.
Once the F6 was released, I had to get, even with that initial flawed box art of the tail plane less super interceptor.
Good kits, worth getting as good to model, but the Airfix 1/48 Lightning still king of the castle.
