B.a.t.B Yep, Beauty and the Beast Part 1.

October 31, 2014 · in Aviation · · 14 · 1.1K

Well here it is, un veiling day.
The story so far.
The good Lady Biggles (Rose) built the Beauty, a MK 1 ( 1/72).
Her third ever build and first solo so to speak.
Well Tamiya speaks for itself, shake the box and it goes together.
Alas the decals don`t, so a raid to the spares is what happened.
Also the carpet monster struck as well.
For more info read the wip.

I am proud of her, as in my eyes she done a great job.

As for the Beast, well that is another story to follow later, i.e still finishing.

  1. Well Done Lady Rose, my 3rd model never looked that good & and I'm talking about the '90s when I took the hobby up again.

  6. Rose is to be congratulated on this, she has done a wonderful job with a classic - very nice and good to have spare decals around, I'd say.
