Lindberg 1/48 scale P-80 C Shooting Star unexpected gift
Suprises can come to you from a very unsuspected source...
As it happened I visited a model train fair yesterday together with a longterm modelmaker friend.
He spotted between all scale trains an old Revell 1/32 scale Spitfire, one of the earliest boxings. The stallholder wanted a substantial amount of money, but after some negociating the price of this Revell kit dropped gigantic as the stallholder noticed there was no intrest at all from trainlovers in this kind of kits. My mate bought the Spitfire and as a complete surprise the stallholder turned up with this old Linberg kit and asked me if I had any interest, followed by the famous words "please take it with you, no one wants it" So a gift from the 50's, well before my time, but wow a great addition to my "little museum of old kits and history". I'm happy as can be, and will display it in one of my cabinets. Sharing this as it might bring back memories for some of the iModeler community. Please feel free to share your memories as a result of my posting.
