Here is a sneak preview of my entry into to the starter set challenge (video will be up next monday at 1500 GMT)

If youre unaware of the Airfix starter set challenge, It was started by Model Minutes on youtube, and is a challenge to complete an Airfix starter set of your choice, using only whats in the box, and minimal other tools. In this case, i allowed myself a craft knife and sanding stick. Everything else used to achieve the finished item was what was supplied in the box, ie, poly cement, paint, brush etc. No extra items such as decal setting solutions, or gloss/matt coats etc.

How on earth did we cope before all the helpful tools we use now?!

  1. Beautiful result with the minimum of tools you had available, Tam @fow_models
    Love to see more of those starter kits.

  2. Beautiful result, literally out of the box, Tam! We did cope as kids without the super tools we now have...
    ...and we had great times back then

  3. Basic modeling at its best, nicely done!

  4. Nice work on this. There’s a lot to be said for the enjoyment derived from building a small scale kit the way did when we were young.

  5. That came out great Tam - I can't believe the result you managed with barely anything. Well done.
