It was at this scheme that "ΑΡΗΣ" took part in the Forgotten War with the Greek Korean Deta[...]

This kits was built for club challenge "Airfix Cup" which has proved popular each year with a specific new tool Airfix being chosen as the subject matter. In 2019 it was the Sea Fury and I didn't finish mine until after the event, so with COVID [...]
