I built this from the original Matchbox kit (2 colour) that was issued in the mid 1970's. I don't know if it was ever issued under Revell (it seems not). The decals had the usual residue of the Matchbox decals of the era when applying them, but [...]
The B-17 Flying Fortress is one of the iconic aircraft of World War 2 and easily one of the most recognizable bomber type in the world (although fans of the Lancaster might have something to say about that.)
When it first flew in combat with th[...]
I would like to present a few pics of one of my older models – a Siskin from Matchbox. A few details were scratchbuilt and the rigging was made from a black stockings (nylon thread). Kit was painted using GunzeSangyo Super Metalizer[...]
I've had this old Matchbox 1/700 Fletcher destroyer model for at least 25 years. I had built it partway down to the detail parts and left it, as shown in the picture to the right (no U.S. flag). Last weekend I decided that I wanted to take on [...]
