Matchbox range of model kits

Revell 1/72 Victor K2

The Revell Victor is a 1982 Matchbox mold that builds into an impressive model. Yet, much work is required to eliminate the seam trenches. The engine intakes area is particularly problematic. Also the exhaust area is crudely molded. I [...]

Matchbox 1/32 D.H. Tiger Moth

This is an old build from 1986. A few days ago I gave it a good cleaning after sitting on the shelf for many years. While cleaning the Tiger Moth a lot of memories of the build came rushing back. I remembered this being a nice build and I [...]

My 2023 Builds

It has been a while since my last post so I figured I better get my wheels rolling again. A little late on posting my builds from 2023 but here they are. A little different year for me but happy with the results. I had my usual fun [...]

Matchbox 1/72 Mosquito Mk 30 (PK-116)

Matchbox 1/72 Hawker Hurricane Mk.IID, No. PK-49 (1989) This is Matchbox's later release of their earlier Hurricane but this time, with extra parts to build the Mk.IID version with the two 40mm cannons. I wanted to build this for a recent [...]

Pz.Kpfw.II Ausf.F

Found this kit in the local toy store. It was a spontaneous idea to join the Matchbox Group Build on Scalemates. Saw, bought and built the model within 2.5 hours. The idea was to paint the whole thing with the paint brush without using the [...]

Vintage models
