Looking forward to this being the biggest one yet..

My 50% ??? is ready for covering ;) . It probably won't be the smallest but I have still found it pretty fiddly to build......

Will it fit in the glove compartment of a 747?

I spose I'd better come........

I'll not have a model of the 'official' theme but I should have one of my own 'personal' theme - ie a bit weird......

A big thanks to Neil at iGull; he has just sent a box of seven part kits plus a mystery bag of retro goodies for prizes at Ponte again.

He can only keep doing this if we keep supporting him buying them so don't be a stranger.

Yes... this is an unashamed plug for him :lol:
