                    Re: Model Kits

                    We had very little to amuse ouselves at my our draconian boarding school. So I took up model areoplane making. Every family visiting day Mum would bring me a new model and I would begin immediately the family left and proudly show them next time they visited. The students had a model plane competition from time to time. I recall I won it at least five times. The winner pocketed the other boys lollies. I must have made 100 model planes during those days. My fave were the Brit Spitfire and Hurricane and WW2 German bombers.

                      Anyone remember Frog kits ? Now they were damnmed hard and the instructions were terrible !
                      A couple of Frog Model planes I made back in 2013 for fun.


                      Got the plans from somewhere.Both were good fliers and had lots of fun with them that year,Hay fever included.

                          Mostly airfix kits, I was even in the airfix modellers club that was fronted by Dick Emery
                          i remember one of the modelling tips was to make bullet holes in the models by holding a pin in a pair of pliers, heating it up on the gas stove , and piercing the model with the pin.
                          hence I had a Sunderland flying boat that looked like a tea bag and my mother asking what was that awful smell in the kitchen

                            i remember getting a BSA motorcycle kit from airfix and the instructions were written with one illustration of the whole exploded view and lots of instructions like , attach the front crankcase half to the left hand gearbox sprocket.
                            i threw the lot in the bin in frustration.

                            thing Id I could easily do it now

                              I think I may still have my Airfix modelers club badge somewhere.
