I haven't done any vehicles for quite a while as aircraft modelling is my main interest and previously I have stayed away from Airfix's 1;76th scale vehicle range, being the wrong scale for me.
However when this new tool kit was released a few years ago I had to have it!!
It contains some interesting vehicles that I haven't previously seen in kit form (though they may be out there) and for me its in the correct scale to supply my 1:72nd scale RAF aircraft. The kit was in my stash for a while but I have decided now is the time.
The kit contains 5 large sprues of grey plastic with vehicles, bombs and lots of accessories! There is 1 clear sprue with vehicle windows which I believe is a first for Airfix at this scale (if you exclude the former JB Models tools that airfix now own).
The first vehicle started was the Standard Tilly Utility Car. Some parts were sprayed on the sprue like the chassis whilst I assembled the truck body before paint.
About the only thing I can see missing from the kit is a driver and any other ground crew personnel. SHAME ON YOU AIRFIX!! So I made a visit to my spares box and found a former crew member from an old tool Airfix Refueling Set, he was given a new uniform and a promotion!
Thats it for tonight. The Tilly probably won't take long to finish, but the whole set will take a bit longer as Im likely to do an aircraft between vehicles??
