 Hi my name is Mike and been in to models all my life, now 45. I fly rc some examples are P40 B 60" wing and Ju87 Stuka 100" wing. Just returned back to the plastic kits and have buying a few old ww2 aircraft kits that one could not afford as a teen as well as newer Airfix kits. At some point the building will start.

 Welcome, Mike

If allowed by the forum rules, it would be very nice to see some pics of your big RC planes - I reckon the Stuka is about 8 foot wingspan, so about 1/6th scale?

Do you mean you are supposed to build kits as well as just buy them?   I knew I was doing something wrong!

Thanks for the welcome. You mean you build them!!!. Yes I'd be happy to post some rc photos if allowed. Well my stash is at 45 kits now with about ten on the want list.

Hi Mike.

Welcome to the forum, like-wise I'd alsao love to see some pics of you R/C kites. You could always post pics of an Airfix build; ie Stuka B2, and inadvertantly post the bigger brother and then be unable to delete the pic, or some such excuse.

Being a 60 something I have been modelling now, off and on, for some 50 years and can still remember when Airfix made their own paints and they came in square glass bottles. I didn't keep any of the bottles, much to my regret, but I do have some of the Airfix tinlets before Humbrol took over.As for my first kit, it came in a see-through bag, (you only got a box with series 2 and above,) and was possibly a Spit.  (By far too long ago to  remember.)My stash is vast and expanding exponentially, and not only with Airfix kits.

Thanks all for the warm welcome. I can remember my first kit was a Bf109 in a plastic bag with a cardboard topper by Frog. As for for stash last count was 45 kits.

Hi Colin.

Welcome to the forum. Like yourself I'm also an OAP modeller also started with Airfix, going down to Woolworths with a hot 2/- in my grubby paws looking for a modelling fix. Also my stash is growing bigger no matter how many models I seem to complete, some in the stash date back to those heady 2?- days.

 

Hoping to see some of your results & hearing about your adventures in the Airfix modelling world.
