I am just doing the finishing touches to a 1/12 scale model by Revell. I am amazed at the level of detail. I love looking at it almost as much as the real thing in my garage. I have one in an unopened box. Are they still available and for how much?

I built one up years ago from an original Matchbox kit, and built it as a Lightning, I grafted some pieces of small diameter copper pipe onto the front section of each header pipe so as to replicate the 1 5/8 open pipes, and made my own seat from a piece of Balsa wood covered in masking tape and painted matt black. Looks quite authentic. Cheers and Merry Christmas.

The two models in the background are Matchbox kits which I believe Revell took over the production of.

I wanted one of those models for my office after I bought a real one but I didn't want to put it together myself so I hired a kid to assemble it for me. It's what you might call a win-win for both the kid and me.

If he did help you with the real one he might actually learn something.......And that would really be something.......

I built the plastic kit some time ago, but a couple of house moves and it got roughed up a bit, threw it away. I have one of the metal kits waiting as a project for the future.
