  1. What sort of figures are you after? I’ve got quite a lot doing nothing but taking up space.
  2. The Revell set is nice, they are well moulded, but... They are a bit on the big side. I managed to get a set for a non-extortionate amount when I was looking to populate a diorama and collected as many different ones from all the decent sources I could find. They come up big against all of the others and illustrate the issues of mixing HO, OO, 1/72 and 1/76. People are different shapes and sizes, but not that much. They would be great on their own though. I think the one that puzzled me was the radio operator: really nice, but even in a Lancaster you’d hardly see him.
  3. I can only echo dozens of others before: if you built it, and if you like it, then it’s served it’s purpose and it’s a ‘good model’. Personally, I am everywhere on the scale. I can fuss over tiny ‘never to be seen again’ interior details and I can paint it all black and shut the canopy. I can just assemble a 1970s kit as it is or I can deconstruct it so it ends up being mostly plasticard and Milliput. It depends what I want out of it at the time. There is one particular subject niche that I know a lot about: probably as much as anyone for some quite good reasons. If I see someone make a model in that niche then I am always pleased to see it, am delighted to offer advice IF solicited but will otherwise try to hold my tongue unless someone is offering some dodgy ‘expertise’. I build for my pleasure alone. I don’t worry about perfection all the time because my skills won’t deliver it!
  4. The Morris Minor Budget Tank Transporter?
  5. May I chip in that I will take it as a personal slight that none of the new releases will cover my own niche interest of Algerian training aircraft of February 1953 and that the dearth of such kits is a glaring oversight as I would have bought at least two? I will conveniently ignore the sound commercial banker within the releases because I am a born contrarian and look down upon anyone who likes things others have heard of.
