the Nissan is about to back in to get its paint stripped for the 4th time cos its being a pain in the proverbial, and i just need a break from Roger, who was always going to be a side project anyway, so im going to do something small and simple

its a revell repop of the old Matchbox kit, so its got that cool dio base. i can remember doing this when i was a kid so its going to be fun to revisit it

Cool! popcorn

I always wondered why armor type stuff is 1/76 and aero stuff is 1/72, with figures divided between the two.

alledgedly its something to do with the fact that rail stuff is 00 gauge which translates to 1/76 but why airifx didnt pick to do planes in the same scale when they first started i dont know

you can get plenty of armour stuff in 1/72......i did a revell jagdpanther in 1/72 last year and am planning on doing their repop of the matchbox 1/76 one soon

And if you place those two side by side, could you tell there's a scale difference?

Nice one Paul. Those 'tufts' on the base must be tiny.
