49 Year Old Models

These two model kits came up on EBay for a low price, so I bought them as I fancied making a couple of World War One aircraft. When they arrived the boxes said they were made by Revel in 1964 so as I write, they are 49 years old! Most collectors would keep them in pristine condition and covet them as things of beauty. But, I'm not a collector, so I built them.


The Albatros D-III



The De Havilland DH.2

  1. They look really good. A bit of an unfair fight, but nice models.

    1. Thanks Paul, a man after my own heart! Where's the enjoyment in having something stuck in a box?
