So how many of you had this when you was younger and not so grey.LOL LOL

The 1/32 Matchbox SA330 Puma





I had one of these 30 odd years ago, can't remember what happened to it. But I always wanted to redo it and now is as good a time as any. The model was started last year on another forum so this is a quick show of what I've done and where it is today.

This was second hand when I brought it and as so was missing a couple of bits, so I brought some bits to improve the model.

The cockpit was missing a control stick and levers.



So I made some new ones.

Now with my helicopters the main rotor blades have to be stowed, (it helps with the space)

So I needed to convert this.



To this.





With a lot of old kits theres always a gap somewhere.



I'll be having my doors open so that takes care of the issue.
