Bam! Instant visit to Nostalgia Central.

I had at least 3/4 of those models at one stage. Where are they now?

I'm just building 2 of those Airfix 1/72 Centurions and if I ever do anything so foolish again....... what I need is a 10 yr old to do it for me!

A quick tally gives 8 of those models built as a kid. My favourite was the Matador & gun - although it was annoying that it came without a gun crew!

US marines was the box that started it for me, remember that little 2 part dinghy and the marine rowing it? That was it, I was away!

Thanks for posting that.
