We're looking forward to 2017, as there are lots of interesting models coming soon. And we'll be looking at the best and most interesting of them in the year to come.
Meantime, here is a roundup of scale model deliciousness. Enjoy your break and keep an eye open for more of these festive picture albums.
First off (header pic) are a pair of absolute classics, 1:72 scale Airfix Spitfires. At left is the poly-bag wrapped Spitfire Mk IX from the 1960s At right is an anniversary version of the first Airfix Spitfire. The header card is a reproduction of the original, but the somewhat unwarlike bright blue kit itself was a new version. As for the artwork, let's just say it's come on a bit during the intervening years!
A nifty AMT diorama (below) featuring the Three Stooges and a somewhat weatherbeaten Ford Model T pickup. A review of this kit will be coming up after Christmas.
Ed Roth designs, beautifully made.
