“ Brand: Airfix „
About two weeks ago I decided to get into a hobby and after watching The Longest Day, was inspired to create a diorama. After deciding on my diorama being 'braille scale' I went out to look for everything I needed.
On arrival to the model shop I looked in the window and there it was. A massive box bragging about how much was inside. I had to have it. After buying it for £29.99, I got home as quick as possible.
On opening the box I was met with sprues, a diorama base, paints, brushes, glue and Instructions (a nice little touch is a replica newspaper page).
The instructions were easy to follow and by the end of the day I had three veichles glued and ready for painting. The only thing that put me off about the set was the amount of soldiers. This isn't a bad thing because you are getting your money's worth but it is quite overwhelming being met with 100 little plastic men.
The brushes aren't brilliant but they do the job and the paints are acrylic so layer well onto the model.
Well I am still building this and I have to say it is brilliant. I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in this period of history or just likes building and painting models.
Highly Recommended 9/10
