I started building models in 1971 when I was 6. My first model was a 1/32 P-40 Warhawk. Revell I believe. From there I moved onto the standard cars, Apollo spacecraft, and other kid orientated kits.

Doh... I knew there was a video where I needed to edit out a 'dead space'. Lol... you guys who fully watched the earlier version must have had a good chuckle on that part. All edited now though. Cheers, Jim

Hi everybody, When I first saw this set I got this brainwave of putting em in a diorama (vignette) of a POW-camp, with a barrack and/or guard tower. And maybe even a simultanous escape through a tunnel out from the barrack, with the boxing match acting as a diversion for the guards. But I don't know if a thing like that ever happened. Of course is the airfield option also great with a Custom Dioramas tent or a Bofors. Regards, Anne (dude, iam sorry)
