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.

Dont know what their plans are but its not a one time deal. They have already released a Pz.Kpfw II. Charles King won one at our IPMS competion last year in Stockholm. Everybody was laughing as nobody knew how he was gonna manage to take it home with him. The box was huge!!
