Getting the kids modelling ! (1)
A trip to the Muckleburgh collection on the north Norfolk coast (Weybourne camp) with its working tanks, static exhibits and model displays inspired son no.3 and his two cousins to build their first models. M. aged 11 chose the 1/76 Airfix Sd. Kfz. 234 to build while his cousin E. aged 14, has started an Airfix Sea Harrier (new tool). A(11) chose an Airfix GR.3 giftset
the finished 234 one day later.
E's Sea Harrier took a couple of days of intense concentration and effort - with little or no adult guidance, this is the finished model.
And A has since gone on to complete this very impressive B-17 !
