Matchbox Lancaster Help
Posted by cardshark_14 on Thursday, July 01, 2004 3:15 AM
Hi everybody, I am new to this site, and first want to want to congratulate you all on this very nice site.

I am having a bit of a problem...
A friend of mine gave me a bunch of old half-started kits and one of them is a 1/72 Matchbox lancaster. It is missing parts, and more importantly the instruction sheet.
Does anyone know of a resource where I can obtain a copy of these instructions?
Failing that, does anyone know what happened to this Matchbox kit? Did any other brand buy it?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum!

I have this kit, partially assembled, from Matchbox. If I can find the instructions (and the Kit!) in my attic, I could try to scan them and sent to you by e-mail (you've better have a big "In-Box").

Regards,
Diego.

Hi everyone, and thanks for all the help. Unfortunately, life, in the form of engineering school got in the way of my modeling and I'm just now getting back into it.  

 Diego- I haven't finished it yet, truth be told, I haven't even started it. :(  Someday though, and I will post pictures...

 Once again, thanks for all your help.

 Thanks!

Hi cardshark_14 !

Looks like you're back at the point where I joined the chat, many moons ago! Wink [;)]

Well Mate, now I'm in a different country but my kits are all boxed and in long-term storage (I miss my attic! Big Smile [:D]). Even though, if you still need the instructions maybe I'd be able to access the right box (which one can be? Blush [:I] ) and find those instructions to scan& email them to you.

Cheers from Downunder,

Diego.Cool [8D]

Howdy Diego!

Good to here from you, maybe now we can wrap up this internet chase Wink [;)] Sounds like we're finally on the same page at the same time.  Thanks for putting up with my lack of responsiveness, school was hell, but its done now!  So, to make a long story short, I am still missing those instructions, though I do have the paint guides that were included.  So, though I have quite a few builds lined up ahead of the Lanky, I'd appreciate it if you could scan them.  No big hurry, just whenever you get around to it...Smile [:)]
