Off the Bench: AEC Matador Airfix 1:76
Posted by ModelNerd on Sunday, May 12, 2024 10:05 PM

Haven't poster here in a great while. Haven't had much time for modeling, but I built this little Airfix kit to see if I still remembered how!

As it is a 50+ year old kit, it definitely had plenty of fit issues. Built mostly out of box, with the exception of the added clear windscreens (the kit had none), and a new bed cover, which I drew up in my CAD program, then 3D printed, as the enclosed one that came with the kit was thoroughly unconvincing. Painted with Tamiya acrylics. Enjoy the pics-

Kind regards,

Mark

Yeah wow that looks good! My hat's off to you guys that can model in 1/76th- I can barely see that small! And the 3D printed cover looks perfect, I'd have thought it came with the kit if you hadn't said so.
