Schoolboy build 4
« on: May 01, 2021, 08:18:59 PM »
Another old pic recently rediscovered.

Merit Avro 505K built straight from the box back in about 1970 (but roundels etc painted instead of the transfers (decals) that never worked!).
I remember being so excited to find Merit made a DH2 and a 504K, to complement their Aurora copies, but they never released news of  forthcoming subjects so you were left to trawl around all the newsagents and bike shops to find anything new. Unfortunately that's all the additional WWI stuff they made but the 1/48 Walrus and Swordfish were pretty spectacular at the time. Never did find the 1/48 Hawker Hunter: I wonder if it was actually made. Anybody ever see one?
