Great little Roland! It is amazing to see "Actual" survivors! All that is left of mine are those few photos  :(

Many moons ago (1994) not childhood but my first ww1 aircraft build when I gave this hobby a try. A Revell 1:72 spad XIII direct from the box. No previous documentation. No plans. No evergreen plastic. No airbrush... but pilot and a lot of fun:

I went back home to visit relatives this past week. Some photos of builds from late 1960s to early 1970s.  How these survived I do not know.

 The Roland was an MPC model. The others were Revell

I love seeing these old builds! Keep them coming. Amazing Rip that you still have some models from the 60s! Nicely built to boot. Mine went out long ago.

Guy - I have a picture like yours somewhere of myself doing much the same thing...!

Cheers,

BC
