|Name:||SCM Groupbuild - Matchbox Nostalgia|
Build a Matchbox kit. Original or Revell rebox is ok. But it's more fun with those multi coloured sprues in the original boxings.
Not allowed: Non original kits in Matchbox livery. Revell made some misshandling of the brand durin' their ten year ownership of Matchbox by putting really old Revell, Frog and Otaki kits in Matchbox boxes.
Scratchbuilding, after market goodies is allowed as well as building the kits OOtB, even building the kits according to the old Matchbox slogan "No Painting Necessary" is ok if one feels that's the way to go.
If there's any questions on the origin of a kit it's easy to check it up over at this page. http://www.matchboxkits.org/
Most important is to have fun in the process.
A little Matchbox history (in German) http://www.plastik-modellbau.org/blog/legenden-des-modellbaus-matchbox/2012/
If you've trouble sourcing a Matchbox kit check at E-Bay or for example these two companies specialised at selling second hand kits.
Let us build as many Matchbox kits as possible in the space of two months.
