Glenn . Mmm... This will be fun? Actually It looks pretty good even the clear parts aren't too bad for a Mach 2 kit. I want to paint it up as a yellow and bare metal one IPEC operated here in Australia in the 70's and 80's [img1]
gorbygould My dad learnt his trade as an electrician, putting the wiring looms into Argosy's, when he worked at the Bitteswell and Baginton, Armstrong Withworth factories. In fact there is still one on display at Baginton. So I have a bit of a soft-spot for the Argosy, oddly enough, my dad doesn't, he described it as a flying pile of junk.

Glenn . That's funny! I've heard the RAF called it a trash hauler!

Glenn . Cheers! Ray, That's sounds good. I do have a sheet of IPEC markings for 1/25 scale trucks laying around but that will make it even easier to do. I was lucky and picked one up for only $50 at a swap meet down here not long ago. It actually looks pretty good for a Mach 2 kit. Should look great in the bright color scheme!

Burkhard D Mach2? Well, you are a brave modeller. I'll follow
Glenn . Thanks guys! It's not that bad a kit. It might be a while before this gets built? Well that depends on the decals i guess if i get them in the near future i might make a start! I really need to build something! I get lazy... It's too easy to order stuff online nearly each week from the far corners of the globe! I spend more time un-boxing stuff and stacking it than making it!
