Greg Baker oh right, we just talked about Starfighters... I forgot. This will work well for what you've got planned. I did much the same thing with their MiG-23 offering.

Matthew A Now you've got me thinking. My first solo kit as a tot in the 80s was a Revell 1:144 jet with swing wings I remember this box top [img1]. But it had a different wing mechanism instead of this [img2]/revision/latest?cb=20180212154534 it was more like this [img3]/revision/latest?cb=20160608014544 but the box was not this [img4]

Matthew A I was thinking it was Revell's Tonka [img1][img2]/revision/latest?cb=20161007151844 [img3]/revision/latest?cb=20161007151758. It doesn't help that I couldn't read and I called it a Mirage because apart that the only other jet I new was a Harrier. And I knew what a Harrier looked like [img4]. which brings me to a funny story - once on holiday on Pendine Sands by older brother called out to me "LOOK a Tornado!" Now I had no idea that it was a type of plane but I had seen the wizard of Oz so there was I ignoring the jet flying on its side and was busy looking out at the horizon for a twister - up untill recently I thought my brother had been lying.

Matthew A And this is why I called it a Mirage [img1]. So it must have been a MiG, not a Tonka and the year was 1988, which made me...
PS the Matchbox toy changed colour from orange to pink/red
