Holy dog noodles Batman !!
.. this is a total throw back of nostalgic proportions for me !! 🙂
I remember collecting the Kellogg's box lids to get this as a kid,
just wow ! never thought I'd see this again let alone being built properly ! 🙂

Where on Earth did you get this kit ?
where did you get the PE set for it ?
and where can I get one ? 😄

Don't tell me this has been in your stash for the last 45 years or so ! haha 😄
just awesome to see it again, definitely following this build !!

(if only Scalemates had a feature that could rotate images 90 degrees !! 😄 )

Cheers folks. Photos now rotated. @Choppa Nutta. So many questions!?!
Purchased from eBay. They appear every so often.
The PE are various sets. Dock yard cranes, water towers & ship parts which will be cut up as required.

That's cool one 🙂

Want to see more of this. 🙂 I remember I visited a drilling platform once. It was interesting how you had to go up the stairs from sea level, up to the top of the platform. Lots of sea/ocean beneath the stairs. 🙂

Thank you. Stalled build. Still on the bench. Although just received resin land rover kit from air-graphics... could inspire me to start again

What did you use for the antennas?
17. January, 18:01
Fantastic job. Congrats!

Mirko Römer
What a great build, wow!
17. January, 19:49
Aaron Liles
Thank you all very much. @skywalker I used the bristles from a fan brush. Cut them to size, colour using permanent marker or paint (depends on required colour)and attach with a small dab of white glue. The benefit is that they are not brittle and clumsy hands and thumbs won't snap them off 😄 hope this helps. Happy modelling
17. January, 22:45
Wow what a great idea... You really have done a phenomenal job modeling.
